Erin Buenger, PT, DPT earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Marquette University in 2011. She has been practicing for over 10 years in outpatient orthopedics.
Erin became a Schroth Certified Physical Therapist for the treatment of scoliosis in March 2018 and completed her advanced certification June 2021. Her passion is working with scoliosis clients across the lifespan. Due to this, she also uses these techniques in optimally treating patients with general postural dysfunctions.
Erin has focused additional continuing education on manual therapy for low back pain and running rehabilitation. Erin previously worked closely with several podiatrists in the suburbs and excels in working with injuries below the knee, as well as running/walking gait analysis and sports rehabilitation. One of her strengths is looking at the whole individual across all treatment disciplines in order to achieve optimal outcomes.
Outside of the clinic, Erin enjoys spending most of her time with her husband, two boys and goldendoodle. She loves traveling to Hawaii, running, bootcamp classes, yoga, downhill skiing and water skiing. She sees patients on Thursdays.
