Elyse C. Cleveland, MD

About Dr. Cleveland

I specialize in physical therapy, focusing on enhancing function for individuals recovering from spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, strokes, and other conditions impacting mobility. I help patients manage muscle stiffness and pain using a diagnostic procedure, Electromyography (EMG), to evaluate muscle and nerve health. My dedicated care emphasizes a collaborative approach, promoting patient autonomy through education and lifestyle modifications to optimize function and independence.

My little something extra

I spent 2 years serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana, West Africa working with women and girl's advocacy groups, and working on water, health and sanitation projects. I have a passion for travel and have yet to meet a dog I don’t like.
