Lauren Hogan


Lauren graduated from Marquette University, obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training, followed by a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and later completed residency and fellowship training in orthopedic manual physical therapy. In addition to treating her caseload, she teaches the orthopedic musculoskeletal curriculum to physical therapy students at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.

Lauren sees a wide range of patients with different injuries and conditions. She is skilled at working with the full spectrum of active and athletic individuals, as well as specializing in helping patients with headaches, and post-concussive syndrome. Her patients benefit greatly from her spending time listening to their story along with a comprehensive evaluation to illuminate a treatment plan that will address the underlying cause of their symptoms. Lauren is able to incorporate a wide range of treatment options including manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization and manipulation, trigger point dry needling, Graston Technique, exercise, and more.

"I am passionate about what I do. Maybe too passionate. But how could I not be? I spend my days helping people get back to doing what they love to do."


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

“I was skeptical about doing PT again because my first experience (at another place) was not that great. They just basically sent you into the workout area and told me to do my exercises. With the amount of pain that I was having in my back, I was willing to try anything, even if it meant PT again. My doctor’s office referred me and I met Lauren. She is an amazing physical therapist who spends the whole hour one on one with me and every week I can’t wait to come in and see her. Lauren is very knowledgeable, explains everything very well, and is extremely nice and personable to boot! I feel like I hit the jackpot with having Lauren as my physical therapist and I have even told my friends that if that want to give PT another try, they need to go and see Lauren.”


“Was very pleased with the therapy provided by Lauren Hogan. Excellent. Not only did she address my specific pain but provided me with a program of exercises and information that I’ll be able to continue and build upon to improve my health, and to address as well as hopefully avoid other physical issues. My visits were both productive and enjoyable...This was my first experience with PT and it was a very good one. Thank you.”


“Outstanding! Lauren has given me some excellent exercises and has given me treatments that are very effective in aiding my healing. She is extremely knowledgeable and a very caring professional.”


"Lauren is an exceptional PT, always trying new exercises for my back. Listens, truly cares."


“I have been very impressed with the work I’ve done with Lauren. I’ve done physical therapy at several places over the years, in hospital and outpatient, and I can honestly say this is the best, and nicest, experience I have had. More important,I have learned more about what I need to do and why than previously, and am seeing results. I feel accepted and not judged, encouraged and hopeful each time I leave a session. It’s been a great experience.”


“It was great. My therapist did some massage and dry needling and gave me some helpful exercises. She explained my anatomy and how the exercise works which is very helpful. I felt so much better, pain wise, when I left. Lauren is awesome. I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else for therapy.”


I recently completed a round of PT with Lauren after two back surgeries over the winter. I am extremely grateful to Lauren for easing me back into exercise with a well rounded and easy to follow approach. Lauren helped me regain lost mobility in my right leg and helped to strengthen my core after six months of no activity. She is an excellent communicator, and always answered any questions I had either in person or via email. After every session, she sent me home with detailed instructions and workout plans so I could continue my progress outside of her office. Very happy my surgeon's office referred me to Body Mechanics, and extremely happy with how much help Lauren gave me. Feeling like the surgeries never happened! Thank you, Lauren!!!
