Lauren Shute PT, DPT, CMTPT/DN
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.
