Chiropractic Care for Dancers

In dance, it’s no secret that movement, balance and flexibility are incredibly important to perform to the best of your ability. Whether it’s the samba, ballroom, ballet or the salsa, a properly functioning nervous system is crucial.

As your chiropractor, it’s our job to restore proper movement to your body and spine, which can be of great benefit to dancers.

Here’s how!

Benefits of Chiropractic for Dancers

At Rhapsody’s Chiropractic and Wellness, we understand better than most that dancing can take a serious toll on the body. Often, we welcome patients dealing with issues relating to:

  • Feet
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Hips
  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Wrist
  • Upper and lower back

With chiropractic care, we aim to identify the areas of misalignment in your spine to help promote healing and improved function. When your spine is in proper alignment, your nerves can flow freely, communicating with every area of your body just as they were designed to do without interference. When this happens, you may discover easier movement, improved health, faster injury healing and more.

We’re proud to offer gentle, focused chiropractic adjustments in addition to:

  • Kinesio taping to support problem areas and injury recovery
  • Personalised stretching
  • Postural correction
