Melissa Vargas, PT, DPT, ATC, has been practicing in outpatient orthopedics since 2008. She is excited to work in her own neighborhood bringing the highest level of quality rehabilitative care to Logan Square and the surrounding area. Melissa has also worked at the Morton Grove location of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute.
Melissa enjoys the variety and challenge of the outpatient orthopedic world. She is driven to influence change for the whole person, not just the injury. Melissa appreciates the collaborative nature between physicians, therapists, nurses, and support staff, which empowers patients to take an active role in their own recovery process. She has a passion for working with endurance athletes and treating neck and upper back injuries.
Outside of the clinic, you can find Melissa spending quality time with her family, taking her dog for long walks, running, or baking cupcakes.
