Clinic directors:

Spine & Sport Clinic Director, Melissa Walls, physical therapist

Melissa Walls, PT, DPT, Pilates Certified

Melissa knew from a young age that she wanted to become a Physical Therapist after her own sports injury took her out of soccer for more than a year. She graduated with Honors from the University of California Davis with a BS in Exercise Science and went on to Chapman University to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Melissa began her career as a Physical Therapist at Envision Sport in 2005 (then South County Physical therapy & Pilates). It was here that she fell in love with the practice & results of Pilates leading her to become Pilates certified in 2009. Through her certification through Studio Du Corps, Melissa learned how to utilize Pilates as both a tool for healing and performance. In 2013, she became a Co-Owner of South County PT with her long-time business partner, Darrin Yee.

When she is not treating, Melissa enjoys being active with her husband and two kids. She has coached soccer, been a team parent. and sponsored many local leagues. Due to their active lifestyle, Melissa has taken a keen interest in sports injury prevention to protect the youth from overuse injuries.

Her philosophy about PT is simple – her goals are driven by your goals and she feels passionate that Pilates can help you get there!
