Introduction: Several typical injuries due to breakdancing have been described in medical literature, but until now the "headspin hole" has not been mentioned.
Methods: We conducted internet research and interviewed 106 breakdancers.
Results: 60.4 % of the breakdancers suffered from overuse of the scalp due to the headspin. Loss of hair was found in 31.1 % and painless lumps on the head in 23.6 %. Inflammation of the scalp was reported in 36.8 %.
Discussion: The "Headspin Hole" is a common overuse syndrome of the scalp specific to headspins causing hair loss, inflammation and lumps on the skull.
