Did you know that an estimated 60-90% of dancers have a joint hypermobility disorder?

Research has shown that physiotherapy is a critical component in the management of hypermobile patients. Exercise for hypermobile patients has been shown to help improve self-efficacy, manage pain, decrease risk for injury and increase rates of continuing meaningful participation in activities. Exercises should have a focus on improving proprioception, motor control, balance and strength within a neutral joint range.

This resource package includes access to professional quality video exercises geared toward your hypermobile patients who participate in dance as well as other artistic sports (gymnastics, artistic swimming, etc.). We have compiled exercises we often use in the clinic with this population to improve proprioception, neuromuscular control, posture, strength, and balance. Every exercise includes verbal cues used by dance medicine experts to help your patients better understand where their joints are in space and how to control them. 

What's Included:

  • 18 patient exercises
  • Lifetime access to the resources
  • BONUS! A 60+ minute webinar recording that Dinah Hampson & Geneviève Renaud delivered on May 7 2020 called 'Assessing & Treating Dancers and Artistic Athletes'. The same webinar recording is provided in each Pivot Dancer resource package. **Please note - All Resource Packages by Pivot Dancer have the same webinar recording included.
