About Me

Meredith Ehn, DO, DPT is a physiatrist in the Musculoskeletal Medicine group at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab with subspecialty training in sports medicine. She is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Her primary clinical focus is the non-surgical treatment of spine and musculoskeletal conditions. She performs interventional procedures of the lumbar spine and peripheral joints under fluoroscopy as well as of the extremities under ultrasound. She enjoys treating people of all ages, athletes and non-athletes alike.

Dr. Ehn has a particular interest in treatment of acute and chronic injuries in cyclists and skiers. She has provided medical coverage at the UCI Tour of Utah and American Criterium Cup Salt Lake City Criterium. She is a sports medicine consultant for US-based women’s professional cycling teams. During fellowship training, she had the unique experience of providing medical coverage at NCAA and World Cup skiing events as well as weekly coverage in the medical clinic at Snowbird. Prior to medical school, she had a rewarding 9-year career as an orthopedic and sports physical therapist, specializing in the rehabilitation of cycling and skiing related injuries.

Her research interests align closely with her clinical focus, specifically the epidemiology and prevention of acute and chronic injuries in athletes with a focus on skiers, cyclists, triathletes, and runners. Her current research includes injury epidemiology and prevention of injuries in youth mountain bike racing.
