We help dancers prevent and recover from injuries, and offer assessments, screenings and Pilates.
Dance, especially ballet, is a very specialised sport. Therefore, when a dancer gets injured they need specific treatment. The foot, ankle, hip and back are areas commonly injured amongst the dancing population and accurate, early assessment, diagnosis and treatment is vital.
Having a background in dance qualifications and training to treat dance specific injuries are essential elements you should be looking for in your Physiotherapist. Improper and delayed rehabilitation of injuries can hamper a dancers’ ability to return to performing. And because we share your passion for dance we know that’s the last thing you want.
Dance Assessments and Screenings:
- General Dance Screenings to assess for any potential areas of weakness and to help prevent injuries
- Pre-Pointe Assessments to identify any weaknesses that should be addressed prior to commencing pointe work
- Tertiary Dance Assessments as required by tertiary institutions for auditions for their dance programs
