Although dance is a beautiful art form, it can take a toll on a dancer’s body. All dance forms require incredible strength and health of the musculoskeletal system. A dancer’s body may suffer injuries due to wear and the strenuous nature of the art form. Dance medicine promotes wellness with a focus on prevention and rehabilitation.
Common dance injuries include:
Foot and Ankle Injuries (Tendinitis, Stress Fractures, Ankle Sprains)
Knee Injuries (Anterior Knee Pain, Jumper’s Knee)
Back Injuries (Stress Fractures in Vertebrae)
Hip Injuries (Snapping Hip Syndrome)
