Dance Therapy

Movement-based therapy helps to integrate physical and mental recovery while improving flexibility and joint mobility.

At Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, our dance medicine team recognizes the unique needs and demands of all types of dancers from beginner to professional, and classical to contemporary. Our specialty-focused therapists, physicians and chiropractors provide care for the Indianapolis Ballet, Dance Kaleidoscope and many local studios.

COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES INCLUDE

  • Strength, Posture and Technique Exercises
  • Pilates Exercises for Rehabilitation
  • Injury Screenings
  • Backstage Injury Management
  • Education for Local Dance Studios
  • Functional Assessments and Progressions for Dance
  • Chronic Pain Management

We understand rest is not always enough to heal. Correcting biomechanical problems with strength, posture and technique exercises is often a needed step to bring dancers back to full strength. Dance medicine specialist, Andrea Wilson, is a former professional dancer with the experience and expertise to get you back to just as quickly as humanly possible.

“When our patients return to the stage and perform without pain or physical limitations, we know we've done our job.”

– Andrea Wilson, physical therapist and former professional dancer
