Common Dancing Injuries

Cynthia Laportilla, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says dancers suffer from hip, foot, ankle and knee injuries and stress fractures. However, foot and ankle injuries would be the most prevalent.
Male dancers suffer from hands and wrists injuries, because they have to do a lot of lifting and put stress on the hands and wrists.
The turnout position is when the ballerina stands with their legs in an externally rotated position: the knees, the feet and the toes point out towards the sides of the room.
