Our Services Wellness & Rehabilitation Services:
NATAL is a multifaceted, holistic healthcare facility that focuses on treating and preventing musculoskeletal problems through Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, Pilates and Personal Training. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and high quality care.
1. Physical Therapy & Rehab Services:
All NATAL physical therapists have advanced training, deep clinical experience and a compassionate approach to healthcare. We see our physical therapy patients one at a time — therapists do not divide their time among patients, which is common at many other facilities. Each time you come, you’ll see the same physical therapist and form a close working relationship with him or her. A comprehensive evaluation allows your physical therapist to determine the root cause of your condition — we don’t just treat symptoms. Our therapists take ample time with each patient, helping ensure that our rehabilitation services help you recover — even if you’ve had little success with other providers.
Our hands-on approach begins with a comprehensive examination, evaluation, and diagnosis. We collaborate with the patient to include his/her needs for rehabilitation therapy and develop an appropriate plan of care to treat the identified problems.

2. NATAL’s Exclusive Revolutionary OriGENE Back Revival System
The OriGENE Lower Back Revival System is a concept recently developed by the Dutch sports doctor Frank Bertina. This new method enables a very much concentrated functional treatment of the back. OriGENE helps in restoring and optimizing the functions of the moving spinal column. While many treatments focus on fighting the symptoms of lower back pain, OriGENE focuses on the causes of the problems.
This functional improvement of the back takes place in a very efficient way through exercises given by a certified physiotherapist or doctor, who is specifically trained and certified by OriGENE. The treatment is given on an entirely new revolutionary treatment machine on the basis of treatment protocols developed by OriGENE.
We provide a high-impact assessment followed by a personalized back revival & wellness program based on your needs.

5. Wellness Programs
We can develop both personal wellness programs and corporate wellness programs.
At NATAL we believe that preventing problems is as important as treating them. We offer two types of wellness programs. The first is a personal wellness program that consists of evaluating a client’s flexibility, strength, posture, and workout routine, then developing a plan that will allow the client to optimize results and minimize their risk of injury or dysfunction.
The second is a corporate wellness program. These are quite varied depending on the need and wants of the company. They can be as simple as teaching a few preventative classes, like ergonomics or proper lifting techniques. Or we can develop an individual wellness program for each employee. This might focus on quitting smoking, nutritional analysis, exercise recommendations, postural analysis, ergonomics, or other factors, depending on the individual’s needs.
We also offer ergonomic workstation evaluation, where we come on site and consult on proper workstation set up in order to decrease the incidence of work-related injuries.
Our goal in developing a wellness plan is to create a unique plan for each individual or corporation. We do not use a “cookie cutter” approach that forces everyone to fit a particular model. It is this commitment that sets us apart, and helps insure the success of each program.
