Chelsea grew up on a horse farm which prepared her perfectly for lifting heavy things and understanding the importance of physical activity, caring for others, and mental focus. As a world caliber equestrian, She worked her way to several world championship titles. Chelsea successfully completed the Kinesiology program, with highest honors, graduating with a degree in Exercise Science and a Nutrition minor from URI. Throughout college she helped young riders achieve their goals as an instructor with emphasis on strength and fitness. She began her graduate studies at Boston University, focusing on movement, injury and the brain. She completed the rigorous program at the top of her class. Chelsea spent six months in Salt lake City at The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital. Where she worked with some of the countries best orthopedic surgeons and athletes, including the men’s Olympic Speed Skating team. She left Utah determined to bring back what she had learned to her home state of Rhode Island. Soon after arriving to Rhode Island, she gave birth to her son, Mason and later she would welcome her daughter, Avery. The Birth of her children changed her life on many levels. The young doctor/mother found herself with a debilitating herniated disc that compromised the use of her right foot as well as her ability to stand or walk. Chelsea chose to use movement, nutrition and awareness to recover. She was able to rehab herself without drugs or surgery. This facilitated her understanding of the mechanics of back pain. During this time, she also realized the lack of support for mothers who have had c-sections. The experience has given Chelsea a sensitivity in dealing with her patients, that she has become known for. Chelsea has learned that practices in traditional Physical Therapy clinics do not offer real, lasting healing. She did not feel right treating patients in that setting knowing that she had more to offer. Dr. Chelsea Noel has a firm belief in the power of regular movement, smart nutrition, recovery and community. Optimal conditions to thrive can be achieved through a consistent program focused on creating an environment that the brain and body can understand. She left traditional practices and now offers her community real lasting solutions from a local gym in her hometown of Portsmouth, RI.
