Dance medicine and dancer's health issues

Dr. Feldman was a dancer for years before pursuing a bachelor's degree in physical education with an emphasis on rehabilitation, and following that with a doctorate in chiropractic. He still dances recreationally and maintains a lifelong dedication to the physical health of dancers. He is a regular columnist for Gaynor Minden's pointe shoe company's website, and answers a variety of dancer related healthcare questions on their "Ask An Expert" webpage. He has a manuscript currently under revision based on emails from dancers all over the world, called, "Dear Dance Doctor: Questions and Answers to Keep You on Your Toes".

He is the chiropractor of choice for Cal-Performances, and has worked on such notable touring companies as The New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, Mark Morris Dance Company, Miami City Ballet, Baryshnikov's White Oak Dance Project and Dance Theatre of Harlem.

Dr. Feldman offers a professional dancer discount to dancers in professional companies and dance teachers.
