Dancer care and injury prevention program

Location: Motion Matters Exercise and Rehab Centre, 170 Laurier Ave. W.

On top of physiotherapy for dance injuries provided by specialized therapists, Motion Matters offers dancers, dance instructors and professional dancers with an efficient method for preventing and curing dance-related injuries.

Motion Matters now has two specialized dance therapists: Susan Gardner Rab and Stephanie Therrien. Both are registered physiotherapists and have a strong experience as dancer and dance instructors.


These sessions are done in the Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic:

Physical evaluation and body screening (audition):

One-hour long detailed physical assessment to detect dancer’s weaknesses or physical dysfunctions interfering with their technical abilities.


Written report of the physical evaluation

Individualized exercise programs. Based on the result of the physical evaluation, these programs will help dancers reach excellence and well-being:

One-hour long one on one specialized and custom made conditioning sessions.


Pilates classes (Tower Reformer, Wunda chair, Mat floor, Spine Corrector and more)
