Dancer’s Lower Leg and Heel Pain
Ruby aged 9 attended 4 physiotherapy sessions for longstanding lower leg and heel pain when walking and ballet dancing. After 4 treatment sessions (which included soft tissue massage, stretches, advice and exercises to improve leg alignment, strength and calf flexibility, reduce pain and improve alignment when walking and doing ballet) Ruby was discharged by Theresa as her pain was significantly better and leg biomechanics improved. She has since passed her ballet exam she was preparing for.
“When I was in the car to go to you for the first time I was really scared, but afterwards I was absolutely fine. When I got home I couldn’t wait to go back again. I will be really sad that I will not be going back again.”
— Ruby, aged 9
