CEU Course Description

Dance participation, through its athletic nature can introduce risk of injury, but unlike sports, is not always recognized that specialist medicinal provision will assist in the mitigation of that risk.  This CEU course examines the extent of injury in dance participation and the impact that specialist dance medicine provision has on overall dance injury incidence, determines the effects of a ballet class on the levels of inflammation markers, and reviews the development and evaluation of a dancer wellness program.


CEU Course Objectives

  1. Explain the hypothesis for exercise-induced apoptosis.
  2. Investigate the most important cause of increased arthritis and arthrosis in ballerinas.
  3. Examine the recommendation for the use of comprehensive medical management for the reduction of injury rate in dancers using the GRADE framework.
  4. Identify the first cells to migrate to the site of injury and are responsible for local cleaning, phagocytosing pathogens, and removing cellular debris.
  5. Describe when further medical evaluation is recommended for any dancer.
