🤕BANDAGED UP🤕 . So, i bit the bullet, and went to see a physio about the pain I've been having in my ankle. I researched local physios, but then came across @danturnellphysio in Manchester. Dan spent several years as the leading clinician on Harley at London, becoming the Dance & Performamce specialist, working with the cast of @mbnewadventures Swan Lake and numerous other West End performers. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 As soon as I read that, I knew that's who i needed to see. To know that someone understands the needs of a dancer and just how our bodies need to move is hugely encouraging👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 . After accessing my issue, observing me move and my gait, i was surprosed to learn that my ankle issue is probably a knock on effect of a couple of tight or overused ares, and weaker areas, some not even in my foot! The body needs to work equally and as a whole, or problems can arise in areas almost seemingly unconnected! It was hugely interesting🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 . I received a thorough leg massage - not a comfortable one, but one that certainly helped, and a tailored perscription of exercises, Dan taped up my foot to help give added support. It already feels much better than it did, and i I will be a good client and follow through with my strengthening and stretching exercises. I have every faith that they will help my injury, knowing how the problem came about in the first place! I cannot recommend Dan enough. He completely put me at ease and has helped me understand not only how to manage my current issue, but how to help prevent it happeneing again in the future⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ . . . . . . #dancephysioadvice #dancephysio #dancephysiotherapy #physio #physiotherapist #danceinjury #dancerhealth #healthydancer #dancebody #ankleinjury #dancespecialist #manchesterdancer #manchesterphysio #manchesterfitness #manchesterblogger #danceblogger #weblognorth #webloguk #dancemanchester #gifted #ad #danceblog

So excited to be presenting at the @_iadms_ annual conference in #Montreal this October 😁. I attended my first conference in Canberra (Australia 🇦🇺) in 2007 and was hooked! Since then I have had the privilege of attending and/or presenting at subsequent events all over the world; including places like Singapore 🇸🇬 Finland 🇫🇮 England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Switzerland 🇨🇭and the US 🇺🇸. It is so exciting that #iadms is finally coming to Canada 🇨🇦 and I get to present in my home country 😍.

One for all our dancers en-pointe or soon to be en-pointe! One of my favourite dancers, Natalia Osipova, her artistry is breathtaking. Having seen her dance in NY, Melbourne and London, she literally takes my breath away when she dances. Sometimes I hold my breath because I cannot believe what she is capable of. That is the power of dance. Natalia has been Principal of Bolshoi, American Ballet Theatre and is currently Principal of The Royal Ballet. She makes incredibly difficult pointe work look effortless. Enjoy!

MUSCLE MONDAY! 💪 Today’s muscle is the Sternocleidomastoid (SCM). The SCM is one of the largest and most superficial cervical muscles. It’s primary action is to rotate to the opposite side as well as flex the neck. It is innervated by the Accessory Nerve (cranial nerve XI). It can often be imbalanced causing a Torticollis presentation. It is also important for assisting in respiration along with the scalene muscles of the neck. . . Neck pain? Book an appointment at the clinic today for assistance! 👩‍💻 . . #neckpain #sternocleidomastoid #scm #musclemonday #headache #jawpain #physiotherapy #acupuncture #dryneedling #grastontechnique #functionalanatomyseminars #functionaltraining #dancephysio #physio #yqr #yqrbusiness #beempowered #empowerphysioyqr #evolutionfitness

"The effects of an acute bout of foam rolling on hip range of motion on different tissues" . . [Aim of study] To compare the immediate effect of 1 session of foam rolling over the ITB, to that of the gluteal muscles, on hip adduction passive range of motion . . [Protocol] 14 healthy female and 12 healthy male university students were recruited, and foam rolled their ITB and gluteal muscles (split into 2 separate sessions) for 30 seconds x 3 sets to a speed of 30 rolls / minute after warming up for 5 minutes on a stationary bicycle. They also participated in a separate control session where they simply set on a chair for 3 minutes after the same 5 minute stationary bicycle warm up. Hip adduction range was measured using the modified Obers test, pre- and post-intervention. . . [Results] Foam rolling over the gluteal muscle group lead to a 14% improvement in hip adduction passive range, whereas a non-significant 1.1% range improvement was recorded in the ITB foam rolling group. . . [Discussion] ITB foam rolling is a popular choice of treatment for both dancers and health professionals alike to release fascial adhesions. However, the ITB showed little deformity to foam rolling in this study, which can lead to a few speculations - that foam rolling may not be beneficial for gaining range, or it may be possible that a longer / slower / more intense bout of foam rolling is necessary to see results. This study was also conducted on healthy individuals, so it is unclear too if the same results would be achieved on participants with knee/ hip pain /injury. . .

ericst_physio. For over 10 years, our team of expert Physios at Eric St Physiotherapy

For over 10 years, our team of expert Physios at Eric St Physiotherapy have been looking after dancers from far and wide. Some of our Dancers travel over 2 hrs to appointments! We have on-campus Pop-up Physio Screening Clinics at various Ballet Schools including John Curtin College of the Arts. This service is available to all dance schools, please contact us to make an appointment for your school. Or make an appointment at our Practice in Cottesloe. Why a Pointe Assessment? It is important to ensure that young dancers are ready and have developed enough strength to protect their growing bones and growth plates in their feet to avoid long term damage. For many ballet schools a Pointe Assessment is a pre-requisite for a student to commence pointe work. There is so much to consider when taking your ballet to the next level - pointe shoes. ~ STRENGTH: a dancer needs to be able to support their own body weight when en-pointe. Specific exercises will ensure the dancer is strengthening the specific muscles to ensure they can handle pointe shoes. Not just your feet but also core muscle groups, your back, rotators, quads, hamstrings, calves, ankles, feet, arches and insteps. ~ BALANCE: finding your Centre of Balance is critical for pointe preparation. Always starting at the barre, a dancer must show the ability to find their Centre of Balance and maintain proper technique with barre work at the barre and during Centre combinations. ~ POSTURE AND ALIGNMENT: is when a dancer maintains the correct placement during standing and moving. This requires engaging core muscles, shoulders down, chest lifted, rig cage closed and a straight pelvis. ~ FLEXIBILITY: of a dancers feet and ankles are critical to go en-pointe. If a dancer is sickling (pronation) their feet it is an indication they require more strengthening and/or flexibility of the muscles in their feet.

sgdancershealth. \"Readiness for En Pointe Work in Young Ballet Dancers
Are There Proven

"Readiness for En Pointe Work in Young Ballet Dancers Are There Proven Screening Tools and Training Protocols for a Population at Increased Risk of Injury?" -- [Aim of study]: Evaluate the available evidence relating to readiness for dancing en pointe, including injury rates in the adolescent dancer population, screening tools, and pre-pointe training methods. -- [Protocol]: A systematic search using the terms "Dance", "Pre-pointe","Screening" and/or "Training" were used. 27 studies were utilized in this review. -- [Results]: There is no common general dance screening, pre-point screening or pre-pointe training regimes. . Commonly included pre-pointe evaluation components include: age, years of dance experience, present injuries, past injuries, relevé alignment and stability, plié alignment and stability, tendu strength and activation of the intrinsic foot muscles, and upper body alignment and stability. . Age was the most frequently reported evaluation component (95.9%) across all schools. The minimum age considered for progression to en-pointe training ranged between 9 and 13 years. The majority of schools (39.2%) identified 12 years as the most appropriate age. -- [Discussion & thoughts]: The literature suggests that the criterion of chronological age alone is insufficient as an indication for commencement of en-pointe training. Recommendations include an assessment of strength with control and skill acquisition in pre-pointe screening, in conjunction with the traditional criteria of age, foot and ankle plantar flexion range of motion, and years of training. -- 📷: https://unsplash.com/photos/ehFaZsIcffs
