Lauren Baloun, PT, DPT

General Physical Therapy, Physical & Occupational Therapy

Practices In: Shorewood
Patients Seen: All Ages

I enjoy treat­ing a wide vari­ety of diag­noses through­out the body, incor­po­rat­ing the patien­t’s treat­ment goals, and cre­at­ing an indi­vid­u­al­ized plan of care for each patient. Edu­cat­ing my patients on their con­di­tion, and the impor­tance of their home pro­gram and body mechan­ics is essen­tial to max­i­miz­ing treat­ment out­comes. What I find most grat­i­fy­ing about being a Phys­i­cal Ther­a­pist is help­ing improve patients’ qual­i­ty of life and func­tion­al mobility.

Personal Interests

I love to trav­el, espe­cial­ly inter­na­tion­al­ly. I enjoy hik­ing, yoga, doing the Hot Choco­late 5k every year, spend­ing qual­i­ty time with friends and fam­i­ly, and cheer­ing on the Cubs!
