Ballet Injury Surveillance

In occupational epidemiology, when talking about musculoskeletal disorders, epidemiologists and other health professionals often think about heavy-duty jobs that could lead to a deterioration of human musculoskeletal structures. Unfortunately, most epidemiologic studies are done with their populations of particular industires. Rarely has the issue of musculoskeletal disorders among ballet dancers been studied in the long past or recently.
The purpose of this preliminary stage of case report would definately help guiding the future studies on behalf of the population of ballet dancers.
Your input is certainly valuable to me. It would be appreciated if you can spend some time filling the form as follows.
