“Thought I’d drop you a line and let you know I did a triathlon today. Half mile swim, 18 mile bike, 4 mile run. It went great! Fastest swim, 23mph on the bike on a road bike, not a tri bike, no race wheels either.
Big difference between those types, road bikes are typically slower!!! Ran the 4 mile run in 26:45, apprx 6:40 pace. I ended up 2nd overall. I’ve done no speedwork on the run yet and I think it’s probably time. I felt fine on the run, I’ve just done no speedwork and wasn’t able to pull the guy back in front of me. I just didn’t have that next gear:)
I want to thank you again for all of your help since January! I would never be where I am without you and your help. If I can write anything for you or if you would like to post anything on my successes and recovery just let me know.
I cannot begin to thank you for all that you have done for me. In a lot of ways, you saved my life. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not found you. This Thanksgiving I am thankful that I did find you and that you care so much about your patients and that you are so good at what you do. You amaze me. I will always be grateful!!!”
“I really appreciate everything you are doing for my back issue. I feel like I am seeing improvement for the first time in months! My attitude has already changed and I really owe it all to what we have been working on it our sessions.”
“After cycling through four doctors, three physical therapists, and two years of unresolved knee and back pain, I have made giant leaps forward with Karen Davis-Warren’s help. Her expert physical assessment, precise treatment plan, and constant encouragement have put me back on track to health.”
“After spending a year trying other physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, an acupuncturist, and a chiropractor for severe and debilitating lower back and upper leg pain, I went to Savas who got me back to 100% pain free in a very short time period. I was able to start exercising again, play with my child, and resume normal working activities. Savas gave me my life back and I have made it my mission to make sure that anyone who suffers from chronic or acute pain visits him for treatment.”
“I’ve been helped by Melissa on many occasions throughout my career. She has been very professional and committed. The knowledge and understanding of an athlete’s needs by our physical therapist is vital to our career and I fully trust Melissa with my needs.”
“Melissa, your smiling face, expertise, and calming influence will be missed on the tour.”
“Melissa, the world of tennis will lose a great asset but other will benefit from your experience and very professional attitude in caring for athletes. I enjoyed working with you very much. I can only wish you the best in your new challenges and with your family.”
“Melissa, you will definitely be missed! You have helped me a lot when I have been injured and always nice to spend time and have a chat in the locker room.”
“Melissa, we lose a great physio that loves her job that she did very well! You prepare me always! Every time I needed something you found a solution. You are full of energy, a great teacher.”
“I was struggling with elbow pain for two months and getting treated by another PT in Atlanta but was not making any progress to playing pain-free tennis—or any tennis at all. Melissa was recommended by a doctor at Emory as “a great PT who knows tennis.” He was exactly right. We went through a course of treatment hoping to get me healthy and back on court while avoiding any medical procedures. Melissa told me this was a 50-50 proposition and, ultimately, I needed PRP. She pulled strings to get the right doctor at Emory to see me quickly and gave me wonderful care and advice about getting back on court. In addition to focusing on tennis, Melissa has provided me with a holistic approach to better health, showing me exercises, stretches and even a better chair to use at work.
Melissa is an expert and a caring professional. I wish I had known about her before getting hurt, as I am sure it could have been avoided. Now that she has helped me return to the court, I plan to rely on her advice and treatment to keep me there!”
“I have been working with Melissa for over 2 1/2 years now. I started treatment with her for some tightness in my neck and back while in CrossFit. Then, I developed tennis elbow. She treated me with dry needling, soft tissue mobilization, and helped me get more core control and strength using the Redcord Suspension Trainer. Working with Melissa has been fantastic for me. Following a PRP injection to my elbow followed by weekly visits with Melissa, my tennis elbow was gone within two months and I was back on the court. I have seen a lot of PTs in the past, but I shared my appointment with several other people. Melissa is completely one-on-one for the entire session, so we were really able to focus on me. She is incredibly knowledgable and always knows how to treat my issues. Melissa has so much experience with tennis players and tennis injuries. I have and will continue to recommend Melissa to anyone. She is such a great resource to have in Atlanta.”
