Dr. Jennifer Melancon, PT, DPT
Hi, my name is Dr. Jennifer Melancon, PT, DPT and “The Scar Lady”. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy since 2012.
I became interested in healthcare way back in the ninth grade when I became a student athletic trainer for my high school’s football team. I thrived in the role and enjoyed taking care of my athletes and learning about injury rehabilitation. I was a student athletic trainer in college and graduated with a BS in Exercise Science. I earned my DPT from The University of South Alabama and began my career in physical therapy in Abilene, TX in pediatrics.
Why scars? Well, they can impact our bodies, brains, emotions, and movement in massive ways. Many people do not yet know this information, and it can change lives. and enjoyed taking care of my athletes and learning about injury rehabilitation.

Over the years, I worked in many settings and am comfortable treating people across the entire lifespan. After a series of events, the Lord led me to start my own company in 2019 called Cedar Physical Therapy and Wellness.
It began as a mobile concierge physical therapy practice in the Dallas area. I quickly realized I wanted to specialize my practice in helping people with scars; these were the cases that lit my soul on fire and were fun for me. When a patient has a significant improvement in function after addressing their skin trauma, it is awesome!

I was able to help Sarah get out of years of chronic back pain by addressing scars from an old surgery and helping her brain communicate better with her muscles.
Sarah creates an experience that brings out each person’s absolute best for the camera. She was amazing to work with for my headshots and personal branding photography! She took the time to explore my business and created photo shoots that spoke to my goals. I was so comfortable behind her camera. Sarah has a gift for helping you present your most authentic self in front of the camera! I am so pleased with my photos and have had multiple sessions with Sarah.

From Sarah about Dr. Jennifer Melancon:
In the first fifteen minutes of talking with Dr. Jennifer Melancon I was in shock that she had wisdom that could help me with my chronic pain for over 10 years. I quickly learned that she would not only help me but literally change my life! She asked me a few simple questions that she pretty much asks anyone. She had answers that multiple doctors gave me no practical answers or help for over the years. I was just told I had to live with the pain. My back would lock up, I would be in pain just doing simple tasks around the house. It effected my sleep, my work, well my entire life. For over ten years I had to sit up in bed in pain to turn over. After Dr. Jennifer Melancon worked on my ab scars one time I was able to turn over in bed without sitting up first and without pain! I highly recommend working with her in-person or virtually if you have the opportunity! She also, has an amazing helpful book and online education around helping you heal your scars.
