Physiotherapist for contemporary dancers
I am a physiotherapy student and I am not a dancer but I am interested in dance and theatre in general.
I would like to know if there is a chance, because I am not a dancer, in terms of courses for physiotherapists to specialize for dance injuries. What do I have to do and learn and how or where to be physiotherapist specialized for dancers?
Do dance schools and academies around the world have a physiotherapist who is one of the employees? If that is the case, does the PT participate in everyday classes or just with those students who have injuries?
Do you think the physiotherapist has an important role in contemporary dance?
Could someone, maybe, help me to contact some physiotherapist who works with dancers, because I would like to find out more.
Thank you so much!
