At the age of 15, Natalie suffered a hip injury requiring surgery and it was during her rehabilitation that she realised she wanted to help others return to the things they enjoy doing.

Symmetry Physio has assisted Natalie return to sport and everyday activities post injury, and she hopes to be able to provide the expectational and individualised care to her clients just like many Symmetry practitioners have provided to her over the years.
