Natalie works alongside the multi-disciplinary team at Spinal and Sports Care as a Chiropractor. Her key goal is to improve the health of patients and restore mobility and stability.
Natalie has been one of our female practitioners at Spinal and Sports Care since 2014. Whilst completing a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Master of Chiropractic at Macquarie University, she also worked as a qualified massage therapist with a keen interest on helping athletes perform and recover better, skills that she integrates into treatments today.
As a chiropractor, Natalie understands the necessity for the human body to move and function well for both work and leisure. Natalie treats a variety of patients, ranging from desk workers to elite athletes for problems ranging from head, shoulders, knees and toes.
Over the years, Natalie both watched and played in a multitude of sports which sparked an interest in the biomechanics needed to play each sport at an amateur or competitive level and keep the body conditioned. Throughout her postgraduate studies of an International Sports Chiropractic Certification, Natalie migrated from being on the sporting field herself, to becoming an integral part of the medical team of multiple sporting teams, from local clubs to representing teams from both NSW and Australia. In doing so, she has enriched her knowledge and practical experience alongside practitioners from all health care professionals. She has also completed her Level 1 Sports Trainer and Strength & Conditioning Coach Level 1 certifications.
Natalie also has a passion for rehabilitation and getting patients back on the sporting field or even back to their normal daily activities. Natalie has worked closely with National Premier League football teams since 2016 and has completed a FIFA diploma in Football Medicine. Natalie has also worked and travelled with National Indoor Cricket teams since 2018 and is involved with injury risk reduction programs in various sports with athletes from youth to masters. Natalie travelled with the Australian Indoor Cricket Master’s teams in 2019 to Cape Town, South Africa for the Indoor Cricket World Cup. She thoroughly enjoyed assisting players and support staff throughout a hectic schedule of training, games and recovery.
