An artist endures hours of intense training to achieve a flawless performance. The Performing Arts Medicine program is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of arts-related injuries. The individualized training programs are designed to optimize performance and meet the performer's unique demands.
This program was developed to increase performance in dancers, figure skaters, gymnasts, musicians, martial artists and other performing artists.
