Performing Arts Medicine
Performers, like athletes, depend on their body. Your body is the greatest tool you possess, and performers need to be at their physical peak in order to entertain and inspire audiences. Physical dexterity and freedom to use the full potential that your body has to offer are crucial to the craft of a performer. Injury or illness can be a devastating blow for a performer.
Whether it’s muscular strains and tendinopathies, minor injuries or severe incapacitations, any physical or psychological condition can affect your ability to perform at your best.
It is vital that your doctor understands the unique and complex medical needs of you as a performer. Continuing to practise your art whilst inflicted with injury can cause long-term damage and put you more at risk for future problems. A full Performing Arts medical assessment can help to limit your risk of injury and get you back on stage where you belong.
