Lauren received her Bachelor’s degree with a major in Exercise and Sport Science from Western Washington University and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from AT Still University. She has advanced education in pregnancy and post-partum care, manual therapy, and Strain Counter-strain. Strain Counter-strain is a gentle and non-traumatic technique utilizing passive positioning of muscles and joints towards positions of comfort. It is effective for those with acute injuries (MVA, sports injuries, ankle sprains) as well as chronic conditions (osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches). Lauren holds a special interest in treating patients through pregnancy and post-partum care, as well as treating patients with headaches or after motor vehicle accidents. In appointments, it is important for Lauren to educate the patient regarding his or her condition must be combined with manual techniques and other therapeutic interventions. In her spare time, you can find Lauren baking, reading, hiking, biking, spending time with her husband and two sons, or cheering on Seattle sports teams. Lauren also volunteers for fun runs raising money for causes, such as Head for the Cure or Jamieson Jones Foundation. To schedule with Lauren in Bothell, call 425-686-7485.
