Dance Injury Clinic

Are you a dance parent who is wondering what it will cost your daughter in the long run if she continues to work through the pain?

Have you been told “it is just growing pains” and you need to wait for your daughter’s body to grow up?

Do you have a dancer who is trying to improve their technique but their turnout or flexibility is limiting their progress?

Have you seen other medical provides in the past who don’t communicate with you, your dancer, or their instructors on the best plan to keep your daughter doing what she loves?

Have you seen other medical providers in the past that just tell you to stop dancing?
 

We have a unique treatment approach that focuses on solving these problems with our clients.

Our goal is to help keep your dancer active while recovering from injury by staying in the studio and guiding them in ways to modify their training, rather than eliminating dance!

We combine manual hands-on techniques with guided supervised exercises to help your dancer get stronger, pain-free, and perform at their peak level to get them back in the classroom and on the stage.
 

The SPARK Physical Therapy Commitment

No long waits or multiple trips to providers’ offices every week. We see your dancer either onsite at your studio or in the comfort of your home when it is convenient with your schedule.

One on one for a full hour with your doctor of physical therapy, every visit.

We provide your dancer with a customized plan specifically designed for them, based off their unique injury and goals.

Full transparency in what you pay. You will never get a bill from us a couple of months after your visit.

Access and availability to you! Have a question about your dancer’s pain or exercise program? Get an answer from your therapist directly.
