Hi every one, fist time post!

 

Can any one recommend a dance physio.

My dd has a slightly fallen arch and needs to build the strength around her knee to support her quad muscles.

We have been to physio attached to our GP, who gave great advice and exercise's

But dd dance teacher has suggested a dance physio might be better for her.

 

We live in Lincolnshire but are willing to travel.

Honeybee I’m not sure where in Lincolnshire you are I found www.barnhousephysio.co.uk through Dance UK they are a little more expensive than the Cambridgeshire one. It located to the south of the county Nr Stamford. For me I pass it every Monday on my way to class, so it was really convenient.

 

Tulte: Where in Cambridgeshire is that Physio located ?, I couldn’t find it on her website, as I may check her out sometime, she certainly has the right background and I’m quite close to the Lincs/Cambrdgeshire border, anyway one of my classes is in Cambridgeshire. .

Hi Honeybee

Recommend Helen Eaton at Greetham Physio (near Stamford)-she is amazing with knees in particular! She and her husband have treated lots of 'names' in the sports world. She looked after dd with patella problems and a broken metatarsal.

Hi Honeybee and welcome to the forum. :-)

Dance UK has a comprehensive list of medical practitioners who specialise in dance, and this can be searched by speciality or location:

Hope that helps. :-)

Just a word of warning about this site for finding a physio. I went to somebody listed here and they honestly had no idea about ballet, so I don't think they check before they list them.

Good point, Ribbons.  I believe if they have any experience treating dancers  they are within their right to put  their names on this list.
