Prima or playoff, pointe or pads, bun or ball, these two unsuspecting art forms call for immense talent and drive. As it turns out, the injuries are similar for either sport:
Stress fractures, tendon injuries, sprains and strains – ballet isn’t easy, and neither is football. The most common injury areas are:
- Ankle sprains
- Knee injuries
- Hamstring injuries
- Hip injuries
- Back injuries
A lot of these can be solved with some RICE: Relaxation, Ice, Compression, & Elevation.
When it comes to the game, football player Steve McLendon acknowledges ballet is ‘harder than anything else I do’, but at the end of the day, it’s not about the injuries, it’s about the athlete and how quickly they can recover. Regardless of your sport, the products at AT Surgical will get you back in the game.
