Physical Therapy for Dancers
Pain is a not a normal side effect of dancing. Many dancers suffer chronic pain. Or you may have an injury and want to return to top performance quickly and safely. A physical therapist trained in dance rehabilitation can help you reduce pain, avoid permanent damage, recover from an injury and improve your performance.
Dance rehabilitation specialists help you safely return to dance by relieving pain and improving your quality of movement.
