Medical Services for Dancers
If you are a dancer, you need a physician who understands the unique demands that dance places on your body. All too often, dancers with pain (or other complex symptoms) are told to stop dancing, a heartbreaking and often avoidable measure! As a former ballet dancer for over 25 years, Dr. Bluestein truly understands the dancer's passion for dance as well as the physical and mental demands that accompany this challenging art form. At Wisconsin Integrative Pain Specialists, we work with dancers to keep them on their toes, rather than in the doctor's office.
Dr. Bluestein specializes in hypermobility disorders (extreme flexibility) which are more prevalent in dancers. Hypermobility disorders are extremely important to recognize as they can influence the frequency/severity of injuries as well as have an impact on almost every system in the body. Management of hypermobility disorders requires a critical assessment of the dancer and a comprehensive and integrative approach. Call us at 715-600-1722 or complete the Patient Screening Questionnaire to see how we may be helpful for the dancer in your life.
