Nancy Manchester, MSPT

Nancy completed a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at Boston University in 1997.

She earned her Bachelors of Science in Exercise Physiology from the University of Mass, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Nancy has completed internships at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Sports Conditioning Center in Brookline, Promina Kennestone Hospital in Georgia, and Everett Rehabilitation Services in Everett, Massachusetts.

Nancy’s clinical experiences while at Parkland Rehabilitation Services included working with patients with orthopedic concerns, those recuperating from total or partial knee and hip replacements, those recovering from shoulder, back, and ankle surgery, and those with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. At Massachusetts General Hospital, Nancy worked in orthopedic, medical, chest, and surgical settings. During her three years with the Brockton Visiting Nurse Association, she worked with patients in home care settings, evaluating and treating those with pulmonary, cardiac, neurological, medical, surgical, and orthopedic issues. Nancy also provided home safety training to patients and their families.

At Balance Physical Therapy, Nancy works with the full spectrum of patients. Her ongoing interests include manual therapy and women’s health. Through her continuous education, Nancy has enhanced her expertise in treating shoulder injuries, as well as treatment of the spine and core stabilization. Nancy loves having a hands-on role in helping patients recover from pain and injuries. She enjoys helping patients improve their functionality and showing patients how to reclaim their independence and overall lives. She believes that an important part of her role as a physical therapist is to educate her patients about their bodies so that they are empowered to further their own healing.

When Nancy isn’t working with patients, she enjoys skiing, snowshoeing, walking, hiking, yoga, weight training, group classes, and spending time with her husband and three children in Windham, NH. Nancy has been part of the Balance family since 2008.
