  1. hi, so i’m a competitive dancer that dances minimum 8 hours a week. about 4 months ago, in between my third and fourth toe started to hurt. this lead to swelling on top of my foot, in the affected area and my ankle, as well as pain in the top of foot, metatarsals, big toe joint and ankle. there was no bruising, but i’ve lost a bit of mobility in my metatarsals. because of this, i went to the doctor, who sent me for an x ray (which came back fine) and referred me to physiotherapy for extensor tendinitis. after twice a week for 8 weeks, physiotherapy didn’t do anything except make it worse. over christmas break, i took 3 weeks off, which didn’t help much. it still hurt when walking and was constantly sore and throbbing. my doctor then sent me for a bone scan (was which also came back fine) and referred me to a sports medicine clinic. the clinic hasn’t responded and it’s been almost a month. i recently went to a podiatrist who told me he didn’t really know what it was and “to rest if i felt i needed it”. are there any ideas as to what this could be? or how i can deal with it? our first competition is in a month. thanks, sarah
  2. Hello all, my son injured his hip in his JA class yesterday. He ‘heard’ a sound, then excruciating pain, then pins and needles hip to thigh for a few seconds. Dance teacher checked it and he carried on with class unable to do pirouettes, developpes, grand battements. Teacher didn’t tell me, he did about two hours after we got home. Today it is tight, but no big pain, just twinges if I press in. He has his preliminary audition for MA/WL on Sunday, I am at a complete loss as to know how to proceed with this next week, dance classes, daily exercises etc. audition attendance. Sorry for my ignorance, all I know for sure is I want him to be ok, I don’t care about the audition, he does obviously 🙄, but is there anything I should be doing other than making sure he rests up?? How long before he goes back to class etc, next class his on Tuesday afternoon. Should I let RBS know. I also as an aside feel really upset that the teacher didn’t let me know. 😔 Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated, I don’t want to make any mistakes as it’s his hip and dancing is his absolute passion. Thankyou.
  3. Hi I’m looking for recommendations for dance physios in the North West England as my DD is away at dance college in Preston, has a foot injury and would benefit from some expertise! Many thanks 😊
  4. Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone can help please. My daughter has injured her groin and needs to see a specialist dance physio. We would normally see the brilliant physio team at Tring Park where she is a CBA student. However they have broken up for the summer. Does anyone have any personal recommendations for us please. We live in Hertfordshire but London or anywhere within a hours travel would be ok. Thanks so much.
  5. Hi, my daughter has been advised to have a specialist dance Physio consult about her legs. She is hypo-extended and I think the rationale is to see her actual capabilities. We live Sheffield area but happy to commute up 1-2 hours. Thanks in advance 😃
