With our knowledge of biomechanics and injury mechanisms we are well placed to treat injuries sustained by dancers.
We have worked with a number of professional dancers, from the world of ballet and contemporary dance.
Dancing is just as taxing on the body as many sports and the injuries sustained are just as debilitating.
Remedial massage and soft tissue treatments are a regular part of a dancer’s regime and The Sportsphysio.com have developed a number of specialised techniques aimed at reducing strain and tension.
Rehearsal & performance
Intensity of training and tight rehearsal schedules, combined with movements that can take the joints, especially of the foot, well beyond their normal range, places great strain on soft tissues and bony structures alike.
Repeated training and performance limits the body’s healing time, often meaning that many injuries are compounded.
Here at the Sportsphysio.com, we understand the requirements of the dance techniques and the stresses of training and performance and always take this into account when designing treatment and rehabilitation programmes.
We can provide specific advice and exercises for pointe work and carry out pre pointe assessments.
