Louisa McGinness of Eastside Physiotherapy provides tailored injury assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for performing artists and dancers of all styles and levels of participation.

Tailored dance rehabilitation

Injury treatment and rehabilitation for dancers is provided with a focus on return to dance training in a modified form as early as possible to minimise time away from classes. Physiotherapists will liaise with dance teachers and tailor rehabilitation as appropriate for dancers of all ages, styles and levels of training.

Pre-pointe screening

The screening involves an assessment of flexibility, balance and technical control required for dancers who are considering commencing pointe work.
