Hip Injury Prevention





Hi there! So you may not know this, but I am an Irish Step Dancer, and I have done all kinds of dance styles for my entire life. Over the years I have occurred many injuries (luckily none too serious), but one injury I seem to find most prelevant in not only myself, but in other dancers is hip injuries. We dancers are constantly using our hips while dancing, so many of times, our hips will get injured, and it is no fun! The problem is, is that we tend to ignore these injuries because they do not seem as serious, and we end up just walking them off or taking a break from dance. However, these injuries are very serious, and can lead to very serious problems like Osteoarthritis, which would lead to hip replacement surgery. But fret not! There are very simple ways you can prevent these injuries! I put together this video for a science fair project this year, and I wanted to share it with you all so you can watch it and learn some quick and easy ways to help prevent injuries!
Enjoy!!
