The Houston, TX Ballet Showcase

Have you ever dreamed of being a dancer—a ballerina perhaps? The Houston Ballet is preparing to showcase the students of its professional training program — young men a women who are living their dancing dreams. The shows, to be held on April 26th and 27th, will showcase these talented individuals at the Wortham Theater Center in downtown Houston, TX.

If you decide to attend the show, pay close attention to the force placed on the feet of these graceful dancers. Injuries are very common, and the feet and ankles are under a lot of pressure with each leap and pirouette.

Tendonitis of the tibial tendon and the Achilles tendon are leading overuse injuries suffered by dancers. Long hours of training and dancing on hard dance floors are contributors to these conditions. Rest is a must for the proper healing of tendonitis, however, dancers often continue performing which worsens their pain.

The ankles are another area of concern. Improper landings can lead to a rolled ankle. The result is a lateral ankle sprain that involves tearing of a ligament. Posterior Ankle Impingement Syndrome is another dance related injury of the ankle. This is especially prevalent among ballerinas due to the amount of pointe work that is involved in their performance and training. The pain of this condition is felt around the heel and talus bone and the surrounding area.

Foot and ankle injuries may be a part of dancing, but foot pain doesn’t have to be a part of your everyday life. Podiatrist Marco Vargas looks forward to helping you end your discomfort. With three convenient locations: Missouri City, TX, Sugar Land, TX, and Houston, TX he and his friendly staff look forward to serving you. You can also schedule an appointment online.
