Dr. Lauren Vernese
Dr. Vernese is a Sports Medicine Physician with a background in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Whether seeking a Sports doctor to decrease pain while walking around the block, or optimizing function to summit Mount Rainier, Dr. Vernese teams with each patient until their goals are met. She focuses on educating patients on their injury and empowering them to take an active role in enhancing their health and minimizing risk of future injury. From her foundations in Osteopathy, she believes that the body has a natural tendency toward self-healing. Sometimes the body needs assistance to reach this healthy state, and she can use her osteopathic manual therapy, or procedural ultrasound skills, to help nudge the body in the right direction.�Dr. Vernese was a Fellow at Swedish Spine, Sports & Musculoskeletal Medicine (SSSMM) and will begin seeing patients at the SSSMM Bellevue and Renton locations in September 2019.
