Dance Medicine Practicum Series
Westside Dance Physical Therapy values the pursuit of knowledge and the journey of being a life long student. We are proud to share our experiences in treating the dancer population through a series of continuing education courses. The series is focused on clinical assessment and management of the dancer/patient and designed to upgrade the knowledge and practical application in the prevention, reduction and rehabilitation of dance injuries.
Our Dance Medicine Practicum is divided into 4 two-day modules. Each module consists of a combination of lecture, demonstration, clinical assessment and hands-on lab experience.
The maximum number of attendees is limited to 20 with two instructors and one lab assistant.
The four units of our Practicum include:
Concepts in Dance Medicine
Lumbar spine, Hip and Pelvis
Thorax, Cervical spine and Shoulder
Currently there are no dates for the Dance Medicine Practicum at Westside Dance Physical Therepy.
