We want dancers to enjoy what they do and have as long a career as they choose – without pain or injuries being the deciding factor!
Our aim is to help create a safe, supportive environment for dancers, by showing great attention to your health needs and biomechanical features, with a strong emphasis on injury prevention.
A thorough musculoskeletal assessment of muscle strength, flexibility, mobility, postural alignment and dance technique. A dance assessment is beneficial for dancers who are having difficulty with specific movements or technique, or for those who want to prevent potential injuries. Your physiotherapist will identify areas for improvement and give you exercises to help you dance to your full potential and achieve your goals.
A pre-pointe assessment will help identify if a young dancer is ready to start pointe work. It is important that a young dancer is at the appropriate stage developmentally and has the suitable strength and control for the demands of pointe work. Areas for improvement are identified through a holistic examination of the whole dancer, and not just the foot. Your physiotherapist will prescribe specific exercises to help you reach your goal and ensure you are fully prepared to go on pointe.
