Testimonials for Natalie Sidorkewicz

“From the outset, Natalie’s professionalism instilled in me a sense of trust. For four hours, she performed a thorough assessment of my back, my movements and my body’s strength. She educated me on my bulging intervertebral disc: how it came to be that way, what I could do to recover from it and how to prevent re-injury of it. I had never heard this information from any of the health professionals I had consulted before. It brought new meaning to my condition and symptoms all these years and a better understanding of how I could work to improve my back. Natalie instructed me on how to pick up items from the floor, brush my teeth, lace up my shoes, sit in a chair and roll over in bed in ways that didn’t trigger pain. More importantly, she gave me specific back strengthening exercises tailored to my particular condition and level of ability. One month in, I can honestly say my back is on the mend and getting stronger, with hour-long stretches of pain-free movement. I highly recommend Natalie Sidorkewicz.” —June Rogers, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“I’ve hurt my back a few times and have seen some physiotherapists who helped somewhat, but each time I injured myself, I was given a new “diagnosis” or told that it’s impossible to know exactly what’s wrong. When I hurt myself in March, Natalie was able to figure out what was wrong with me just based on an initial interview. She gave me so many helpful tips and tools to get better. I remember having back spasms while being worked on before by physios and them being bewildered why I was crying. Natalie’s bedside manner was incredible. I didn’t feel crazy anymore and she was able to stop the spasms from happening. Natalie is meticulous about my form with my rehab exercises and I know that her attention to detail has been instrumental in my getting better so quickly. I really appreciated the analogies and examples Natalie would use to describe exercises because I finally felt like I “got it.” Right now, Natalie is helping me to return to my former exercise program. I think she might be as excited as I am about my progress and that makes me feel like she cares about me as a person, not just a client/patient.”
