Shelley Bragelman has over 25 years of experience in the Physical Therapy field. She graduated from the University of Colorado in 1991 and moved back to Minnesota where she began working at the St. Cloud Hospital for about a year before transitioning to a traveling therapist position for the next 6 years.

In 1998 Shelley started working for FirstLight.  She treats a wide variety of conditions and has a passion for treating the lower back, and the vestibular system including balance disorders, concussions and dizziness. Other areas of expertise include foot and ankle conditions (including casting for custom foot orthotics), neck pain, and problems of the hip and knee.

Outside of work she enjoys photography, traveling, working with international students attending St. Cloud State, and missionary work.

She’s always been involved in personal physical fitness which helps her to relate to her patients and their therapy needs.  Some of her interests over the years have been: running marathons, hiking, backpacking, cycling, whitewater kayaking, and rock climbing.
