Assessments and treatment of all dance and performing arts injuries
Dance physiotherapy can provide an accurate diagnosis of all dance-related injuries and direct the most appropriate evidence-based treatment with a guided return to dance. Along the way we will advise you on what specific steps you need to avoid, so that you can continue with some aspects of your training.
Common dance injuries include back pain, foot pain, knee pain, shin pain and stress fractures. Chronic problems such as low back pain on arabesque, and foot pain on leaping and plie, are often the result of ignoring minor pain. Pain that is ignored leads to abnormal movement patterns and the injury becomes more difficult to treat. Be proactive and see Sport & Spinal Physio to get your dance injury sorted out before it becomes chronic and limits your dancing potential.
