Are you leaking urine, having pain with sex, or recovering from having a baby?

I help women find relief from pelvic floor symptoms in the Houma, Thibodaux, Raceland, and surrounding areas.


What my patients have to say:

"I have been struggling with painful intercourse and urinary problems for years. I got to the point where I saw a urologist, gynecologist, and endocrinologist, but the person who helped me the most was Dr. Melissa. She really listened to me during each of our sessions and helped me get my life back throughout the past few months. I am now able to pee without feeling like my pelvic floor is tight, and I am back to pain free sex and feeling like myself."

Dr. Melissa Thompson, PT, DPT, MTC has always been an advocate for holistic health to alleviate neuromusculoskeletal symptoms during pregnancy, postpartum, and throughout a woman's life.


She believes in alleviating these symptoms holistically by finding the root causes of your condition and using her expert skills to fully address your pelvic health from head to toe.

What my patients have to say:

“As a mom of 4, I always thought that pelvic and hip pain was just part of motherhood. I finally made the decision to make my pelvic health a priority, and I’m so glad that I did. I had heard from friends about pelvic PT and I’m so glad I finally gave it a try. Dr Mel has helped me to heal my body in ways I never thought possible!! She is so thorough and made me feel so comfortable throughout the process at all my sessions. Thank you Dr Mel!”
