More About Meredith
I have been exclusively treating hand to shoulder injuries since graduating from the University of Florida in 2002, with a degree in Occupational Therapy. I have been practicing in Boulder since 2007, and have a close rapport with prominent hand surgeons in the area.

Ergonomic Evaluation & Education
Education and recommendations to improve your work station, assisting in creating a more efficient and safe environment. Poor ergonomics can cause damage to delicate tendons, nerves and ligaments. Proper ergonomics also carries over to day to day activities which may be causing or contributing to your pain. One of the most important jobs I can do as an Occupational Therapist is to educate clients on the prevention of repetitive motion injuries. Offering onsite or remote services.
Whether you are near or far, you can still receive my therapy services. With tele therapy, you will receive an evaluation, instruction on self massage techniques as well as a customized exercise program. Ergonomic assessments may also be performed remotely.
I met with Meredith virtually because of Covid-19 and because I’m out of state. She identified the issue and gave me exercises that allowed my wrist to function THE NEXT DAY! I had been in pain for 4 weeks with reduced mobility and function. Why did I wait so long? It has been four days and while I still have a little pain, it’s getting better and better as I follow her recommendations!
Meredith is a miracle worker! You can put your trust in her vast knowledge and she will work with you to make sure you have the best recovery and results possible.
Kristine Isern Whiston
Meredith is such a knowledgeable and experienced professional in this field. She really has a passion for helping people and there is no one else I would want helping me rehab from injury or surgery.
Jamie Barrios Maloney
After working with 3 different PTs to no avail on my shoulder, elbow, and wrist, I had the opportunity to work with Meredith. She is truly a miracle worker. I finally began seeing results thanks to her skill and expertise in both hands-on manipulation/massage as well as the appropriate exercises she conservatively added. She even made a video of each exercise, demonstrating clearly and with good explanation so I could continue the exercises on my own. I will ONLY work with Meredith for upper extremity work moving forward – whether in person or via TeleTherapy.
Meredith is an amazing talented intuitive upper extremity therapist. She knows your muscles and attachments to your bones and I should know, I’ve seen her for recovery from four wrist surgeries. She uses all kinds of modalities including manual manipulation, guides you with thorough instruction of exercises at home, explaining in detail why you need to do the exercises. Talks to you intelligently but with clarity and cares about your recovery. Look no further! She’s the real deal.
Meredith is a wonderful therapist. I have struggled with pain from an old shoulder injury for almost a year now. She has helped me restore the strength I need to support the injured area which has in turn provided some much needed relief. Meredith is so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I’m so happy to be working with her.
I had the opportunity to shadow Meredith over some months. She is an excellent therapist, working with the patients in every aspect to help their pain. She is a caring and welcoming therapist, that I highly recommend!
