At Activate Dance Physio, we treat dancers of all ages and performance ability from professional through to students just starting out. We aim for the highest level of care! Ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip-hop, ballroom and highland dancing are just some of the genres we cover!
We recognize the need to treat dancers throughout their career and not just at the time of injury. We know the specific needs of dancers and the challenges that dancing can place on the body and are experts at improving areas of concern and tailoring our programs to the individual. Our services range from hands on treatment and exercise progressions to pre pointe assessments, strength training and injury prevention and recovery management.
At Activate Dance Physio Susie Bond and her team of highly trained physios, provide evidence-based diagnosis and treatment. All physios have a breadth of experience in performance dance (most have been or still are professional dancers), so can provide specific direction on the physical capabilities of each student.
Note for the parents…
We understand that it’s hard to see your children in pain and we will support you when it comes to strategies on pain management, treatment and sustainable prevention of recurrence. It’s important that parents and physios work in partnership in order to attain the best results for your child. We aim to communicate with you at each stage through your child’s assessment and injury recovery process.
Note for dance teachers…
Activate Dance Physio would like to work with you in partnership, so your students maximise their performance and avoid any injuries. We offer dancer-specific assessments that provide direction and treatment strategies tailored to the needs of your students. We like to communicate progress with you (written or verbally) after each treatment so you can support your student in practice.
