Dr. Meredith H. Perny, PT, DPT, OCS


As a physical therapist in a high-volume clinic, Meredith saw patient after patient fall through the cracks of the system. Therapists were over booked and patients were underserved. Looking for a better – more balanced – option for both the patients and herself, Meredith formed Balance Physical Therapy in 2009. The mission of Balance Physical Therapy is to provide patients a truly patient centered experience which leaves them with a better understanding of how their body works and what it needs for long-term health. For providers, Balance Physical Therapy strives to provide an opportunity to develop their specialty area and build their individual reputation as an expert clinician in their field.  

In her practice, patients are treated in a one-on-one, private environment.  Leveraging multiple disciplines in an intensive, patient-focused way enables Meredith to address root causes and create sustainable, healthy results that are not possible in a high-volume clinic. Meredith likes to utilize resources from her diverse background as manual therapist, educator, athlete, yogi, and coach to create unique, effective programs that heal and empower her patients to maintain long-term health. 

Meredith believes that balance is important, not only in a physical therapy setting, but also in life. She has practiced yoga for over 20 years and is a lifetime horseback rider (although far less frequent now that she is raising 3 boys and running a growing business). She a passionate educator, and is actively engaged in the lives of her three wonderful boys and husband. Meredith encourages her patients to create a healthy balance between work, family, and recreation in their lives as well.
