Twirl, interrupted: Ballroom dancer finds graceful way to overcome chronic back pain
February 28, 2023
Kathleen Cunningham was a competitive ballroom dancer for many years, but acute back pain made it nearly impossible for her to keep moving to the music. So she turned to UT Southwestern's Spine Clinic and specialist Kavita Trivedi, D.O., for relief and some answers about "what to do now." Together, they partnered on a comprehensive spine care plan that includes physical therapy, an exercise program, medication, and targeted injections. And now Mrs. Cunningham is back on the dance floor and waltzing through life again – with grace and confidence.
