BOSTON, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NormaTec, the leader in rapid recovery for elite athletes, and Boston Ballet, a leading dance company in the world and in the community, announced a partnership. The partnership ensures Boston Ballet dancers have access to cutting edge recovery technology at the Opera House or on tour. Additionally, individual Boston Ballet dancers will receive exclusive deals on NormaTec systems for at-home recovery.
"Most sports medicine practitioners and patrons of the ballet do not realize how little recovery time professional dancers have with 6-10 shows per week. There is no taper phase in professional dance. The dancer's job is to make the dancing look graceful and effortless, regardless of their fatigue level. The NormaTec Recovery System made a significant difference in recovery and enhanced performance with fewer incidence of muscle strains and improved power reported by dancers in their larger muscle groups," said Heather Southwick, Director of Physical Therapy for Boston Ballet.
"We are proud to support Boston Ballet," said Gilad Jacobs, CEO of NormaTec. "Ballet dancers push their bodies to the absolute limit during their seasons, and we're thrilled that NormaTec is able to help these amazing athletes recover quicker in-between performances and remain fresh for each show."
