Samenvatting

This study was intended to be a systematic review of existing articles, focusing on the incidence and etiology of the most common musculoskeletal injuries in professional dancers. After a selection from an inclusion – exclusion criteria, twelve articles were selected to start the systematic review. Two of them were RCT’s and the other ten of a descriptive type. For the sake of specificity the two authors selected four body parts which, after reading the articles, seemed to be most prone to injury: ankle-foot, knee, hip and lower back. Their client, Angela Linsen (director of the dance department from the Amsterdam School of the Arts) suggested making a research at the school as well having the dancers as main subjects and using the same topic to be able of making a comparison with the rest of the articles. To analyze the data a validated questionnaire (SEFIP) was used to be filled in by every dancer. Conclusion(s): After analysing the selected literature it can be said that within the most injured body parts, the ankle and/or foot, followed by the knee, were the most common sites of injury. Overuse was by far, the most pronounced factor. Interestingly the same results were obtained in the study carried out by the two authors with the students of the Amsterdam school for the arts. Recommendations/suggestion for further research/projects We think that it is of utmost importance that health care providers invest more time in the realization of high quality RCTs and Systematic Reviews involving larger sample sizes in order to enable us physiotherapists to draw our own conclusions about the benefit and accuracy of making good diagnosis in order to obtain quick recovery for the dancers. The use of evidence based medicine is important for a conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of dance injuries. There for it is important to be up to date by applying external clinical evidence, invalidating previously accepted diagnostic tests and treatments and replacing them with new ones that are more powerful, more accurate, more efficacious, and safer.
