Physical Therapy Treatment for People and Performing Artists Involved in Ballet, Contemporary, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, Classical Indian Dance, Figure Skating
Dance is a beautiful art form and requires a mixture of flexibility, strength, and power while maintaining poise and fluidity. Especially with year-round training, it is common for dancers to develop overuse injuries as a result of their dance form and overall physical demand for practices and performances.
Dance Rehabilitation at Elite Sports Physical Therapy is comprised of investigating the cause of dance injury, restoring flexibility and performing dance related movements which promotes safe return to dance. Back injuries may be related due to repetitive hyperextension in which a mixture of core strength and stabilization is beneficial for our dancers, gymnasts, and ballerinas. Additionally, knee and ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis can affect all dancers and through lower body strengthening, balance, agility and leaping activities, our customized dance rehabilitation program can create a comprehensive treatment program.
Whether you practice ballet, Indian classical dance or gymnastics, our physical therapists will customize your treatment plan to suit the needs of your dance form. At Elite Sports Physical Therapy, we have created a dance therapy program that can help our performing artists return on stage and back to competition! Our focus is to improve our dancer’s strength, stability and control through all their positions and forms performed during dance or gymnastics.
