Having represented Canada on the world stage and played professional soccer for over 12 years, Dr. Tancredi is well aware of the physical demands of being active and she understands what it takes to compete at the highest level, to stay healthy and perform at your best. This is why Dr. Tancredi specializes in treating athletes of every level from professional athletes to active individuals who are looking for that little competitive edge through preventative and rehabilitative care. Dr. Tancredi understands the true power of a team effort and will therefore work with the patient and other care providers to make sure the patient is receiving the most efficient and beneficial treatment plan that suits their lifestyle needs. Through a functional and biomechanical assessment, Dr. Tancredi will look to reveal any dysfunction that could be causing or leading to the patients chief complaint and from there a plan is created incorporating mobility, strength and/or maintenance programs.

Dr. Tancredi graduated from The University of Notre Dame majoring in Anthropology and Pre Med, where she received a soccer scholarship and won a National Championship in 2004 as captain of the team. She earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan University in St Louis Missouri, graduating top of her class with honours, Magna Cum Laude, and named class Valedictorian. During her schooling at Logan, Dr. Tancredi worked with high school, NAIA and NCAA DIV 1 athletes from many different sports.

She was a part of the Chiropractic team to be involved with the University of Missouri Football program, and she was also handpicked to work in a multidisciplinary clinic heading the rehabilitation program for stroke and paraplegic patients as well as treating the USA wheelchair rugby team. Dr. Tancredi completed her Chiropractic internship in Chicago with Dr. Josh Akin who is the head Chiropractor for the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears.

Additionally, Melissa earned her Masters in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, where she completed her internship working alongside both the Sports Scientist and lead Physiotherapist for the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team.

What our clients are saying
  • "‘I've been a patient of Dr. Kelsick for the past 10 years, and Dr. Rite for the past 4, and the two are truly amazing at what they do! Although their titles are Chiropractors, they both have such a wide base of knowledge and understanding of the body, that I often feel as if our sessions are a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and occasionally even nutrition. As such, when I see them, I know I am being taken care off. As an athlete, and simply an injury prone individual, they have both truly made a difference in how my body functions. I definitely recommend =).’ "
    Sabrina Nettey
  • "‘Dr. Kelsick and his team are truly amazing. They’ve been putting me back together and keeping me moving for more than 15 years and now take care of my whole extended family, from my 86-year-old mom to my teenage daughters. Dr. Kelsick goes the extra mile to understand exactly what is going on with your body in order to provide the very best solutions. No problem is too complex or challenging. Think Dr. House with a far better bedside manner!’ "
    Peggi Peacock
  • "‘As an athlete my goal is to have a fit and healthy body, and Maxfit Movement Institute helps me maintain this goal. The team of Doctors are truly gifted, and their positive outlook on life is amazing. Thank you for making a difference in my life.’"
    L Murphy
  • "‘The difference with the staff at MaxFit, especially Randy and Wilbour: they take the time to assess and determine the source of your aches or pains. Not only do they treat whatever it is, they explain how to avoid it happening again. I have tried many physio-therapists but none of them come close to MaxFit. Highly recommended. ‘"
