80. Optimising health for the HYPERMOBILE dancer with Dr Linda Bluestein‪!‬ The Balanced Ballerinas Podcast

    • Performing Arts

Dr. Linda Bluestein has been practicing medicine for over 20 years and has helped countless people restore function and improve their quality of life. Her special interest in treating performing artists (who are at increased risk of hypermobility disorders) stems from her many years as a ballet dancer and shattered dreams of turning professional due to her own hypermobility disorder. An integrative medicine physician with certification in Performing Arts Medicine, Dr. Bluestein takes a unique approach to the evaluation and treatment of this highly specialised population. Dr. Bluestein is an international speaker on the forefront of research on pain, hypermobility and dance medicine. Professional services include individual telemedicine visits as well as workshops and lectures for groups. Dr. Bluestein received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine followed by the completion of an anesthesiology residency at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine and is board-certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Personally I came across Linda's work when I was perusing dance related podcasts. She co-hosts the 'Bendy Bodies' podcast with Jennifer Milner and they cover a range of really useful topics for dancers, dance teachers and really anyone interested in optimising their health. Now it was an episode about the connection between hypermobility and anxiety that really caught my attention and as you'll hear in this conversation I found Linda's discussion about this topic incredibly fascinating and useful when working with my own clients. Linda is so smart, so driven and I really respect the work she's doing in this space. An absolute gift to the dance world and I can't thank her enough for her own podcast and content that she shares so freely. Thank you so much Linda for also carving out some time to share yourself with the Balanced Ballerinas community!
