It is our mission to give you the most effective treatments to get you back dancing as quickly and as safely as possible.
Who would benefit most from AZDM services?
AZDM was created by dancers to address their unique health and wellness needs. We focus our care on performing artists including dancers, gymnasts, skaters, cheerleaders and martial artists. But wait! AZDM loves all athletes! Over the years we have worked with numerous sports athletes including marathon runners, swimmers, cyclists and weightlifters/crossfit athletes. We also specialize in recovery following surgery, and treat most orthopedic conditions.
What can I expect during a session at AZDM?
You can expect fast, quick and effective treatment for dancers, by dancers. All therapy and conditioning sessions are completely one-on-one without the distractions of other patients in the clinic. All sessions are provided by licensed personnel. We focus on hands-on treatment techniques during therapy sessions, combined with functional dance conditioning exercises to help you return to dance quickly and safely. All sessions usually end with tips to help you manage your symptoms and keep you on track with your improvements between sessions. Lastly, we are always available by phone, text, or email to answer any questions or address any concerns you have while we work with you.
How long do I have to go to AZDM before I start to see results?
Many of our clients experience decreased pain or improved function during their first session. On average, most dancers visit AZDM 4-6 times before returning to dance without compensation or pain if they are injured. Dancers wanting to improve performance start seeing resulting in 6-8 conditioning sessions typically. More complicated injuries may take longer before results are achieved but it is always our goal to get you back dancing as soon as possible.
