Dance is such a beautiful fusion of art and athleticism. While requiring extreme levels of strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, control, power, and resilience, a dancer must maintain an aesthetic appeal and graceful demeanor. It is evident that dance is getting more and more competitive, and the demand on the body is only increasing. Because of this, many dance injuries are a result of overuse or improper training protocols. In addition to nutrition, rest, sleep, hydration, and hormones, early intervention and attention to technical detail can help to prevent acute or chronic overuse injuries, particularly on a developing body. Our physical therapist has experience working with all levels of dancers, from novice to professional. She has treated on tours such as So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars, and provided community outreach to local recreational, competitive, and pre-professional studios. She understands the emotional, physical, and artistic demands of the sport and will evaluate and treat your athlete from a holistic perspective. After rehab with MBody You, you may even find yourself moving better post-recovery than you did pre-injury.
