Dr. Lauren Macera, PT, DPT, has worked with Performance Physical Therapy since 2015 and is now the clinic director and a physical therapist at our Attleboro location. After earning her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at URI, she went on to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy there as well. While attending URI, she participated in their URI broadening experience and traveled to Guatemala twice to help rehabilitate adults and children with various neurological disabilities.
Since graduating, Dr. Macera has earned a manual therapy certification from Evidence in Motion and has been certified in trigger point dry needling. She has expertise in orthopedics, post-surgical rehabilitation, sports injuries, balance disorders, and injury prevention, as well as in working with pediatric patients.
When she’s not in the clinic, you might find her running, relaxing by the beach, playing with her dog, hiking, or listening to music. She also serves on the board of the Lead the Way program and has volunteered with events throughout her community, including numerous 5k races.
She reminds patients to move, stay hydrated, and eat well. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” she says.
