Cody Johnson, DPT, ATC – Athletic Advantage Physical Therapy
With a masters degree in Athletic Training combined with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, Cody holds a certification in dance rehabilitation and is a dance medicine specialist. He has over 15 years of clinical experience treating both pre pointe, competitive dancers, pre-professional and professional dancers. Cody is also a member of International Association of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) and Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA).
Cody has extensive experience rehabilitating dance injuries as a result of overuse, inefficient technique or traumatic injury. With a thorough understanding of the dancer’s biomechanics and physiology we perform a complete functional movement assessment of the body. We are able to identify their strengths and weaknesses, as well as areas of decreased mobility. We then work to restore and create an optimal balance of mobility, coordination and strength. We want to educate the dancer with a better understanding of their biomechanics and with the knowledge to proceed in their dance career with more effective practices for injury prevention, conditioning and overall wellness.
