Natalie Cupero, DPT, MS, understands what it’s like to be an injured athlete willing to do whatever it takes to return to the sport you love. As a competitive gymnast for over two decades, she faced physical therapy numerous times. While Natalie still has a unique interest in human performance and strength training, she currently channels her strong gymnastics and dance background into her work helping patients accomplish their goals. Natalie is a former member of the national championship-winning acrobatics and tumbling team and club gymnastics team at Baylor University, where she received her bachelor’s degree. While pursuing her master’s degree at the University of Notre Dame, she found working with physical therapists and athletic trainers for the football team extremely rewarding. The experience led to a rotation with the Indianapolis Colts during physical therapy school.
