The Upper West Side of Manhattan is home to many dancers, from full-time professionals to individuals engaging in dance-related activities for fun and recreational purposes.  Along with this concentration of dancers in our local neighborhood comes the tendency for our practice to see and treat many injuries specifically related to the repetitive movements and physical demands placed on the human body by the sport and art of dance.

At Integrative Spine and Sports, we specialize in the treatment of dance injuries in our Upper West Side practice, providing non-surgical orthopedic, chiropractic and podiatric (surgical and non-surgical) care, as well as physical therapy and educational resources designed to heal dance injuries, alleviate pain and restore function, flexibility and mobility.  We strive to get dancers back on their feet and doing what they love as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Dancers put a great deal of stress and strain on the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and soft tissue of almost every area of the body, including the neck, back and spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, leg, ankle and foot.  This repetitive stress and strain can lead to acute injuries, as well as the development of chronic pain conditions resulting from overuse.

Our medical team includes a board-certified physiatrist, chiropractors, podiatrists and physical therapists, and together we provide integrative treatment plans that are holistic in nature, taking into consideration the entire body, rather than simply a specific point of injury.  Our comprehensive treatment plans include traditional and cutting-edge medical procedures, state-of-the-art technologies, traditional and advanced chiropractic techniques, physical therapy modalities and therapeutic exercise regimens, as well as patient education.

The non-surgical treatments we offer are designed to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, restore mobility, improve flexibility, and increase strength, while also promoting healing and preventing future pain and injury.  Our goal is to get you back to your desired level of activity as a dancer, whether dance is your full-time profession or a way to relax and de-stress after a long day or week of work.
