Are You Struggling With Dance Injuries In The Kensington, MD Area?
A Message From Cynthia Weiss, Owner & Founder of Wellness Rehabilitation Inc.
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many people within Kensington suffer unnecessarily with dance injuries because they’re told…
The Truth Is...
It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have dance injuries. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When It Comes to Solving Something Serious Like Dance Injuries…
You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your dance injuries and keeping it from ever coming back.
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
At Wellness Rehabilitation Inc. we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to your story.
After working with lots of people with dance injuries, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out WHY Your Dance Injury Started
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, use ice and heat, or take pain medicine.
Sometimes, those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of pain and stiffness is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.
Our goal at Wellness Rehabilitation Inc. is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free Discovery Calls. (Yes! That means it is ON US!)
Our Discovery Calls are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery calls you’ll find out what may be wrong and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!
Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back
This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…
…Get back to dancing without fear of dance injuries coming back
…Be able to take as many classes as you wish and get back to rehearsal and performance
…Get back to your pre-injury lifestyle you love

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Wellness Rehab in Kensington...
“I recently had spinal fusion surgery after two years of debilitating lower back pain due to a serious disk herniation, and misaligned vertebra. During these two years my range of activity was severely constrained – it was nearly impossible to exercise, do social things, even shop for groceries or take a leisurely/extended walk. Prior to my surgery, I’d tried many treatment approaches which turned out unhelpful (physical therapy, osteopathic manipulations, pilates, massage, acupuncture, epidural cortisone injections and more). After surgery I knew that physical rehabilitation would be essential for getting back to full activities, but did not wish to go back to the run of the mill physical therapy regimen where therapists see me for 15 minutes, do not have time to carefully assess my condition, and hand me print-outs with tiny images of generic exercises. I sought a more deliberate, well informed and personally tailored mode of rehabilitation. Luckily, through referrals from trusted medical professionals, I found Wellness Rehabilitation. From the first session with Cynthia Weiss I realized that she offered a different and superior approach. We work on core muscle control to protect the spine and we examine thoroughly my posture in daily functions (walking, lifting, reaching, sitting and lying down). Cynthia’s work also includes effective hands-on techniques for relieving trigger points pain and post-surgical muscle spasms, and she is very attentive to any information I provide about my body’s responses. The one-on-one, full hour sessions are delightful and very helpful. Cynthia helps me understand my body’s mechanics, and she gives me insightful tips for homework exercises to enhance the use of core muscles while protecting the back from unnecessary strain. It is worth mentioning that I’ve been an avid dancer prior to my lower back issues so Cynthia’s involvement in this type of activity is an extra bonus for me. Currently, two months after surgery, I am pain-free, am able to take long walks in the parks, shop, do household chores, and engage socially. I would say to anyone reading this that you are in good hands with Cynthia, and things are likely to improve. Be diligent about the homework exercises and remain optimistic.”
“Ballroom dancing is an activity I started as an adult and enjoyed immensely. Sadly, lingering feet injuries halted my participation in dance. I thought my feet would heal naturally and quickly, but that was not the case. Overtime my activity level decreased because of pain. My muscles atrophied and I became more and more de-conditioned. My first session with Cynthia was amazing and gave me hope. She is a master at musculoskeletal alignment. From the moment I shook her hand she began her assessment- using her eyes and hands to identify my issues. She is a natural teacher and strong communicator who takes time to help clients understand all factors at play. I now understand that the root of my injury wasn’t my feet at all. Due to weakness and imbalances in the core, I placed forces on my feet that overtime caused my injuries. I’ve experienced many lightbulb moments about my body and how it works. The rehabilitation process has allowed me to start over and build a body that I can depend on. I’m looking forward to returning to dance, new and improved. I sing Cynthia’s praise to family and friends who compliment my posture and more energetic appearance. If you long to return to the activity that you love, allow Cynthia to guide you to the strong and efficient body you deserve.”
