Lauren Shute PT, DPT

After many bouts of sports related injuries as a younger athlete, I knew I wanted to be a Physical Therapist at a young age. Specifically, I knew I wanted to use my hands, as I realized the difference this made versus therapeutic exercise alone. I received my Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from University of North Florida in 2013 and then immediately went on to receive my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine in 2016. My passion for manual therapy awarded me the Paris and Patla award for excellence in manual therapy. 


After school, I received my certification in Astym therapy, have taken many Women’s Health and Pelvic Rehab specific courses, and am working towards my dry needling certification through MyoPain. I also hold my Level 1 and have been coaching functional fitness and CrossFit for the better half of the last 10 years.


The challenge: After working in traditional outpatient rehab, I have realized the limitations that come with insurance based therapy. The limit on time in office, number of visits, and types of treatment covered, don’t allow for optimal rehabilitation. I am committed to treating clients one-on-one with a focus in hands-on therapy with little to no limitations. We provide in-office, in-home, and virtual sessions so that no limitation is too big to overcome. 


My why: I am passionate about helping people be the best version of themselves through rehabilitative and preventative care. I want to help eliminate pain, improve strength, and overall quality of life. I want to help people remain active. I feel blessed to receive this gift from God of the use of my hands and feel it is my do-diligence to use it to the best of my ability.

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Certified Athletic Trainer

TPI Certified 

Being a former collegiate athlete, I found my passion for sports medicine/rehabilitation and sports performance. I received my Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training from Ithaca College in 2009 and went on to work at the Division I level at the University of Florida. I spent the year working on staff primarily with the men's tennis and men's basketball teams. I went on to pursue my doctorate in physical therapy at the University of North Florida and graduated in 2013. My passion for teaching and educating also led me to teach as an adjunct clinical professor at UNF in the DPT program for the past 6 years. 


I served 3 years as a coach/trainer at Trinity Fitness Ponte Vedra, earned my Titleist Performance Institute Level 2 Medical Provider Certification and also carry ASTYM and Cupping Certifications. 


The Challenge:  Having worked in the orthopedic and sports medicine realm for the past ~11 years, my eyes have been opened to the disadvantage and limitations that traditional physical therapy settings have. In a world where insurance providers dictate care, I have grown tired of seeing patients unable to achieve their goals due to roadblocks. I firmly believe that this life is worth living and enjoying, not just surviving.


My Why: I love people and I love Jesus. I am called to serve and care for others as the Scripture says in 1 Peter 5:2, "Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, watching over them -- not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve."


I also do what I do, with all of my heart, for the betterment of my beautiful wife (Meagan) and two children (Ada and Shepard).
