Feature Friday- Get to Know Josh Meyers, PT, DPT, OCS of Edgebrook Physical Therapy

Josh Meyers, PT, DPT, OCSThis week we are happy to feature Josh Meyers, PT, DPT, OCS who oversees several clinics in our network and will be the Clinic Director of our new Edgebrook Physical Therapy location. We sat down this week with Josh to learn a little more about him.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.

Josh Meyers, PT, DPT, OCS is a physical therapist and directs several clinics that are a part of the Orthopedic and Sports Therapy Institute.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from Northern Illinois University in 1999 and completed my Doctorate degree in physical therapy at Des Moines University in 2010.

I reside in Rockford, Illinois with my wife and three children.

Do you have any upcoming personal or professional milestones?

Yes, professional. In January, I will be opening Edgebrook Physical Therapy in the Shops of Edgebrook in Rockford. This will be OSTI’s 10th clinic and the culmination of almost a year of planning and design. I’m excited to be serve the Rockford community in which I live and providing our community a personal, quality physical therapy experience close to home.

What inspires you to do what you do?

The ability to play a part in a patient’s rehabilitation, help them accomplish their goals, and see them return to doing the things they enjoy. And when patients have great attitudes and are engaged in the process, it makes it that much better.

What do you enjoy doing in your fun?

I have three wonderful children that have become “special interests” in my life. Seeing them grow and challenging them to learn has been a fun experience as a dad. In my free time (i.e. before 6:00 a.m.) I like to run or bike to stay fit, and spend some time playing my guitar.

What is something that people are surprised to learn about you?

I like to fix things. I’m happy with a tool in my hand or a project sitting in front of me. Give me wall to patch, light to install, or something to assemble and I’m happy.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I can’t say that I ever had an answer for that one. I always knew that I liked interacting with people and I liked to fix things. When you combine the two, you get a physical therapist. When it came time to choose a career, physical therapy looked like fun and came naturally to me. 15 years later, I can say that I have learned a lot and still enjoy what I do every day.

What is your motto in life?

Treat others how you would want to be treated and leave things better off than when you found them.
