Chelsea Rapin is a physical therapist at the University of Vermont Medical Center. She specializes in orthopedics, spine rehabilitation and sports rehabilitation. She treats patients who are post-operative and patients with musculoskeletal pain, total joint replacement, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is the most common cause of vertigo. She uses techniques such as manual therapy and taping to help her patients heal.
Chelsea’s research interests lie in total joint functional outcomes and treatment of lower back pain.
Chelsea actively listens to her patients’ concerns so that they can together create goals that will improve overall quality of life. She makes it a priority to answer her patient’s questions and educates them, while promoting self-confidence so they can eventually continue with their exercises independently at home.
