The recent pole dance fitness craze has taken a traditional strip-club act into the realm of sport and self-expression -- but as with any athletic activity, risk of injury is ever-present, especially when you're dangling upside-down by your ankles, four feet off the ground.

The dangers of pole acrobatics were made clear recently when a 32-year-old U.K. mother of two fell on her head while performing a trick, breaking her neck and severely damaging her spine, according to the U.K. press.

Debbie Plowman of Haxby, U.K., was no newbie. She had been pole dancing for two years and had performed the move that injured her, a cross-ankle release, many times before. She initially was paralyzed and now, nine months later, remains unable to talk or breathe on her own, though she has regained limited movement in her neck, shoulders and stomach, the U.K. press reported.
