Keep the Dancer Body in Peak Shape & Prevent Sports Injuries

Dancers make their living with their bodies. Though dance is often considered a more delicate pursuit, injuries are common, just as they are in football, basketball, and soccer. Dancers regularly push their bodies far beyond the limits of the everyday person. If they are in a production or in the midst of rehearsal, they have to push their bodies this way every day and every night, for extended periods of time. It can take its toll.  Torn knees, stress fractures, rotator cuff injuries, achilles tendonitis, broken ribs, and broken toes are distressingly common, and many dancers keep rehearsing and performing in spite of their injuries.

The movement that dancers are asked to do with their bodies can sometimes wreak havoc on the musculoskeletal structure. Neck injuries and meniscal tears in the knees can come from sharp changes of direction; extensive use of the arms (falling or lifting arms) may lead to rotator cuff injuries; and twisting or arching the back can lead to lower back strains and muscle spasms.

Chiropractic work can be a lifesaver for dancers and athletes of all kinds. Chiropractic adjustments will correct any misalignments in the spine and extremities to reduce pain and speed recovery time after sports injuries. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments can ensure the health of your spine and joints so that future sports injuries can be prevented. All athletes must care for their bodies in order to keep them functioning at optimal levels. With chiropractic, a dancer can be at their best, and pain free.
