Lauren Clemson, PT, DPTDr. Lauren Clemson grew up in Marlton, NJ. She was an athlete, playing soccer year-round, as well as softball and lacrosse. She played golf with her dad and brothers for fun and ended up playing competitively in college. Her first experience with physical therapy was watching with amazement the progress her dad made after receiving physical therapy for several months for a shoulder injury. It left quite an impression on her and opened her eyes to the profession. She volunteered at that clinic and quickly knew that this is what she wanted her future to be. She graduated from Misericordia University with a BA in Biology, minor in Chemistry, and then went on to grad school for her DPT. She has extra training in applied techniques of manual therapy, with a focus on treating common extremity dysfunctions through mobilization.

She also enjoys attending country concerts, completing DIY projects around her apartment, cooking, baking, and staying active. One of her current goals is to run a half marathon in the near future. PATIENT SUCCESS STORY “One of my favorite patient populations to treat are those who come in after total knee replacement. This can be a very challenging and uncomfortable recovery at times, so it is always nice to see the improvement after patients put in the hard work. This person in particular also had to have a manipulation under anesthesia after the TKA as her range of motion was not returning even with PT intervention. At times the patient would get discouraged by her recovery process, but was recently able to take a vacation to Ireland where she did not let her injury hold her back. She was able to do all of the sightseeing that she wanted to do. She has also become better and more independent in managing her own symptoms.”
