Our focus on the intricate nature of musculoskeletal injuries means that we are well suited to understanding and have a genuine interest in treating complex problems faced by those in the performing arts.
We regularly work with professional musicians, dancers and performers from all genres, so regardless of whether you are a drummer in a rock band or an A list actor, you can be assured of the best in care.
Performers often suffer in silence, frightened that their place can easily be taken by another but being a musician or dancer requires very similar discipline, training and stamina to that of an athlete and so it goes without saying that their bodies will suffer similar problems.
Sadly, promising careers are cut short by debilitating pain which can so easily be remedied if caught early.
Performing Arts Clinic Website
Aware that our performing arts clients have very unique needs, we have now created The Musicians’ and Performing Arts Injury Clinic website with this in mind.
Here you will find details of common injuries affecting, musicians, dancers, performers and support crew along with some useful tips to help you keep problems at bay.
We will bring you news and reviews on the latest research and treatment protocols in Performance Arts Medicine.
When therapy is required
Your performing arts career can demand a great deal from you, so it is imperative that you get the right advice and treatment and there are a number of ways we can do this.
Addressing a problem from every aspect is vital to allow you to continue rehearsing and performing at your best.
Prevention is always better than cure, so just like any athlete, regular check ups, massage and soft tissue work to release tight muscles and joints can avoid more serious problems.
Treatment and rehabilitation
When problems do strike, we have a number of treatment modalities available to us to aid your rehabilitation.
Our understanding of human biomechanics allows us to provide feedback on posture and gait.
This is particularly useful for young performers and beginners in the music and dance sectors, where a full musculoskeletal assessment and analysis can avoid little problems becoming bigger issues.
Specific exercise advice can be given to help improve practice and performance or assist rehabilitation.
We can advise on special breathing techniques.
Performing arts workshops allow us to work on site with complete orchestras and bands.
We want you to remember that there is no shame in a performer being injured or in seeking preventative treatments and there is no requirement for you to suffer for your art.
