Dancers – Screenings for Injury Prevention

Doctorcall City Physio has been working closely with dancers in Manchester since 2008. We have close affiliations with The Centre for advanced teaching in Dance at the Lowry, The Northern Ballet School on Oxford Road, The Palace Theatre on Oxford Road, Company Chameleon and the Manchester International Festival.

As a result of these affiliations City Physio has developed a physiotherapy screen designed to assess dancers and provide practical advice and exercises to minimise the risk of injury. Working closely with Alexandra Smith from Energy Flow fitness we have developed a series of flowing sequences that can be used as a warm up, or just an exercise routine that target the specific weaknesses we see occurring in the individual.

Our screens are applicable to all types of dance from the classical ballerina to the break dancers of FlexN or the contemporary dancers of Company Chameleon.

Dancers Screen - What's involved?

The screen involves taking a history of previous injuries and then a series of objective tests assessing muscle lengths, muscle strength, functional movement patterns, and stability. The screen, and then the resulting exercises takes approximately an hour. The fees for the screen are £76 and the location is our clinic located in Bannatynes Chepstow Street.

We offer prompt physiotherapy appointments, aiding you to a speedier recovery. Call now on 0844 257 0122, or book online.

"Just a quick note to share how impressed my wife and I were with the level of service we experienced with Dr Heidari and with the Doctorcall team. My 20 month old son was suffering from dangerously high temperature and from call to treatment about 60 minutes elapsed. The boy is now sleeping soundly and because of all of you we will as well."

"Just wanted to thank you how you helped my daughter today. My daughter and I are 13 flight hours separated so finding you when she was so sick gave me a great peace of mind."
"I would like to leave a feedback for your office and especially for the DR Sheehan. My daughter got the visit of DR Sheehan last Saturday at her home. As I live abroad my daughter whose a student in London lives alone I was quite worried. I was amazed by your service overall, quick response, very well organized and dedicated. Also I am astonished by DR Sheehan, he has been very helpful, very quick at replying to my couple emails and very thorough in his explanation, he really provided an outstanding service. I would highly recommend your services and DR Sheehan in the future."
