Fuller Health Group’s dedication to the dance community arose out of a chance meeting with his future wife Sarah, a dancer with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. What he didn’t know then was that his dedication to getting dancers back on their feet and working to prevent injuries would be the source of great joy and a life’s commitment to the art.
We understand the very specific demands a dancer places on their bodies; he knows that they strain their bodies to get the most movement possible out of every joint. Dancer wear and tear span way beyond the studio. Embedded in performance schedules, theatre productions, and artistic projects, dancers demonstrate extreme physical performance. Meanwhile, rehearsal schedules, training conditions, and stages are rarely accommodating to dancers’ specific needs.
Fuller Health Group is dedicated to injury prevention by supporting the physical and psychological demands of a dancer's life. This includes a complete screening, nutritional evaluation, rehabilitation plan, education, and a commitment to working with other health care providers who specialize in dance to provide the best treatment outcome.
Whether you need preventive medicine or therapy after an injury, Fuller Health Group has a wide range of services for dancer health. Through specific diagnosis and treatment, the main goal is to completely restore the ability to function physically and artistically. Through analysis of dance techniques and specific programs for training and rehab, one can prevent injuries from becoming career-threatening.
