Screening & Conditioning for Dancers
Course: Screening & Conditioning for Dancers
This course is appropriate for AHPRA registered physiotherapists only*
Musculoskeletal screening forms are now compulsory for entry into many full time courses offered by dance-based tertiary and performing arts institutions. Physiotherapists must therefore be proficient in accurate completion of the form, and be confident to advise the dancer of any corrective exercises needed. This course will instruct the physiotherapist in the accepted standardised methods of measuring and recording the musculoskeletal parameters required on the TDC form and for pre pointe screenings. It will ensure measurements are standardised for physiotherapists working with dancers to allow comparisons and possible inferences to be made regarding optimal ranges of motion for each parameter.
