Dance Physiotherapy

Dance Physiotherapy is different from other forms of physiotherapy as it is a highly specialised sport and art form.

It involves a lot of understanding on the Physiotherapist’s behalf to comprehend what might be causing the injuries. At Capital Physiotherapy, we have physiotherapists that are dancers themselves and understand the complexities of dance.

 Dance that we commonly see including:

  • Ballet
  • Contemporary
  • Hip hop
  • Latin dance
  • Ballroom
  • Jazz
  • Breakdance
  • Tap
  • Pole/ Aerial
  • Swing/rockabilly

Our physio clinic focus on holistic approach and give each dancers a tailored program. We look at all possible contributing factors that could lead to the development of their injuries. This not only allows our dancers to recover from their injuries but also perform at their optimal potential at the shortest time possible. We firmly believe the power of education to our dancers, allowing them to understand the underlying causes of the injuries to help them improve and also prevent future injuries.

We assess our dancers foot control, hip range and strength, posture alignment control, core and back strength, dance specific techniques, both static and dynamic flexibility, coordination and overall control.

  • Pre-pointe assessments
  • Flexibility training
  • Conditioning programs
  • Dance related rehabilitation/treatment post injuries
