Emelia P. Brogna, Doctor of Physical Therapy
Emelia began her career at Brigham and Women’s Hospital where she focused on acute injuries, surgical recovery and Breast Cancer rehabilitation.
When she transitioned to outpatient practice she immediately added to her education, and was fortunate to study with the world-renowned therapist, Igor Burdenko, learning first hand the Burdenko Method of aquatic therapy.
After moving to Vermont in 2009, Emelia further extended her range of therapeutic skills to include Myofascial Release in the John Barnes Method, while at the same time pioneering a innovative rehabilitation standard of care program for Lyme Disease, supporting the vast need here in Vermont.
To further round out her skill set Emelia went through the extensive multi-year coursework to become certified in Craniosacral Therapy, expanding her manual and holistic care to a new level of engagement.
She helps patients reach their goals by setting a clear intention for recovery and developing a shared commitment to the best plan of care. Because of her talents, training, and vast experience, she consistently heals patients that others can not.
She loves to sail, craft, cook, ski, and travel with her husband Tony and daughter Grace.
