Performing Arts/Dance Injury

The PART (Performing Arts Rehab and Training) at Phoenix was started to provide a unique space for dancers to recover from injury. Functional rehab requires you to have the space you need to roll around on the floor or do foutte turns. But that is not all! Physical therapy with a dance medicine specialist produces the strength and technique corrections you need to reach your goals, and the hands-on treatment (myofascial release, joint mobilization, taping, etc) you need to feel better in the process. We also use pain modalities, KT taping, neuromuscular re-education techniques, balance equipment and weight training to help you get where you need to be.

Our physical therapists are specialists in dance medicine and understand the demands placed on a dancer’s body. They are uniquely equipped to observe, diagnose, and treat current injuries as well as identify compensation patterns and technique deficits that may lead to future injury.

Our goal is not simply to rehabilitate dancers, but to ensure that they return to dance stronger than before.

We offer a variety of specialty programs for dancers of different ages, intensity levels, and disciplines. All services are customized to the individual dancer’s needs and goals. Many programs can be arranged on-site at local studios or virtually.
