The guideline of my physiotherapy practices is based on the three pillars: regeneration, prevention and treatment.
The high number of performances means that the dancers are exposed to strong physical strain. Exhaustion leads to lack of concentration and a greater risk of injury develops. It is required to allow therapeutic measures that accelerate the recovery process as relaxing by manual massage, water therapy and heat application.
Due to individual body structure and to an acquired inappropriate behavior, the dancers may develop compensatory mechanisms. These mechanisms complicate the execution of dance techniques; they increase unnecessarily the expenditure of energy, promote joint degeneration and increase the risk of accidents. Preventive measures include raising awareness of malpositions by therapeutic ballet training, supplementary rehabilitations training for individual task mastery of dance roles.
The profession of a dancer is always associated with injury. Intensive professional treatment for such injuries lasts lengthy with conventional physiotherapy. This may also cause muscle breakdown and loss of condition. If thereafter the dancers are cast into the performances without appropriate, the recidivism rate is likely or inevitable what may cause serious injuries to chronic conditions. A therapeutic measure includes targeted rehabilitation training after trauma. Here are all the techniques of physical therapy are available.
