Dr. Jeff Meadows, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT
Jeff first took an interest in physical therapy in college when he observed a patient walk to her car after being told that she would always have to use a wheelchair. He has been a physical therapist since 2006 when he graduated from Western Carolina.
Jeff completed a post-graduate doctorate in physical therapy and is a board-certified orthopedic specialist. He completed a three-year commitment to greater outcomes by becoming a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists. This training further bolstered his practice with a focus on chronic/ spinal pain, headaches, TMJ, athletes and other complex conditions. His most recent certification is in BPPV, vestibular and balance disorders.
He loves teaching or learning something new. Outside of work, Jeff enjoys running, cycling, traveling, camping, and hiking with his family.
Dr. Annie Barnes, DPT, OCS
Annie Barnes was born and raised in coastal Georgia. She received her degree in Exercise Science from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs), then completed her Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Armstrong State University in the heart of Savannah.
Soon after graduation, she and her partner Tyler - an Army Apache pilot - were stationed in rural Alabama, where she finished her orthopedic boards and speciality certification while working in her first manual-therapy focused clinic, working with a variety of orthopedic and sports medicine issues. Her partner separated from the US Army in 2021, and they left Alabama to set up shop here in Asheville.
After years of treating patients in a rural area with limited resources and then becoming a mother herself, Annie decided to seek advanced training in Women’s and Pelvic Health. She loves working with people of all ages with pelvic health pain or dysfunction, as well as educating anyone who will listen about the importance of caring for your pelvic floor as an active, healthy adult, pre and postnatal care for mothers, and sexual health.
Annie treats each client as an individual, taking a deep dive into their lifestyle, hobbies, and self-care strategies in order to personalize their plan. Through an approach centered around world-class education, hands-on manual therapy, and targeted exercise, Annie helps clients get moving and stay moving while promoting a healthier mind, body and spirit.
Annie is a life-long runner, now training for a marathon even while raising two young children here in the mountains - even if that means more miles on the treadmill (for now). She loves traveling with her husband, exploring the outdoors with her four and two-legged family, and enjoying all the amazing food, art, and beauty Western North Carolina has to offer.
