  • Natalie Farah, PT, DPT

    Doctor of Physical Therapy

    Natalie was surrounded by music and theater from a young age, beginning a dance career at the age of three. Natalie took an early interest in how the body moves and works and developed a passion to help others and found that physical therapy for the performing arts was the perfect field for her. She brings with her to Neurosport a unique perspective into what is involved physically in a show, and how to decrease a performer's risk of injury. Having experienced a few injuries herself, she understands how important it is to make sure your body is practicing the correct mechanics, in order to prevent a small injury from becoming a one that is career-threatening. In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, skiing, kayaking and dancing.
