The professionals at OFAC have years of experience treating the unique injuries to the feet and ankles of dancers both professional and amateur. Drs. Neufeld, Cuttica, and Sanders are members of the exclusive medical team that serves the dancers of The Washington Ballet. OFAC’s doctors maintain an excellent return-to-dance record for their patients. At OFAC, you should expect nothing less but the very best care for dance related injuries.
OFAC helps athletes remain active and competitive through comprehensive and individualized therapy programs to help improve overall performance, strength and conditioning and to help prevent repeat injuries. Our nationally recognized physicians lead and train our sports injury rehabilitation team that includes physical therapists, athletic trainers and physical therapy assistants, many of whom are also avid athletes.
