Dance Medicine

New to Cherry Creek Wellness Center’s Stapleton Office!
Dance training routinely demands students to perform complex movement patterns in extreme ranges of motion placing high stresses on the trunk and joints.  Both traumatic and overuse injuries are common in this population and an injury may interfere with training, performance, or even end a dancer’s career.  Prevention is the key to avoiding injuries and should be directed toward identified risk factors specific to each individual dancer.  Due to the unique demands dancers place on their bodies, it is imperative to find health care providers familiar with a dancer’s needs when seeking treatment for a dance injury.

Call the Stapleton clinic to set up your dance specific screening, evaluation and treatment of a dance related injury, or pointe readiness screening today.
