Statistically, dancers are much more prone to overuse injuries rather than trauma. These injuries include, but are not limited to, stress fractures, tendon injuries, sprains, and strains. Keeping dancers free from injury is key to helping them enjoy a lifetime of physical activity and dance. Regular chiropractic care can serve as an incredibly useful and success asset to a dancer from beginning levels to the most elite level. Dr. Bucek gained first-hand experience working with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago.


Figure Skating

Figure skaters can suffer from both traumatic and overuse injuries. About half of all injuries due to overuse are preventable. Proper technique, properly fitted equipment, and blade placement as well as blade sharpness are all important aspects of figuring skating that, if ignored, can lead to injuries. An open line of communication between the skater and coaches as well as between the chiropractor, skater, and coaches can help lead a skater to be strong, healthy, and successful in the competitively demanding sport of figure skating.



Gymnasts must constantly prepare for the rigorous physical, mental, and emotional toils that the sport requires. With the complexity of the routines, the body is placed at risk. Most injuries can be prevented with proper training as well as proper preventative care. Not only can regular chiropractic care help prevent injuries but it can also aid in the recovery process of both traumatic injuries as well as overuse injuries.
