If you’re a former dancer and/or parent to a child who’s a dancer, you know all too well the numerous injuries that can occur from this activity. An injury called, “dancer’s hip” is common in the world of dancers. During activity, a pop is felt in the hip during activity, often causing pain and decreased mobility.

For those who suffer from this condition, physical therapy can be incredibly beneficial to your treatment plan. In an experience shared by moveforwardpt.com, a young dancer finds that participating in physical therapy helped her continue pursuing her dreams as she dealt with an injury. After a surgery to fix her hip impingement, she describes her experience with physical therapy.

“‘My rehab was a lengthy process, but one I was happy to embark on,’ Isabella said. ‘I watched many other dancers go through this same form of rehab and come out the other side.’

Now 15, Isabella is back doing what she loves.

‘Without my Physical Therapist’s dedication and her understanding of my injury, I’m not sure that I would have ever returned to dancing.’”
