Orthology is so happy to welcome Lauren Wright to the team. She’s clearly one of those people that gets it. She’s a confident person, and that’s a great benefit to her patients. You just feel better when your caregiver is sure-handed, clear and focused about what they’re doing.
She’s a versatile, talented athlete—and a determined, successful practitioner. Not only is she a kickboxer, but she’s also a Certified Tennis Performance Specialist.
Lauren graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy. An experienced provider of real depth, she spent four years working with Division 1 athletes and getting them back into action. Treating elite performers is a profound challenge in physical therapy. It requires a very special practitioner to guide such high-achievers through the recovery process.
She also has several years of working in Pediatric Physical Therapy, a particularly laudable specialty. It provides proven, one-on-one care for children with a wide range of conditions, including developmental and neuromuscular. It’s critical for kids to be able to participate in peer activities, and an empathetic caregiver like Lauren is a great guide for a child trying to navigate their way forward in life.
And speaking of peers, Lauren is inspired like most of her fellow caregivers to help others. It’s that “empathy thing” again! Being part of a patient’s journey of recovery and return to function is what energizes her. Lauren’s mission is keeping patients active so that they can enjoy a lifetime of pain-free good health. It’s in her DNA and she finds it truly rewarding.
While a PT’s focus is mostly on the physical, they understand that treatment is also a mental and emotional process. Most therapists agree that there’s no greater feeling than seeing a patient back to doing what they love, filled with optimism. Lauren gets it.
