Brent Bode


Brent graduated with his Masters of Physical Therapy from UW-Madison in 2007, after earning his bachelor's degree in physiology from Marquette University. He completed a one year orthopedic residency training program through the Institute of Physical Art in Functional Manual Therapy under the mentorship of Andy Kerk and in 2013 he successfully completed the rigorous certification process as a Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT). He is also board certified in orthopedic physical therapy from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (OCS).

Brent is a strong advocate for providing one-on-one personalized care that fits perfectly into the Body Mechanics treatment model. He serves his patients well as they benefit from his positive attitude combined with his manual therapy skills and dedicated knowledge of the most current physical therapy research. His advanced training in manual therapy and prescriptive exercise is effective with all types of athletic injuries, and other musculoskeletal dysfunction. Brent is the son of a local PGA golf professional and an avid golfer himself who specializes in treating individuals with golf-related injuries, or those who just want to maximize their physical potential to improve their games. Brent also has a unique history of treating individuals on-site at their industrial work places, as well as providing and implementing ergonomic and prevention programs to both management and employees.

“I’m energized by helping someone in need by using my knowledge to educate them about their bodies and my skills to help them feel and move better.”


Nearly all of Body Mechanics' patients have been referred to us by friends, family and colleagues.

I came to Brent at Body Mechanics after exhausting many physical therapists in the greater Milwaukee area.  Brent not only has extensive knowledge base, but his attributes as a compassionate and creative individual allow him to be more than just an acquaintance.  Brent was able to adapt and approach my issues better than any other physical therapist I have encountered.  I feel very fortunate have met Brent in regard to my own personal success.  My body has progressed with his guidance.  With my many surgeries I attribute my success to Brent in regard to my ability to participate in sports and extracurricular activity.  I have and will continue to refer clients to him.

My personal trainer referred me to Brent Bode of Body Mechanics to help me correct a few of the consequences of nearly 35 years sitting at a desk.  Within a few short weeks, Brent had helped me open my chest, straighten my shoulders and increase mobility in my shoulders and shoulder blades.  That made my personal trainer happy.  More importantly, it made a dramatic improvement in my performance as a horseback rider, my real passion.  I’ve recommended Brent to several friends and will continue to recommend him to anyone who will listen.  I wouldn’t have made as much progress as I have without him.

I had a bulging disc in my back and tried many different remedies. I was giving up hope. I had decided to go for the surgery but a PT faculty member at Carroll suggested I try Body Mechanics.  I decided to try it as my last alternative. My bar was set low because nothing had worked. I met with Brent and immediately felt better. He started by taking the time to explain what was wrong with me (no one had done that) and talked about a course of action. Brent worked with me for several months and explained each and every step along the way.  He has changed my life.  I thought I was going to need surgery and be someone who would have to be sedentary for the rest of my life. Instead, I am moving, running four to five times a week and loving it!
