In person sessions involve a comprehensive exam to assess your problem followed by education and exercise/movement-focused therapy at my rehab space in San Francisco.
Based on the exam and your individual injury presentation, we will develop a personalized rehab strategy for you.
The goal of treatment is to keep you as active as possible while reducing pain, building capacity, promoting healing and returning you to sport or normal life as soon as possible.
Most uncomplicated cases require around 1-4 sessions, more complicated cases (like surgical cases) may require 6-8 sessions.

Testimonials from online clients
“When you're injured, the list of things to panic about can accumulate quickly. One of the first things I did after dislocating my elbow while bouldering was to contact Dr. Natasha, and she just as quickly helped me reframe my attitude and start building a recovery plan. I'd heard great things around the web and reached out regarding remote consultations.
The video conferences were easy to schedule and very helpful! It was critical to me to work with a rehab specialist who works with climbers due to the paranoia and overreaction that I was getting from local doctors (most of whom had recently seen Free Solo and were freaked out about climbers' bodies).
Having previously trained as a powerlifter, I also appreciated that aspect of her own background and how she incorporated that style of training into my recovery program. (Using deadlifts and rack pulls to restore range of motion to my elbow? Genius!)
I'm nine months recovered from my injury and climbing hard again! Thank you so much, Natasha!”
- Callahan W.
“I wasn’t sure whether or not an online consultation was going to be for me. I came to Dr. Natasha as a climber with a chronic shoulder injury and was worried that without seeing me in person that she wouldn’t know what was wrong.
After talking with her via video chat it was very clear that there were no red-flags and she was able to assure me after some pointed questions and self tests she had me perform that nothing was seriously damaged or torn which made me feel a lot better. I needed some sort of strengthening program to help me build capacity in my shoulders for the climbing goals I have.
I was worried about not being able to figure out the exercises on my own but she had videos and explanations prepared and a rehab/training template she sent me to follow. She even gave me some helpful form feedback after I sent her some videos after my first week of trying the rehab. After a couple weeks I was feeling significantly less pain, had more range of motion, and, more importantly, felt WAY more confident using my shoulder climbing. 6 weeks later I’m completely pain free and feeling stronger through my shoulders than ever!
Who would have thought I would love shoulder press and bench press so much!
Dr. Natasha knows her stuff and I tell all my friends to see her! She won’t give you fluff and online consultations are perfect if you are not in San Francisco. It was really important to me to work with someone who understands climbing and has gone through similar shoulder injuries.”

Testimonials from in-person clients
“Truly incredible work and education by Dr. Barnes! I was told by three different MD's after 2 different MRI's that I would need surgery for a traumatic climbing-related knee injury. 5 weeks later I am working up to 1.5x body weighted deadlifts and squats- and feeling mentally and physically revitalized.
Natasha's work is ultimately bringing up the overall quality of medicine that we as a community can expect - and rests on a foundation of functional medicine that doesn't require you to sit around and wait for your surgery date.”
- Clara L.
“Natasha completely rewired how I think about injury: I now recognize that one must engage in an active rehab program and focus on healing AND gaining strength simultaneously to promote recovery.
I have learned so much about self-treatment and have gained holistic knowledge rather than one-time relief. I am so grateful to Natasha - we are so lucky to have her in our community.”
