to helping you reach your total health and wellness goals.
Meghan has worked in the field of outpatient physical therapy for over fifteen years, and she has built a reputation as a personable and knowledgeable physical therapist who works to establish trusting and lasting relationships with her patients. She is a skilled manual therapist who stresses postural and activity modification as well as overall fitness. She is a former ballet dancer, athlete and coach with her own history of orthopaedic injuries, which led her to the field of physical therapy. She attended Duquesne University where she earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Health Sciences and a Master of Physical Therapy. After graduation she took a job at Healthsouth in Phoenix, AZ, where she had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients, from high-end athletes to the elderly, and she eventually served as Clinical Director for her facility. She furthered her experience in Sports Medicine with a position at Physiotherapy Associates in Tempe, AZ, at their SPORT clinic. Here she had treated and had exposure to athletes such as major league baseball players, professional cyclists, college soccer players, and high school lacrosse standouts, to name a few.
She eventually left Phoenix for sunny Santa Monica, CA, where she took a position at The Cypress Center. Owned by a close friend and former colleague, The Cypress Center is a small private practice in Pacific Palisades that specializes in seeing one patient an hour and using Pilates and Yoga as part of treatment. She found that patients responded much more favorably to one-on-one care and that she thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere that this clinic provided. While there she studied yoga and achieved her assessment-based certificate in Pilates through Body Arts and Science International, a world-recognized leader in the Pilates community. She furthered her clinical education with manual training in the Maitland-Australian technique and also achieved her Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist certification through the APTA. Most recently she became a registered yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance.
Meghan lives in Center City with her husband, Scott, and young son, Hudson. They look forward to introducing Hudson to all of the things they enjoy in the city – trying out new restaurants, listening to live music and taking in the many events Philadelphia has to offer. Meghan stays active with yoga and Pilates, and keeps promising herself she will get back to running one of these days soon.
