Physio for dancers is a specialised area that involves the prevention and treatment of dance-related injuries. Dancers place a high demand on their body often without understanding how their body works. Our dance physiotherapist works to educate dancers in order to improve technique and prevent injury.
At Norwest Sports Physio we can provide you with:
- Pre Pointe Assessments – to determine readiness for pointe work through the assessment of flexibility, foot/ankle strength, classical technique, turnout range etc.
- Injury Prevention Screening (including Tertiary Dance Council Screening): which are useful for any dancer regardless of age and level. They assess strength, posture, core control, flexibility etc.
- Dance Injury Treatment: for all types of dance-related issues ie. foot/ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain or overuse injuries.
