A Note from Dr. Alexis:

Hi there!

Passionate physical therapists like yourself message me daily asking about courses to help them sharpen their skills in working with dancers and help grow their business as a dance medicine specialist.  Even those who have experience treating dancers have looked to me and the staff at AZDM to level up their practice and establish themselves as a strong practitioner in the dance medicine field. 
That’s why I created the AZDM #dancemedpro training program.
Since rebranding in 2018, AZDM has quickly become a leader in rehabilitation and education of the dance community. You’ve probably seen our social media posts – our “before/after” posts of our clients, check-ins all over the country when we travel to teach workshops at dance studios, and our client success stories – which all speak to our success in serving the community we love.  Now you have an opportunity to do the same. 

(If you want to know I little more about me and how I became a #DANCEMEDPRO, click here.)

Read This:

The #DANCEMEDPRO training program is NOT for everyone.  This program is for ambitious action takes who are ready to expand their knowledge and skills in dance medicine and immediately implement them to boost their ability to treat a community who desperately needs knowledgeable practitioners.

(PS – The picture to the left is of one of our favorite clients, Brenna.  She said her right hip was stuck like that for 2 years after overstretching.  30 minutes later, the hip was almost back to normal and Brenna left her first appointment feeling great!)

Here’s what some of our our clients are saying about their first visit at AZDM. 
In 12 months, your clients could be saying the same about you! 
(These are from our post initial visit surveys, clients have the choice to comment anonymously.)

“AZDM is excellent at determining the root cause of our pain and/or the issues we are seeking improvement on. We always see improvement from the start to the end of a visit and walk away with easy-to-follow post-visit care instructions that are effective. We very much appreciate the treatment, care, and effectiveness of AZDM to keep our dancer injury-free!”

“I worked with Alexis AZ DanceMed for the first time yesterday and it was a revelation. It marked the first time in a long time that I felt hopeful about regaining function in my right hip joint. And I went there about my shoulder!?! With Alexis’s methods, I was amazed to see that my body can still learn new patterns. Things shifted within an hour.”

“Alexis is straight up amazing! I have been dealing with a back injury for 5 months and no one could figure out what was wrong. After going to Doctor Alexis she was able to pin point my problem and help me out immediately. I am from ABQ, NM and I would make trips just to see her. I believe in her and recommend everyone to go to her!”
