Abstract

Overview: This symposium will present some of the current research from Australia on injury prevention in dance. Speaker SM (Chair) will introduce the topic and present on The Australian Ballet’s approach to injury prevention and outcomes. Speaker AJ will present her research on injury and training load in professional contemporary dancers together with preliminary information that may assist future research in the development of prevention programs. Speaker MF will present findings from her PhD research into injury surveillance and monitoring in a tertiary ballet and contemporary dance cohort, with discussion of the training related factors that may influence injury prevention. Speaker CH will discuss the implementation of a mindfulness intervention exploring perceptions and experiences, awareness, acceptance and holistic wellbeing with professional ballet dancers. Speaker SM will present data of a 5-year longitudinal study evaluating the risk of hip pain, cartilage defects and retirement in professional ballet dancers with generalised joint hypermobility. There will be time for questions and discussion following the presentations.
