The great news I want to share about Dr. Natalie is, thanks to her help the following is no longer true about me. For the past decade a large part of my identity has been- chronically injured athlete never able to return to unrestricted function; 7 surgeries and a multitude of other injuries and chronic conditions will do that to you (all within 28 years of life). I have seen more medical professionals than I can remember. Some have been a bust, some have helped a little, some have helped a lot, but none have been able to empower me to return to unrestricted sport and activity. Dr. Natalie possesses the professional expertise, caring, perspective, and ethics that was needed to empower me to return to unrestricted function. Not only am I someone who personally knows the medical community quite well, I also professionally know what separates the good from the great. As a movement performance and strength and conditioning coach, with a passion, knowledge base, and skill set for post-rehabilitative care, and one who specifically seeks out medical professionals to collaborate with, I hold a great perspective to speak intelligently about medical practitioners. Dr. Natalie understands the great importance of bridging the gap between rehabilitation (by insurance standards- which are sad at times) and return to sport and activity, not just return to activities of daily living without pain. She holds her practice to a higher standard. One very important way she has done this is by offering cash-based direct-access care. Dr. Natalie’s care and treatment are not shackled by the unfortunately low standards of insurance companies. Her treatment and care are founded upon great education, experience, and a commitment to continuing education without suffering from the restrictions of insurance. In addition, she holds teamwork in high regard, reaching out to and collaborating with high-quality strength and conditioning coaches to best serve her patients. Dr. Natalie is worthy of praise and worth investing financially in, she gives a good return on investment.
