Michael Melander is a fantastic doctor. I rarely do internet reviews, but felt compelled to make a yelp account to bring attention to his work.
When I first visited Dr.Melander I suffered from chronic shoulder pain. I could not swim, lift, throw things, or even carry bags without flaring up my shoulder. Sometimes the pain would linger for days and distract me from daily life. Before coming to Michael, I had tried several options to alleviate this pain. A doctor prescribed OTC anti-inflammatories and rest with little effect. I saw a physical therapist for a few months, which led to a slight, perhaps insignificant reduction in pain.
During my first visit Dr.Melander was extremely straightforward. He told me exactly what techniques he would use to address my pain and why he was using them. He made sure I understood each step and patiently answered all of my questions. Dr.Melander said he expected my pain to subside within a few treatments. I was skeptical that it could possibly be that fast, but was willing to try.
After my first treatment, my pain lessened significantly. The activities that used to hurt me still did, but much less. After the second visit, MY PAIN VIRTUALLY DISAPPEARED. I deliberately tried to flare up my shoulder pain by exposing it to all sorts of stress, but could not. Now, after after a third visit my shoulder feels better than it had since before my injury. I can swim,row,run, and lift with no pain. Everything that would have caused agony before has no effect now. As a lifetime athlete, this is a godsend.
I am a software developer and heavy computer user who also suffers recurring wrist pain. Dr.Melander has started to treat my wrist pain (something I had no clue chiropractors could do) with promising results. I would recommend him to anyone suffering from any sort of pain problem.
Dr. Kelly is, in a word, amazing!
I was referred to her by my massage therapist, and totally and completely freaked out by the idea of chiropractic. In an hour, Dr. Kelly not only quieted my fears but also converted me for life! The initial appointment included a very thorough discussion of my pain points, and Dr. Kelly watching me move through certain stretches and movements to see what was up with my aching back. She explained to me what she saw, and then talked me through each adjustment so that nothing came as a surprise or freaked me out.
I also never got the impression that she was trying to “sell” me on anything I didn’t need. We took it appointment by appointment, seeing how I felt after and deciding on the next adjustment from there. Sometimes I screw it up by hunching over my laptop or running down the T with a loaded backpack, and I need a weekly visit for a month or so. And sometimes, I just go in to get my neck cracked because I like it.
I’d recommend Dr. Kelly to anyone looking for a chiro that they can trust… also FYI for BU students like me, she takes our student health insurance!
Michael is a fabulous clinician. He’s been able to effectively heal a decades-old injury in my leg, and has restored movement I thought was permanently gone.
Professionally, I’m an acupuncturist and all the clients I have sent to Michael come back raving.
Highly recommend seeing him!
I CANNOT say enough good things about Dr. Kelly. I have seen her off and on for the last 10 years. If that doesn’t say something positive without having to say much at all, I don’t know what will.
She has treated me for everything from chronic pain, to a car accident, to just annual stress relief.
She is also one of the most personable chiropractors ever, she is as nice as can be, and is very family oriented. She has moved offices before, and I’ve followed her, because she is that good.
She pays attention to detail, she listens, she has the most gentle touch, but the strongest hands. Like I said, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kelly 🙂
I had several weeks of treatment with Mike and he was able to help me tremendously. He works with an attention to detail that is uncommon in his industry. He treats every patient as special and adjusts his treatment in accordance with their reported symptoms. So many chiropractors that I have dealt with have three of four people being treated at the same time. I can’t stress how nice it was to get some personal attention. Thanks Mike!
Awesome. I was looking for a sports chiropractor who understood how to handle an athlete’s body and Jean was great. She didn’t try and tell me I needed to come in every two weeks – she fixed me up, showed me exercises to do and stretches and made my body feel like it was more aligned than I’ve been in months.
She knew exactly what she was doing, what to look for and the different types of techniques to work out my exact trouble spots whether they were muscular, joints or along my spine. I’ve been seeing chiropractors for almost 10 years now so I know a good one when I see it. Every city I move to, it’s a hunt for the right one – she’s it for Boston.
Also really personable, I felt like she actually cared about my situation and she’d been an athlete as well so she understood the different issues that come along with it. She explained what she was doing and talked me through the various muscles and trigger points without being condescending like other doctors can be
Would definitely recommend her to anyone – hard core athletes as well as weekend warriors.
So… it’s been about four months now, and I have had an avalanche of positive feedback about Dr. Melander. Everyone thinks he was an excellent choice and I have actually received several thank you emails for finding him. Dr. Mike is devoted, conservative in his care plans, honest and very highly skilled with an almost ridiculous amount of continuing education under his belt. I am proud to have him for a colleague and could not be happier with him……… I’m the chiropractor that he replaced/took over for by the way and I have developed personal long standing, trusting relationships with the patients who are now flooding me with positive emails. You can find me and my reviews on here somewhere, but if you need a chiropractor in Boston, give Dr. Mike a call. you will not regret it. You have my word.
