HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY WHILE DANCING?
Dancers can perform hundreds of jumps in a single dance class, so it’s no surprise that knee pain is a common problem. Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your risk of developing a dancing injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression.
HOW TO TREAT A DANCING KNEE INJURY
- We recommend seeking treatment from a physiotherapist on treating a dancing injury. They may recommend one the following treatments.
- Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
- Jumper’s Knee. This is commonly known as Patellar tendonitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent knee pain.
