Natalia's passion for treating patients stems from her drive to understand the patient as a whole: understanding not only the physical manifestations of their symptoms but understanding the Biopsychosocial aspects of what brings her patients into the clinic.

Natalia is an orthopedic and spine specialist, having earned her certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment (MDT) from the Mckenzie Institute in 2017. Her MDT training has served her patients immensely to assist with quicker recoveries and empower them through extensive education regarding their diagnosis and self-treatment. Throughout her career, Natalia has developed a special interest and passion for treatment of pelvic floor disorders in men and women including urinary/fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, and perinatal and postpartum recovery. She has received training from the Herman and Wallace Institute and is currently working towards a certification in this specialty as well. She has extensive experience treating in orthopedic and neurologic settings, including treatment of patients who suffer from various musculoskeletal conditions and vertigo/BPPV, dizziness, gait and balance impairments.
