Dance Physiotherapy

Dancers of all ages and levels may at some stage need specific physiotherapy assessment, treatment and injury management from a specialist dance physiotherapist. Whether your teacher has requested a pre-pointe assessment or you are wanting to improve your strength or flexibility Nicole Baer can help you.

Some common dance related injuries include:

  • hip impingement
  • snapping hip
  • clicky hip
  • ankle impingement
  • rolled ankle

The treatment plan may include:

  • Activity modification to allow you to continue dancing safely
  • An exercise program to address the weaknesses, tightness that you may have
  • A return to dance plan
  • Referral for images such as an MRI or X-ray

It is important to see a specialised dance physiotherapy to diagnose the injury and help to develop a clear and concise treatment plan.
