Meet Our Team 
Robert Melino
Northeastern University

Robert Melino is the managing partner and clinical director at Bay State Physical Therapy in Tewksbury.  Prior to opening the Tewksbury clinic in 2015, Robert served as the clinical manager for 9 years at Bay State Physical Therapy in Arlington. 

Rob believes that sound manual therapy is a must when treating patients.  After graduating from Northeastern University in 2006 with a masters degree in physical therapy, Rob attended the Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy.  For two years, Rob refined his manual therapy skills under the direction of Martin Langaas, a top PT in the field and mentor to many that have gone through the program.  Rob graduated from the Institute with full fellowship status and is a credentialed orthopedic manual physical therapist.

Rob’s passion lies with treatment of the cervical/thoracic spine.  He also enjoys working with rotator cuff pathologies and post-op ACL reconstruction.  Rob utilizes his manual techniques along with specific therapeutic exercise to help his patients achieve their desired goals.  He has a function oriented approach and believes it is important to involve the patient when formulating the plan of care.  Rob integrates strong patient education into his rehabilitation in order for the patient to understand their diagnosis and the necessary steps that need to be taken to get better.

Rob is a resident of Tewksbury where he lives with his wife and daughter.  He enjoys an active lifestyle and is an avid Boston sports fan.  Rob participates in local community based events and is excited to help and serve the residents of the Merrimack Valley area.

Amber Gardner
UMASS Lowell

Amber graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with her DPT after completing her B.S. in Animal Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Initially, she was on her way to becoming a veterinarian, as she has a passion for helping animals, but soon realized that her desire to understand how the human body works was a career she wanted to pursue further. She is licensed in the state of Massachusetts as a Physical Therapist and is an active member of the APTA. Her athletic background from a young age has fueled her excitement for treating general orthopedic conditions that affect both the spine and extremities.

Amber believes that you cannot just treat the symptoms but instead treat with a whole body approach to figure out where the injury/pain could be originating. She utilizes a combination of manual hands on techniques and therapeutic exercises to return patients back to normal function. She also believes that daily exercise and proper nutrition are key aspects to overall health and wellness. Amber desires to continuously further her education in order to be the best physical therapist she can be for her patients and will jump at the opportunity to learn something new.

Along with spending time with her husband, family and friends, Amber enjoys hiking, camping, tennis, soccer, horseback riding and staying active within her church community.

At 4 years of age, Michael was diagnosed was Legg Calve Perthes, a genetic condition deforming the shape of his right hip. Having spent some of pre-K in a wheelchair and several years of physical therapy to aid with his standing and walking, he understands both the challenges and rewards of PT and is a firm believer in the impact and power of physical therapy.
