The effects of dance injuries are often devastating. Not only are you injured and must heal, but you are forced out of the game. Rehabilitation may follow corrective surgery or non-invasive measures.
Your body responds differently to injuries. In the same way, you need a customized exercise regimen and rehabilitation plan because your body heals differently. Providing a rehabilitation plan tailored to your specific needs and challenges requires a dance / sports injury clinic to have the knowledge, equipment, and methods available. You can get back on the road to strong health and recovery with the help of your physical therapy practice.
During the various phases of your rehabilitation, your physical therapist will recommend specific programs and treatments for dance and sports injuries. Which ones we choose together will depend on many factors, including your age, general health, the type of injury, and your treatment goals.
Dancers are prone to injuries of the lower body. Hip impingement injuries may result from repeated movements with one body part, leading to inflammation of the tendons.
The most common type of stress fracture is found in the foot. These fractures are caused by overuse primarily from landing or movements during relief.
When treating dance and sports injuries, it is imperative to begin rehabilitation as soon as possible following the initial inflammatory stage. When suffering from an injury, you may fall into poor habits that hinder your ability to heal and recover. If, for instance, you hurt one leg, favoring the other can result in other injuries or even a permanent limp in the future. There are many symptoms and medical conditions that can be treated with physical therapy, including:
- Swollen muscles
- Stretched or strained tendons or ligaments
- Knee injuries, physical therapy exercises for knee pain are recommended
- Ruptured tendons
If you return to dancing before you have fully recovered, you are at increased risk of recurrent or subsequent injury, so be sure to be fully recovered before you begin training at full capacity again. Practicing mindfulness and listening to your body is now very important.
