Title:
Can turnout measurements be used to predict physiotherapist-reported injury rates in dancers?
Authors:
Baker Jenkins, Jo; Wyon, Matthew A.; Nevill, Alan M.
Abstract:
Research has suggested that dancers may be more at risk of injury when they excessively utilise non-hip components of turnout to compensate for deficits in hip external rotation when trying to achieve maximal total turnout. However, recently different measures of turnout have been cited in the literature as well as suggestions for derived variables to account for shortfalls in particular components of turnout. This study aimed to assess whether measurements of turnout can predict the number of injuries (0 or 1 injury, or 2+ injuries) over a 10-month period.
