INJURIES ARE PART OF DANCING, just as they are part of playing sports. Research indicates that most dancers will experience several injuries during their careers. Unfortunately, many, many dancers report frustration when injuries occur, and even more frustration when they search for healthcare professionals who enjoy caring for injured dancers.
Dr. Jeff Russell, a Certified Athletic Trainer who holds a PhD in dance medicine and science, has 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE caring for and teaching athletes and dancers in the sports medicine, orthopaedics, and dance medicine fields. He also maintains an active research career investigating various aspects of musculoskeletal health and injuries. He applies his background, along with TRUE COMPASSION FOR DANCERS and a desire to help them dance to their full ability, when he evaluates injuries.
