Natalie Ormond, PT, DPT

Natalie received her combination degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy and Bachelor of Health Science at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, NY in May 2010. She has been privileged to work in several areas of the field including inpatient, inpatient rehab for total hip and knee replacements, home health and PRN for SNF, neuro-inpatient and outpatient facilities in New York and Colorado. This wide variety has given Natalie a greater appreciation of the depth and breadth that physical therapists provide for society as a whole. She is level 1 certified to do Functional Dry Needling through Kinetacore since 2018. Natalie is interested in being a consultant to assist patients in recognizing their own body mechanics and becoming more body aware while they heal through exercise and some manual techniques. She is interested in assisting patients with healing so they can return to their preferred activities that bring them joy! When Natalie is not working, she loves to spend time with her husband and children or pursuing rowing in Master’s regattas around the country.
