Physio to the next generation of performers

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 3 May 2017

Dancers, like athletes, put their bodies through challenging circumstances and are susceptible to injury.  Physiotherapist Susan Simpson knows all too well the rigors the body goes through on stage.  The former dancer has transitioned from on stage to off, now being hands on with the students at the New Zealand School of Dance. She discusses what’s happening in the world of performance arts physiotherapy and how performers can minimise their risk of injury.
