Ned Zerwic, DPT, PT

Why Am I a Physical Therapist?
After going through rehab for my knee as a patient and then running a “Personal Record Best” later that season, I became enamored with the power of physical therapy. I was and still am amazed at the human body, it’s complexity and ability to recover and rehabilitate. I knew early on that I wanted to work with people. What better way to combine my fascination with the human body as well as the human spirit and it’s ability to fight, recover and rehabilitate? It is my mission to partner with patients by educating and putting their body in the optimal position to rehabilitate from injury to return to previous activities, interests and sports in order to live life to the fullest!
Continuing Education Commitment
I plan to pursue certification in Dry Needling and take courses on nerve flossing and myofascial release to further my skill set at relieving pain and restoring function. I plan to study and sit for a board exam to become an Orthopedic Certified Specialist.
Professional and Community Activities
As an Eagle Scout, I got an early introduction into the beauty of wilderness and the outdoors. I am an enthusiastic about backpacking, hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, rock climbing, etc. I run marathons for charity to benefit some friends of mine that are part of a religious order serving the poor in a rough neighborhood on the west side of my hometown of Chicago. I am an active member of my local church community and recently joined the serving the poor ministry.

Meaghan O’Donnell, PT, DPT

Why am I a Physical Therapist?
I always wanted to be a teacher. Then in high school I injured myself ski racing and had to go to PT for my calf. While at PT I realized it involved a lot of teaching and loved going to my PT sessions every week. The rest is history.  I truly do love my job and get excited to go to work everyday and help people. My goal is that all of my patients achieve their full potential.

Continuing Education Commitment
I will be pursuing my certificate in dry needling. I also have experience in pediatrics and want to continue learning neuro re-ed techniques to combine my pediatric experience to help my adult patients.

Professional and Community Activities
I received my doctorate in physical therapy at Ithaca College. My professional career started with a position treating adult ortho injuries half the day and pediatric neurological disorders and orthopedic injuries the other half of the day. After working in the outpatient setting for 2 years I worked full time in pediatrics in an inner city school district while also working nights at an outpatient clinic. Through this experience I realized that my passion lies in helping patients in the outpatient world. I love treating pediatric ortho injuries, chronic back pain, and all other orthopedic diagnosis. I use a lot of pain science and neuro re-education techniques in my sessions. I look forward to helping the people of Colorado return to their active lifestyles and enjoy life!

My biggest passion in life is skiing and that is what brought me to Colorado from Massachusetts. I was a ski racer through college then coached collegiate skiing. I am a PSIA level 1 ski instructor and taught in New Hampshire for 3 winters as well. When I can’t ski I like to go to concerts, hike, bike, and play in a kickball league in Denver.
