Parker Gregory is an Occupational Therapist and a Certified Hand Therapist. He graduated from the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS in 2014 and has practiced outpatient hand therapy ever since. His working career began in the Memphis, TN area for Southern Hand Center. Here, he was fortunate enough to learn from multiple veteran CHTs and saw various hand and upper extremity injuries/conditions. He was able to sit for and pass the board exam required to become a Certified Hand Therapist just three years after graduation. At this point, he was promoted to clinical director of the area. Parker is also certified in Impairment Ratings, Blood Flow Restriction, and Graston Technique. In 2019, Parker and his family moved closer to “home” to take a position with Crossroads Rehabilitation Services where he currently serves as clinical director in the Pontotoc location. Parker was among the first OTs in Mississippi to become certified in dry needling and uses it regularly in his practice. In addition to his work in the outpatient hand therapy setting, Parker co-founded The Upper Hand LLC in 2020. The Upper Hand seeks to do just that, giving students and therapists “the upper hand” when it comes to OT treatment through the large audiences gained via multiple social media platforms. His social media brand allowed him the opportunity to connect with Dr. Luke Bynum to begin the partnership with United Dry Needling Education. Aside from work, Parker resides in Tupelo, MS, and is happily married to a fellow OT. Together, they have two wonderful (and wild) boys. Along with spending time with his family, Parker enjoys attending church, traveling, and anything and everything involved with Ole Miss sports!
