Abstract:

On some levels, dance rehabilitation is no different from that of any other elite athlete. However, even the professional dancer does not usually have the support system of even minor league professional athletes. Thus the clinician's task is made all the more challenging since they must also take into account the milieu and psyche of the dancer as it relates to compliance in addition to promoting full, efficient tissue healing and return to function. Nowhere is the need more pressing than in the performing arts for clinicians with a keen eye for movement, a probing intuitive mind, and the mental flexibility to meet and understand the dancer on their terms. In addition, nowhere else will the results be so gratifyingly beautiful to behold.
