Youngsters being swept along by the surge in interest in dance and acrobatic troupes from shows such as Britain’s Got Talent are being warned they risk serious injury by not taking expert advice to protect their bodies.

You don’t have to channel surf for too long to find a TV talent show featuring the best of Britain’s amateur performers while movie goers have put Streetdance 3D to the top of the cinema charts.

The trend has made household names of groups like Diversity while this Saturday’s final of Britain’s Got Talent will see spectacular acrobatic group Spellbound aim for glory.

Whilst this may encourage youngsters to live out their dreams of stardom, concern is being raised that they need to also think about the immense pressures that these talented performers put their bodies under on a daily basis and how this translates to young and not yet fully developed bodies.

Led by physiotherapist Kirsten Lord, The Physiotherapy Centres, with bases in Edinburgh and Glasgow city centres, work with numerous young performers to help them to keep their bodies healthy and prevent long term problems developing.

The full story can be read on the Holyrood Partnership PR in Scotland website.
