Books about Dance Injuries & Their Prevention
Posted 26 October 2002 - 10:54 AM
These are the ones I'm familiar with:
Dance Injuries: Their Prevention and Care
by Daniel D. Arnheim
The Dancer's Foot Book
by Dr. Terry L. Spilken
The Dancer's Book of Health
by L.M. Vincent, MD
Dancing Longer, Dancing Stronger
By Andrea Watkins & Priscilla Clarkson
These books are old (circa 1990) by medical standards. What, if any, are the newer ones? Are there magazines devoted solely to dance injury prevention? Are there catalogs targeted at dancers that sell products such as Therabands, balance boards, etc.? I know of one which I received years ago in the mail titled "Arts Care: The Dancer Health Care Catalog". It was chock full of products. I lost it though - don't know how to get a new one or if it's still in business.

For a list of professional periodicals devoted to dance injuries and related topics, see:
Click on the link "Research" and there is a pretty impressive list of professional journals.

Most importantly, I'd like to get step dance teachers to recognize this Our school is very conscientious but only because my daughter's a ballet dancer. Had I not been exposed to dance injury prevention through her, there's a lot I wouldn't have known.
We've had a physical therapist observe classes and then do a seminar at the school but I'd also like to be able to refer parents and teens to a list of publications.

Mel, I also checked out that book you mentioned and, while doing so, came across another book that really caught my eye: "Physics and the Art of Dance: Understanding Movement" Kenneth
Laws, Martha Swope (Photographer) It looks extremely interesting to me. Are you, or is anyone else here, familiar with it?
