Types of Treatment
BreakThrough Physical Therapy is proud to specialize in the rehabilitation of dancers.
Knowing the demanding rehearsal schedules that these athletes have to keep, we make every effort to work with scheduling needs to ensure they receive excellent care without compromise to their rigorous routine.
Our experienced staff members have worked with amateurs through professional dancers and have a keen understanding of how the body needs to be able to move in order to reach performance goals. We have ex-professional dancers on staff as Therapists that are thrilled to work with our injured dancers to address all aspects of their rehabilitation needs.
In order to provide the best possible rehabilitation experience, we have designated studio space specifically for dancers to provide a true dance surface, mirrors, and barre to mimic a studio setting. This allows our Physical Therapists to evaluate specific techniques as they would naturally occur in a dance setting, and address concerns to prevent further injury.
Our Pilates studio equipment also offers an exceptional option for the dancers rehabilitation needs. Pilates exercises target the core musculature, while incorporating other muscle groups that are imperative for the dance population. Our staff are trained in these exercises and frequently incorporate the Pilates methods into programs for our dancers due to their effectiveness.
Dancers that are interested in Pointe, but concerned about their body’s readiness for this are encouraged to set up a Pointe Preparedness Evaluation with one of our Dance Specialists. This one-on-one session will evaluate a dancer’s body and the elements needed to transition into pointe work. The therapist will address areas of concern and educate the dancer on how to improve the condition of his/her body to better prepare for the demands of Pointe, and most importantly- avoid injury.

Nash made me feel comfortable right away. He is very knowledgeable and has a calm, encouraging manner. I was thrilled with the success…
Julie and Jessica were invaluable in my breast cancer recovery. After a long recovery from a mastectomy, chemo, radiation, and reconstructive surgery with implants, I still suffered from pain in my ribs below my breast and pain in my breast area from radiation. The Breast Center at UW Hospital was incredible during the implant surgery…
From the first time I met Julie and Jessica, it was clear that concern for my total care was their priority. This included both the physical and mental challenges of breast cancer recovery. Upon learning of their focus on all aspects of this targeted program, I knew I was in the right place and on…
After a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction which required muscle to be removed from my back and brought to my chest, I didn’t want anyone touching me. My chest felt weird, I was in a lot of pain, and I was tired of doctor appointments. But I also felt very weak and knew I needed…
We rate BreakThrough Physical Therapy a 10; we are extremely happy! After having received excellent PT in the past, we had no doubt this was the only place we would trust with our son’s recovery. The warm, welcoming environment makes it a comfortable place to receive therapy. This puts him at ease allowing for the…
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the BreakThrough Physical Therapy team, my husband is a believer now too.
