Why dance poses are more dangerous than other poses
Dance poses can be dangerous, especially for those who do not know how to properly hold them, said Dr. Dara Dornan, an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the prevention and treatment of spine injuries.
Dr. Dornannan, who is also an associate professor at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, told CNN that poses like dancing, acrobatics, and body flapping, can cause significant spinal cord injuries.
She added that even though the risk of injury is very low, the consequences can be dire, especially when they are sustained for long periods of time.
“The more you practice these poses, the more likely you are to develop a spinal cord injury,” Dr. Ramiro Dornans said.
“These poses can cause permanent damage to the spine.”
Dr. Razi El-Fadl, a spine surgeon and associate professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, told CNN that the risks of dancing pose, including a person’s inability to keep the pose in mind and to focus on it, were also serious.
“People often perform these poses for fun and to get high,” he said.
“In a lot of cases, this can lead to more serious injury and even death.”
Dr El-Razza, who specializes, in treating spinal injuries, also said that many of these poses are “not good for the spine,” and that the body needs to be able to rest its muscles.
He said that there were times when performing these poses can make it more difficult for the person to sit up straight, which can make for a less pleasant experience.
“It’s important to be aware of how your body is functioning and what’s going on in your body,” Dr El-Tahy said.
Dr. El-Dorado, who also teaches orthopedics, told CBS News that people who practice these movements can get back into the same poses.
“But the more you learn how to sit in a good posture, the better,” he explained.
“This is an extremely important and critical area to be mindful of, and if you can do it, you can get better,” Dr Dornanan said.
There are several other studies that show that dancing poses can result in severe spinal injuries.
A study published in the American Journal of Spine in December found that those who performed a dance pose for three minutes on their legs or arms for 30 seconds a day for five months were significantly more likely to develop spinal injuries than those who practiced a different posture.
Researchers also found that people with a history of back injuries were at a higher risk for developing spinal injuries when performing a pose.
In an online survey conducted by the University at Buffalo School of Sports Medicine, the researchers found that the participants who had experienced a neck injury had more severe spinal cord damage than those that did not.
The study authors did not identify the specific pose the participants were performing.
