how to prevent over-use injuries.


Recommended Posts

Okay,i have a question, am i taking too many classes? There have been several over-use injuries at my studio :) .And i also have a question how to prevent over-use injuries from occuring? And how do over-use injuries occur? Is it by improper wam up or not using the right muscles? I just want to be extra extra careful this year because this is my first year of pointe. :party:


Currently i am taking 9 classes a week.

I am taking six technique classes a week each 1 hr.30mins.

2 pointe classes. This is not includeing rehearseal.

and one 2 hour jazz class


I love Ballet,and i love taking these classes,but is there ever TOO much?


Currently 13. :thumbsup::D

No, that's not too many classes. Now, are you doing too many things wrong in those classes, thus promoting overuse injuries, that's a different question, which would require a detailed observation in person over some time in order to answer.
