Dance Injury Rehabilitation

Recent literature has shown that the prevalence of injury among dancers is extremely high. With the involvement of different body types, flexibility, strength, shoe type, floor surfaces, and other environmental features, the potential for influencing injury occurrence increases. As the art of dance continues to change and place higher challenges on the dancer, healthcare providers who work with this select group need to possess a distinct body of knowledge and specialized skills to bring the dancer back to optimal performance status.

Common, treatable dance injuries that we regularly see at our clinics include (but are not limited to):

  • Low Back Pain
  • Foot & Ankle
    • Achilles Tendonitis
    • Posterior Impingement
    • Lateral Ankle Sprain
    • Plantar Fasciitis
    • Sever’s Disease
  • ACL Repair
  • Snapping Hip (Coxa Sultans)
  • Anterior Knee Pain
  • Spondylolysis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Chronic and Acute Pain
