Magna PT specializes in dance specific physical therapy and dance fitness evaluations for dancers, focusing on injury prevention, rehabilitation and conditioning. We also feature a 500 square-foot professional dance studio so our therapists can evaluate and monitor your progress in a professional setting.
Dancers will receive a customized plan to meet specific challenges and needs while regaining top form while restoring proper joint mechanics, balance muscle function, movement awareness and developing stronger technique.
While our focus is Dance Medicine, we consider ourselves experts in the performing arts. Our clinicians have experience with performing artists including figure skaters, musicians, gymnasts and singers.
Our singers can also take advantage of vocal chord musculature massage to improve flexibility in that region while helping to improve voice control and sound.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
New York City Ballet
Physical therapy is something dancers can't live without. Our bodies are our lives, and thanks to our physical therapists, we can achieve peak performance
It is difficult in the dance world to find a doctor who understands not only the injury a dancer is dealing with, but how the injury relates to what steps the dancer can continue with in class. Having someone who understands the terminology and specific dance related causes of an injury is integral to helping dancers overcome the problem as well as avoiding future setbacks. Brian Magna has this knowledge, and it can benefit any dancer facing an injury, no matter how severe.

A Dancer cannot be slowed down by pain or injury. Brian understands this. He treats a dancer's body with care and respect. He knows how to pinpoint a concern and treat it quickly. Working with Brian while I was a principle dancer with the Hartford Ballet, I knew I could trust him to accurately assess what was going on with my body. Brian could correct imbalances and give me exercises and tips to improve my performance. This approach gave me confidence I would return stronger and less likely to repeat an injury. It also boosted my understanding of how my body works in a biomechanical way. Now a teacher of dance, I confidently recommend my students to Brian for treatment and rehabilitation."
