Dancers Rehabilitation Program
Dancers have a high likelihood of injury due to a high number of repetitive motions and extreme positions required during training and performance. Dancers must have strength, flexibility and stability in order to prevent injuries from occurring. Common dance-related injuries involve the low back, neck, foot, ankle, hip and knee. Injuries can be related to a strain/sprain, overuse, tendonitis, instability and/or muscular imbalance. We will work with you to prevent injury and improve the quality of your dance performance, core strength, core stability, and control. The average physical therapist may not have the appropriate specialized training required to treat dance related injuries. Our physical therapists are uniquely positioned to identify abnormalities in movement patterns because of their background in dancing and extensive knowledge in treating dance specific conditions.
What to Expect
Orthopedic manual therapy is widely used at our office and is one of the most effective techniques used to help athletes bounce back quickly from their injuries.
You will work one on one with a physical therapist every time you come for therapy. This will allow the therapist to get to the source of your injury, rather than just treating the symptoms. Doing so sometimes will require going to an actual training/practice session to videotape it so that it can be carefully analyzed and working closely with your coach.
Low level laser therapy may also be used during your treatment. It has been quickly gaining popularity in the rehab world due to its effectiveness in decreasing pain, improving tissue strength, accelerating tissue repair, and improving circulation.
Another commonly used procedure in sports rehabilitation is kinesiotaping. There are many major benefits to using elastic therapeutic tape. One of them is corrected muscle function (i.e., facilitating the contraction of a weak muscle or inhibiting a tight/spasmotic muscle.) Other benefits include pain relief, corrected joint dislocations, and increased circulation, which produces better blood flow and lymphatic drainage, leading to faster healing.
For the majority of cases, a combination of these methods will help you recover quicker and effectively get rid of pain once and for all.
