Dance & Sports Medicine
Athletes require specialized care to prevent, care for and rehabilitate injuries (sports medicine): To achieve the best possible results, we offer individualized plans that may include:
- Traditional physical therapy
- Dry needling
- Spinal manipulation
- Nutritional coaching and behavioral counseling.
We accept most major insurance.
Performing artists require an enormous amount of athleticism, which makes dancers susceptible to distinct injuries in comparison to those in other sports, specifically those that are field or court-based. The training and self-discipline necessary for the individual to become a dancer are potential sources of physical and emotional strain that may result in temporary or extended disability. Therefore, the treatment of dancers (dance medicine) requires a familiarity with their needs and an extensive knowledge of the culture and demands of their sport to properly diagnose injuries and return athletes quickly and safely to activity.
The performance of dance, in whatever form, can result in physical injury that may be acute or chronic due to overuse. At TheraWays, our Dance Medicine patients receive:
- care with latest technology
- skills from various manual therapy techniques
- Mat yoga and Aerial yoga to improve flexibility, strength and balance.
We treat our patients so that they can return to pursuing their passion more confidently.
Sports injuries can be hard to properly diagnose, and what may seem like a simple fracture or sprain at first can turn out to be far more complex. Our facility has the equipment and the highly trained staff necessary to deal with these injuries (Sports Medicine). Sports are one of the most common causes of serious physical injury. Jumping, running, swimming, and lifting heavy weights can all impose undue strain on the body, so overexertion by an individual can result in an injury. Due to the nature of the physical movements that accompany athletic activities, certain parts of the body are more prone to sports injuries than others.
A variety of options are available to you when it comes to getting treatment for your sports-related injury, but the best treatment to restore you to your full physical potential depends on the type of injury you have. The process of regaining your strength may be long and difficult, but new treatment methods can be used utilizing the latest technologies and techniques to restore injured athletes to full physical potential and health.
