Atlanta Dance Medicine is Atlanta’s premier physical therapy practice dedicated to working with dancers and performing artists. Trusted by the Atlanta Ballet, Alliance Theater, Atlanta Opera, Staib Dance, and the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance, our highly skilled dance medicine PTs are passionate about maintaining the health and wellness of our patients and quickly and safely returning injured performers back onto the stage.
Atlanta Dance Medicine was started by two physical therapists, Mandy Blackmon and Emma Faulkner. All of our highly-trained physical therapists have extensive first-hand experience as dancers or in the performing arts. This experience coupled with focused and comprehensive continuing education in the area of dance medicine ensures that every patient will have the most understanding, knowledgeable, relatable, and skilled physical therapists available to help with their prevention or recovery.
Not only are our PTs highly educated and experienced, we are also leaders in the field. We are highly active in several performing arts medicine groups including the American Physical Therapy Association’s Performing Arts Special Interest Group, International Association of Dance Medicine and Science, Performing Arts Medicine Association, and Dance USA’s Task Force on Dancer Health. Our therapists hold leadership positions and present frequently on local, state, national, and international platforms.
You are more than a patient – we look forward to building a long lasting relationship with you.
