Does over-turning cause any specific injuries?

Since we are getting so many questions lately I have decided to do a series of videos explaining them – rather than writing answers for all of them! The question answered in this video is about over-turning and related injuries:

Dear Lisa,

Any advice on how to get a very talented dancer to stop over rotating or over-turning his first position? I have serious concerns about his future if he continues to work in this fashion. Besides turning out too much he works with his arms behind him in second to help balance himself. Are there any specific injuries that could come his way because of this over-turning stance? Thank you for any advice you can give.

Natalie
