Common Knee Pain in Dancers

2019-10-29T15:04:03-06:00

Four Common Knee Problems for Dancers As part of "The Healthy Dancer" Fall 2019, please contact us if you want a copy sent to your dance organization, studio, or team. Dancers train for the perfect splits, amazing turnout, powerful jumps, high kicks, and quick turns making knee pain common for dancers. Some knee injuries can be very serious and require medical intervention. Other knee problems can be managed or avoided with proper technique and training. Hyperextension Knee hyperextension occurs when the knees pass straight and begin to bend the other direction. This is common practice for dancers because it can make for longer, cleaner lines, however, it can cause strain and injury.  Dancers should first focus on proper technique without gripping the quadriceps muscles. Think of lengthening instead of locking the knees. Remember that each body is different and it is important to find your healthy neutral. Over Turn-out Forcing turn-out will apply pressure on your inner knees. Focus on hip flexibility. Make sure you are not rolling in on your feet and that your knees are over your toes when you plie or land a jump. When you are not dancing, do not walk around with your legs turned out ( Be sure you are not walking like a duck.) Falls This pain will be immediate. Any  serious fall should be iced immediately and examined by a professional for proper diagnosis to rule out meniscus and ligament tears that may require surgery, especially if there was twisting, overextension, or a popping sound. You may need to take time off [...]

Golfer’s Elbow

2019-02-27T11:29:22-06:00

Most of the muscles that flex your wrist are attached to a bony bump on the inside of your elbow called the “medial epicondyle.”  Sometimes, through injury or overuse, the site where these muscles originate can become irritated or inflamed. This condition is called “medial epicondylitis”, or “golfer’s elbow.”   Although the condition is named [...]

Lumbar Stenosis

2021-01-25T17:34:16-06:00

The term stenosis means “narrowing” of a tube or opening.  Spinal stenosis means that the tube surrounding your spinal cord and nerve roots has become too small, and your nerves are being compressed.  Stenosis can arise in different ways.

Low Back Sprain/Strain

2019-02-27T11:28:32-06:00

Your “lumbar spine”, or low back, is made up of five bones stacked on top of each other with a shock-absorbing disc between each level.  Your low back relies on muscles and ligaments for support. “Sprains” and “strains” are the result of these tissues being stretched too hard or too far, much like a rope [...]

Lumbar Arthritis

2019-02-27T11:27:31-06:00

Your lumbar spine (low back) is made up of 5 individual vertebrae stacked on top of a bone called the “sacrum”.  To allow for flexibility and movement, there is a cushion or “disc” in between each level. As we age, these discs can wear and become thinner over time.  This leads to additional changes, including [...]
