Chiropractic Care for the Dancer

By Donna Stark

From the moment we were able to stand on two feet and bounce up and down, we have been able to understand and experience the pure joy that can come from dancing. Dancing awakens the soul, and whether we are doing it for ourselves or performing for others, there is no way to escape how it makes us feel. It is the true definition of art and beauty, and it encompasses a wide variety of styles. Graceful and quiet, or loud and aggressive, the many different forms of dance can certainly range from one extreme to the other, but what they all share in common is the stress and strain that is placed on the dancer's body.

Chiropractic Care for the Dancer

Dancers train and work their bodies just as hard as any professional athlete does, and although their movements on stage may appear to look refined and effortless, don't be fooled. They face just as much muscle soreness, pain, and injuries behind the scenes as those top-tier athletes do; fortunately, chiropractic care can help! If you are a dancer, you may want to consider adding chiropractic care from The Joint Chiropractic to your health and fitness routine. Here's why.

  • Places the body's joints in proper alignment
  • Alleviates pain and discomfort
  • Improves strength and muscle function
  • Reduces added stress on weight-bearing joints
  • Improves overall joint function
  • Speeds the healing and recovery process of injuries
  • Reduces the risk of future injuries

But Wait, There's More!

In athletics, there is often an off-season for each individual sport, but not so much for dancers. Their schedule can go year-round and that can easily increase their risk of injury. It's important that dancers take care of their body outside of the chiropractic office as well. Here are some areas to focus on that will help a dancer's body stay healthy and strong.

  • Core-strengthening exercises
  • Aerobic conditioning
  • Balance training
  • Healthy diet
  • Adequate sleep
