The Dancer Risk Assessment (DRA) Program is a comprehensive assessment method to analyse each individual dancer’s risk of getting injured from their regular training methods and dance routines.
Dancers are susceptible to multiple injuries due to the physical repetitive work and stress put on the muscles, joints and body. Without knowing their limits, ultimately the dancer will unwittingly push themselves into serious injuries.
The DRA program is a proven method developed by Physiowerkz based on its experience in dealing with dancers, creating a comprehensive risk profile of each individual dancer. It specifically maps out the bodies limits for common dance movement routines and identifies problem areas at risk of injury. The dancer will then be able to shape their dance training to prevent injuries to which they are specifically at risk..
The DRA also identifies potential key latent issues, not known or developed until particular movement or repetitive training starts. When the injury occurs, it causes further problems such as inability to train or permanent damage to their dancing career.
The DRA is a single-session assessment performed by trained members of the Physiowerkz team to provide the complete dance risk profile of the individual.
