Dance Rehabilitation

Sammi’s unique experience as a professional dancer, dance teacher, Pilates instructor and a Physical Therapist allow her to identify and treat impairments specific to dancers and performers. Sammi’s multifaceted approach includes identification of impaired joint and soft tissue mobility, faulty technique or muscle activation, and areas of weakness to address specific problems. Treatment includes soft tissue mobilization and joint mobilizations to restore normal movement, as well as technique analysis to correct faulty movement patterns that may be contributing to pain or poor performance. Pilates equipment (including Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, Barrel, and Chair) may also be used for strengthening and training as appropriate. Home exercise programs are also included for continued strengthening and maintenance outside of the clinic.
