Injuries on Rise Among Young Dancers
from The Columbus Dispatch
Pirouettes, leaps and kicks can land a kid in the hospital. An increasing number of young dancers are being seriously injured, researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital discovered when they looked at a national database of emergency-department visits. Sprains, strains and injuries from falls are the most common dance-related problems seen in hospitals. Most of the patients are 15 to 19 years old.
