A thorough physiotherapy assessment is super beneficial before a young dancer progresses en pointe (dancing on the tips of their toes) for several reasons.

Firstly, it helps evaluate the dancer's physical readiness, including factors like strength, flexibility, and overall musculoskeletal health. This assessment can identify any weaknesses or imbalances that may increase the risk of injuries associated with pointe work.

Secondly, a physiotherapy assessment ensures that the dancer has sufficient ankle strength and mobility, as well as proper alignment of the feet and legs. This is essential for executing pointe work safely and effectively.

Moreover, the assessment allows the physiotherapist to provide personalised exercises and interventions to address specific areas of concern. This targeted approach helps in strengthening the necessary muscles and improving any deficits, reducing the risk of injuries associated with pointe work.

In essence, a thorough physiotherapy assessment is a preventive measure that promotes the dancer's safety, overall well-being, and long-term success in pursuing pointe work.

Please note that dancers should attend this appointment in dance attire and please do *not* warm up prior to appointment.
