Minimising dance injury through changing dance floors Minimising dance injury through changing dance floors | Injury Prevention: Editor's Blog by As someone who has appreciated many dance performances (primarily as I have absolutely NO dancing ability or talent in any single speck of my body!), and as an injury prevention researcher and advocate, my interest was piqued by an article authored by recently published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport . Having been made for martial (...) arts instead of dancing, I can still recall as a teen the difference flooring can make when you ‘land hard’ – bouts on a tatami were much preferred to bouts in a gymnasium with wood floors (too hard) or with gymnastic mats (too soft). Shin splints already irritated by running hurdles and leaping triple jump were further aggravated by both types of floors. Similarly, Hopper and colleagues note that dance floors have the capacity to contribute to – or prevent – ankle injuries such as ankle
Genetic associations of body composition, flexibility and injury risk with ACE, ACTN3 and COL5A1 polymorphisms in Korean ballerinas The purpose of this study was to exam the association of body composition, flexibility, and injury risk to genetic polymorphisms including ACE ID, ACTN3 RX, and COL5A1 polymorphisms in ballet dancers in Korea.For the purpose of this study, elite ballerinas (n = 97) and normal female adults (n = 203) aged 18 to 39 were recruited and these participants were tested (...) for body weight, height, body fat, fat free mass, flexibility, injury risks on the joints and gene polymorphisms (ACE, ACTN3, COL5A1 polymorphism).As results, the ACE DD genotype in ballerinas was associated with higher body fat and percentage of body fat than the ACE II and ID genotypes (p < 0.05). In the study on the ACTN3 polymorphism and ballerinas, the XX genotype in ballerinas had lower body weight and lower fat-free mass than the RR and RX genotype (p < 0.005). Also, the means of sit and reach

Hip pain in dancers. Dancers require extreme ranges of motion in their hips. They require this for many styles and performances. Hip pain and hip injury in dancers can lead to lost work and performance time. There are many potential causes for hip pain in the dancer, including dysplasia, hyperlaxity, both intra- and extra-articular impingement, and soft tissue injuries. This article will review the current literature on these topics in dancers and how they can be applied to the dancer patient.
these requirements to those of an athlete. In contrasts to athletes, only few attention has been given to the prevention of injuries in dancers. Professional dancers are at high risk to develop musculoskeletal injuries, especially, soft tissue and overuse injuries to lower extremities and spine(Hincapié et al, 2008). Several potential risk factors for injury have been suggested, such as a reduced level of aerobic fitness, lack of muscular strength, hypermobility of the joints and altered motor control (...) . Therefore, the purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to examine whether an additional intervention to regular dance lessons influences the physical condition and musculoskeletal injury rate in professional dancers. Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase Musculoskeletal Diseases Other: Exercise Intervention Other: Passive Intervention Not Applicable Detailed Description: Prior to participation, all subjects receive verbal and written information addressing the nature of the study
Paratenonitis of the foot and ankle in young female dancers. In their pursuit of excellence, dancers continually face the risk of injuries, such as paratenonitis. This attests to the strong need for preventive action, which is possible only if major risk factors are identified. The aim of the present descriptive study was to determine the association between risk factors and paratenonitis in young recreational female dancers.One thousand eighty-two non-professional female dancers, aged 8 to 16 (...) rate of injury. Regression analysis indicated that dancers with paratenonitis had greater hip external rotation ROM compared to dancers without paratenonitis. No association with injury was found with age of onset of menarche, body structure, and anatomic anomalies such as scoliosis.Precautionary steps, such as screening for joint ROM and dance technique, may reduce the risk of dance injury. Furthermore, our results led to a very significant justification of the dance maxim ``don't force your
Effect of footwear on dancers: a systematic review. Dancers need their feet to be healthy and pain-free; therefore, the footwear they use is of great importance. Footwear has the potential to enhance or restrict movement and impact the dancer's body in various ways. To evaluate the effects of footwear on dancers, in particular the effects on foot motion and injury during dance movements, we undertook a systematic review of the literature. The major databases were searched for articles (...) on theatrical dance styles and dance footwear. Sixteen articles were selected for inclusion in this study, ten on ballet and the remainder covering a variety of other genres. The contribution of dance shoes to the quality of dance movement is a relatively unexplored subject; little experimental research has been done. Prospective scientific evidence is needed to support or disprove traditional beliefs regarding the effects of footwear on dance performance and dancers' health.
The prevalence and clinical significance of sonographic tendon abnormalities in asymptomatic ballet dancers: a 24-month longitudinal study. Sonographic abnormalities of the achilles and patellar tendons are common findings in athletes, and tendinopathy is a common cause of pain and disability in athletes. However, it is unclear whether the sonographic changes are pathological or adaptive, or if they predict future injury. We undertook a cohort study to determine what sonographic features (...) followed for 24 months for the development of patellar tendon or achilles-related pain or injury severe enough to require time off from dancing.Sonographic abnormalities were common among dancers, both male and female, and in both achilles and patellar tendons. Disabling tendon-related symptoms developed in 10 dancers and 14 tendons: 7 achilles (3 right, 4 left) and 7 patellar (2 right, 5 left). The presence of moderate or severe hypoechoic defects was weakly predictive for the development of future
Motor Control and Low Back Pain in Dancers. Professional dancers suffer a high incidence of injuries, especially to the spine and lower extremities. There is a lack of experimental research addressing low back pain (LBP) in dancers. The aim of this study is to compare lumbopelvic motor control, muscle extensibility and sacroiliac joint pain between dancers with and without a history of LBP. 40 pre-professional dancers (mean age of 20.3 years) underwent a clinical test battery, consisting (...) of an evaluation of lumbopelvic motor control, muscle extensibility, generalized joint hypermobility, and sacroiliac joint pain provocation tests. Also self-reported measurements and standardized questionnaires were used. 41% of the dancers suffered from LBP during at least 2 consecutive days in the previous year. Only one dancer suffered from sacroiliac joint pain. Compared to dancers without a history of LBP, dancers with a history of LBP showed poorer lumbopelvic motor control (p<0.05). No differences

Participant numbers ranged from 52 to 58 (year 1: 52; year 2: 58; year 3: 53).The intervention consisted of individual conditioning programs developed using injury history and functional movement screening. Analysis was undertaken of the all dancers who were present in the company during the study period. The significance of change in injuries over a 3-year period was determined using a Poisson distribution model.To determine whether individual conditioning programs resulted in a decrease (...) in injury incidence over the study period.The injury count reduced significantly in years 2 and 3 (P < 0.001). Injury incidence for male dancers declined from year 1 (in year/1000 h) (4.76/1000 h) to year 2 (2.40/1000 h) and year 3 (2.22/1000 h). For women, a reduction in the injury incidence was observed from year 1 (4.14/1000 h) to year 2 (1.71/1000 h) and year 3 (1.81/1000 h).Through prospective injury surveillance, we were able to demonstrate the benefit of individualized conditioning programs based
