Physical Therapist & Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Michele McLellan Joins the Kaplan Medical Team

A Letter to Patients From Michele McLellan, PT, OCS, CLT

Greetings,

My name is Michele McLellan, and I am delighted to introduce myself as the newest member of the Kaplan Center’s medical staff.

I completed my physical therapy degree at Northeastern University in 1983. Since then I have become a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist – a distinction only 4% of licensed physical therapists in Virginia have achieved. As a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, I have expertise in decreasing edema and inflammation. I also specialize in analyzing the body for faulty movement patterns, mechanical restrictions, muscle imbalances of length and strength, and exercise prescription.

My passion has always been to treat the root cause of illness or injury and uncovering the factors that contribute to delayed healing. By being inquisitive, methodical and committed, my goal is to assist you to find answers for your pain and restore your ease of movement.

I am very excited to work with Dr. Kaplan and the other practitioners here at the Kaplan Center. Together we welcome the opportunity to develop a comprehensive treatment plan, which considers all aspects of healing – including your mind, body and spirit. A plan developed with your input allows for you to achieve your best possible health.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,

Michele McLellan, PT, OCS, CLT
