What is Dance and Performance Physiotherapy?

Dance and Performance Physiotherapy is a specialist area, requiring knowledge of unique techniques and body types to perform these techniques. Injuries range from acute to more longer term pain.

 

I have a though understanding of Dance and Performance Art Medicine​, with knowledge of what is required for high level performance and how to treat and rehabilitate when you are injured or not feeling right.

Some of the more common injuries are to the:

  • Feet

  • Ankles

  • Knees

  • Hips

  • Lower back

But as with all performers any area can be injured following a particular movement or as a consequence of repetition.
