Medical Services for Dancers 

If you are a dancer, you need a physician who understands the unique needs that dance places on your body. All too often, dancers are simply told to stop dancing ... you may as well tell them to stop breathing! As a former ballet dancer for over 25 years, Dr. Bluestein truly understands the physical and mental demands of dance. At Wisconsin Integrative Pain Specialists, we work with dancers to keep them healthy and in the dance studio, rather than in the doctor's office. If you are a dancer, and suspect you may have hypermobility, then Dr. Bluestein will work with you to prevent painful injuries and manage your current symptoms.

  • Achieving maximal longevity in dance 

  • Managing persistent pain in the dancer 

  • Achieving maximal flexibility while avoiding injury 

  • Reduction of risky behaviors
