Up Your Dance Game With Chiropractic

By Genevieve Smith

Ballet dancers undeniably have it rough. Have you seen Black Swan? Yeah, it gets intense. These are the athletes who keep going even when it hurts, even when something’s sprained or broken. This is also the sport in which one major injury can knock a competitor out of the game for good. Due to the rigorous training and requirements of dance companies, taking a break for more than six months can make a major impact on a ballerina’s career. Can chiropractic be the winning ingredient to keep dancers out of surgery and on the stage?

Avoid Bunions and Arthritis

Bunions are common, painful, and avoidable. They need not get to the point where they kick you off stage, according to chiropractor to the ballerinas, Dr. Camilla Ellis, DC. Bunions most often stem from misaligned joints, and combined with an intense regimen of jumps and kicks, bone will grow in the wrong direction. If left untouched, bunions can exacerbate arthritic symptoms. However setting the bones straight can halt the process before it gets too painful.

Ward off Bone Spurs

Bone spurs also arise in the world of ballet. Coming out of intense pulling on the bone in places it is not normally stretched, joints can be tweaked out of alignment in areas of overuse, and the body can begin to deposit new bone in its place. Keeping joints and bones in alignment can prevent spurs from growing.  

Keep Your Career Strong

The key to longevity is catching painful symptoms early. Issues arise when light injuries are left unchecked and exacerbate. Many dancers do not realize that chiropractic is available to them. Oftentimes, they turn to a primary physician too late, and receive a recommendation for surgery. The surgical path can often take a ballet dancer off his or her feet for good, but preventative chiropractic can keep them dancing.
