Kind Words

"I've struggled with muscle pain on and off for a few years. Natalie has been my saving grace! Recently, I was in a lot of pain, but worse, my sore/tight IT band was slowing me down, and I really missed my active life. I was willing to try anything-even dry needling (which is saying a lot because I'm deathly afraid of needles). Natalie was so patient and understanding through my treatment. I'm so grateful! Less than a week later, and I'm happy to report my leg hasn't felt this great in a long time! I highly recommend Natalie. She is top notch and passionate about what she does - but more importantly, she's committed to the health and well-being of her patients!" - L.G.

I appreciate that you never settle for the level of training that you are at. You are already talented, but you don’t stop there because it’s comfortable. Some people get to a point and they don’t want to keep learning. You are always exploring new areas of health. - C.B.

"Natalie is truly outstanding!!! Words cannot express how appreciative I am to have her as my PT. Other PTs were unable to help. She has helped me in many ways with the issues I've had in different parts of my body. I drive an hour to see her and it's so worth it!" - K.V.

Thank you so much for everything. You inspire me and I can tell you are making a difference in countless lives every day. - I.D.

Thank you! I really value your opinion. You are the only one at this point that understands what's wrong. - L.S.

"After the birth of my daughter, I was left with a second degree perineal tear. The tear "healed" but I still experienced pain in the area and sex was too painful to enjoy. My OB clinic had no helpful advice for me, and I was left feeling discouraged. Thankfully, I found Natalie 13 weeks postpartum. She helped me understand that my problem was common and easily treated with therapy. After three sessions with Natalie, I was healed completely and no longer had pain. Natalie provides therapies that are so needed but that are not always offered by other institutions. She is passionate about her work and truly cares for you as a patient. It would be hard to find another practitioner as talented and sincere as Natalie." - A.M.

"Finally a solution to get to the root of my headaches. Natalie has helped me with headaches I have dealt with for years. The therapy along with sound advice is invaluable. It is worth every penny and so much more!" - J.B.

"I'm so thankful for all Natalie did to help me. She played a major role in helping me get my life back. In countless ways she gave me tools, knowledge and direction to get me stronger and reduce my pain. Natalie wore many, many hats during my appointments which I'm very grateful for. I appreciate her honesty and for challenging and encouraging me. Having her as my physical therapist has been an answer to my and others' prayers." - T.D.

Laura - As my case with you must be closed I thought of sending you a little note to let you know how I'm doing.

I practice my exercises daily and it is paying off, as I can see that I'm regaining a good range of motion and some strength, provided that I am consistent, patient and gentle with my body.

 

I am amazed to see how it is totally possible to get better from injuries through physical therapy and Laura, I cannot thank you enough for, once again, bringing me back to feeling good, to being able to use my right elbow I injured December 2017 and my left shoulder I injured last November. I promise you that I will keep up the good work.

 

Not only are you excellent at what you do, but you have that kindness and compassion that was to me (and no doubt for others), a big part of my recovery, since we know the mind is so powerful over the body. Although I am so happy to be better, I can sincerely say that I will miss my visits to you, as you have made me feel good in many ways.

 

Thank you and wishing you all the best on your path ahead! - I.D.

"I struggled with constant moderate to severe lower back pain sustained from a fitness injury around 2 years ago. I tried several different chiropractors with no relief, sometimes I felt even WORSE after my chiropractor visits. Natalie listened to my complaint fully, explained my diagnosis, talked me through treatment, and gave me proper rehabilitation exercises for long term maintenance. She is the best of the best, can't thank you enough for bringing me back to 100%." - B.C.

"When my friend suggested trying pelvic floor physical therapy with Natalie, I blew her off at first. However, she persuaded me that she was not like most PTs. I had tried PT for the same condition 3 years prior and had given up hope. Natalie took the time to listen to my story and made me realize that this was not just in my head, and I didn't have to live with this pain. She helped me with the various issues she found, and over the course of treatment with her, I finally found relief and could get back to enjoying my life again. Natalie is truly talented at what she does. I am forever grateful." - K.B.

"I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Natalie! I love her no-nonsense attitude when I needed it. I always came in feeling blah and left feeling totally uplifted mentally and physically. She has a great personality and a kind heart. Thanks for the laughs, her sense of humor was infectious! She has had a great impact on many and in more ways than you can imagine. I'm glad God crossed our paths! Thanks for everything!" - S.V.

"Natalie was so helpful and knowledgeable. Loved her bubbly personality. She really explained my care and follow up. I recommend her for your PT needs." - D.H.

I have no doubt that my PT, Laura, was helpful to have in advance of this procedure (cystoscopy to diagnose I.C.). I was doing my exercises in the pre-op room! To not have shooting pain compounding my recovery was a blessing. So far, so good, but I am keeping your number forever! Always open to your thoughts and suggestions! - J.D.

"I have been a Massage Therapist and Cranio Sacral Therapist for the past 21 years. The debilitating pain in my lower back was interfering with my work and yoga practice. I am still a work in progress, as this has been an untreated issue for way too many years. Natalie is smart, efficient, thorough, and is getting to the root of the problem. I am a big fan of the exquisite and effective dry needling technique! Referred by a friend, I cannot stop spreading the word to others!" - J.Y.

"It's been a journey to say the least, but I'm so thankful to Natalie for leading the way for me. I never would have thought I would be walking as well as I am again. I attribute most of my recovery to Natalie's skill, encouragement and continued positive outlook (even when I couldn't even imagine a limp free walk). I'll miss our weekly visits! Natalie is one very talented healer!" - C.A.

"I feel like Natalie has given me back my arm! I think she is a remarkable healer because she combines a marvelous warmth and real attention to the human being she helps with a wonderful curiosity and drive for more knowledge, more things to try, more techniques to learn. I am so deeply grateful to Natalie for her steadfast help." - S.G.

I did want to say that I truly appreciate everything you did for me. I was very impressed with your knowledge of the subject and care you provided. I enjoyed learning more about the anatomy of the situation while being able to discuss my feelings. Like I mentioned before, the physical therapy did help, but I also think there was some mental therapy there that provided a platform for me to let it all out. I appreciate the several ideas you had for me to implement into my daily routine. - J.S.

"Dr. Marshall redefines what it means to be a physical therapist. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. She provides not only a physical game plan for overcoming injuries but also a mental game plan. Whenever I enter a session of physical therapy beat down, depressed, thinking I'll never get back to 100%, I usually leave feeling invincible and pain free. Her vast knowledge and desire to continue learning new techniques, makes me feel like she is dedicated to the cause of better health and recovery and I am receiving the best care possible. Any recommendations I give out will be pointed directly to your establishment." - C.J.

"I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about the wonderful help I received from Natalie Marshall when I had my recent back problems. I had extreme pain from a vertebrae adjacent to three vertebrae I had fused about 8 years ago. Natalie was the fourth person I worked with in an attempt to relieve the pain I had. After eight sessions, I was free of pain and off my crutch. I appreciate the help I received and wanted you to know." - G.R.

"Over the past dozen or so years, I have had multiple issues that have required physical therapy to help with pain, correct imbalances, and regain strength and function. Recently, I had several issues occur simultaneously and was literally at the end of my rope. My doctor referred me to Natalie, but I was skeptical as I have worked with multiple therapists over the years with minimal success. But, I had nothing to lose, so I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I came to Natalie. She is by far the best physical therapist I have ever worked with. Her knowledge, communication skills, patience, and kindness are exemplary. I truly believe that without her assistance, I never would have achieved the level of physical (and mental) recovery that I did. I have referred several acquaintances who could benefit from Natalie's help already and will continue to do so. My heartfelt thanks to Natalie." - M.M.

"I just wanted to say thank you to Natalie for all she did for me. Her friendly professional attitude motivated me to work hard. She gave me a lot of tips and exercises that I continue to use every day. She is a great health care provider and friend. Natalie taught me more about good health than anyone else in the past 45 years. I really enjoyed working with her." - J.E.

"During my recent (and first) pregnancy, I was experiencing quite a bit of pain in my pubic bone and low back/hip. My OB recommended that I rest, but that's just not an option for me. Luckily, a friend of mine recommended that I see Natalie. She quickly diagnosed the problem and had me feeling better within a few weeks. Natalie also recommended perineal prep to reduce the risk of tearing during delivery. I never realized the importance of this before she explained it to me. I am happy to report that I had a successful vaginal delivery and didn't tear! I'm so grateful to Natalie for her care and passion for pregnant women. I will certainly be recommending her to all my friends!" - E.S.

"Many thanks to Natalie for her healing powers as it relates to my back and neck. Her level of job proficiency is only surpassed by her level of kindness." - R.B.

"Dr. Natalie Marshall quickly diagnosed my situation with a thorough examination, hands on therapy techniques, and then prescribed specific exercises to treat it. Within a couple of weeks, the pain entirely disappeared. Equally important, she assessed my general physical state, including my posture and core strength, and prescribed additional exercises to improve these aspects. The exercises she gave me are really improving my physical condition, and I intend to continue them. Although I hope that I do not have occasion to use her services again, I would readily do so if needed. Dr. Marshall was very pleasant, helpful, and responsive to my physical situation. I appreciate the personal attention she gave me." - J.M.

"Natalie is awesome. Yesterday after suffering a miserable headache for a week, Natalie helped diminish it to a tolerable level and it's even less today...barely noticeable!" - F.F.

"Dry needling with manual therapy has been amazing for me! Having been to PT for months prior and still not having all my range of motion back, I tried Natalie. She knows what she is doing and provided much needed relief!" - K.L.

"I received exceptional care following an injury. In all my years as a patient, no one has taught me more about overall good health practices than Natalie. I learned how to manage my pain not only through exercise, but also through using relaxation techniques. Natalie's positive attitude, professionalism, friendliness and excellent listening skills allowed her to create a rehabilitation program based on my personal needs. I always felt that she had my best interest at heart, which helped me leave each therapy session feeling positive and motivated. I commend Natalie for giving me such exceptional health care!" - M.H.
