Articles & Podcast by Michael
In this special edition of The Confident Body, Michael Dermansky is joined by senior physiotherapist Will Ryan and special guest Natalie Hall who shares a patient’s perspective of coming back from injury. (And if you listen closely, you’ll hear our extra-special guest for the episode: Natalie’s dog!). Natalie, who has a dance background, is a long-term client of MD Health who had a healthy and active life interrupted by injury. After enduring chronic pain for many years, with multiple surgeries as well as secondary pain from using crutches for a long time, she turned to MD Health to reclaim her active lifestyle.
Michael and Will explore Natalie’s journey to recovery, and provide a clinician perspective on the challenges and successes they have seen with patients coming back from injury.
