Our Dance Assessment takes into account your history of dance, the type of dance you do, and any goals you may have in relation to dance. Our Physiotherapists with a background in dance understand how important it is to prevent injuries so that we can keep you dancing, and the Dance Assessment aims to do just that! Dancing often requires us to adopt postures to perform movements that we would not normally do in everyday life, so having adequate strength and flexibility is crucial.
Your Dance Musculoskeletal Assessment will include:
- A thorough history of your previous injuries and dancing
- A postural assessment
- An assessment of your foot type and the impact of this on your dance
- Assessment of your flexibility and core strength
- Advice including exercises which may benefit your dancing and help to prevent injury
The Dance Musculoskeletal Assessment is carried out over 45 minutes and costs $135. Rebates through your private health fund are available. The Dance Assessment will take place in one of our private treatment rooms, and you will also be given advice and exercises as part of the time put aside for your assessment. Contact us at Bend + Mend today to book your Dance Assessment so that we can keep you on your feet for longer!
