Dancing, especially ballet, places extreme stresses on a dancers body. The majority of injuries in dancers are overuse injuries which are often exacerbated by poor technique or technical errors. Injuries often occur when dancers are tired and under stress. Injuries often start out small, dancers interpret them as regular pain and due not seek treatment until the injury becomes serious and more difficult to treat successfully. Ballet dancing is escepcially prone to injury due to the 180º turn out of the feet, dancing on full pointe and the toe shoe.
