Biographical Information

Natalie Bradford is a physical therapist at the University of Vermont Medical Center. She specializes in orthopedics , work rehab and conditioning, sports rehab, and spine rehabilitation. She treats patients with conditions such as vertigo, musculoskeletal pain, total joint replacement, and injuries after surgery. She uses therapies and treatments such as manual therapy, dry needling, and McKenzie Mechanical diagnosis and therapy which is an internationally known method of treating spine and extremity pain.

Natalie's research interests include oncology rehab, low back pain, early PT intervention for BPPV/vertigo, aquatic therapy and knee pain.

Natalie enjoys treating New Americans with various conditions. She specializes in back, neck, and joint pain management and combines a wide variety of interventions to treat these conditions with a practical approach, using only the amount of visits necessary.

Natalie believes that in order to be well, people need to understand their condition and be good self-managers of pain. Empowering people to exercise and have less pain can dramatically improve quality of life. She believes that people need early access to therapy and that prevention of injury or pain is better than waiting too long to fix it Every person has a story and she takes time to listen to that story so she can help build a self-management plan that meets each person's needs.
