Physical Therapy for the Performing Artist
This consultation includes strength, range of motion, and stability deficits as it relates to the performer’s individual art form. Evaluations can be completed on a fee for service basis, or if a prescription is available from a doctor, it can be billed to your insurance.
Specific treatment programs are designed to enable the performer to return to his/her art form. Treatment programs are customized to meet the performer’s immediate needs as a performing artist.
The performer can be placed on an independent program designed specifically for his/her own goals. This will enable the performer to remain in excellent condition during times when they are not taking class or rehearsing, or it can help to enhance their existing training program.
Our state-of-the-art facility includes a Plyometric machine which is used to aid in strengthening and jumping, a dance barre, stabilization equipment, and a large floor area, which allows the dancer/performing artist, to practice floor work and technique.
If you would like to make an appointment or would like more information, please contact Kim Teter at our Latham location at (518) 690-2882 ext 213
