Performing Arts Medicine

Ballet DancerThe Performing Arts Medicine program is a comprehensive program within our Functional rehabilitation program designed specifically for young performing artists of all genres from dancers to musicians. From the initial visit with one of our physicians to progression through Functional Rehabilitation, the focus is to return your young performer to the stage. The rehabilitation is provided by licensed athletic trainers and also takes into account any deconditioning that may have taken place. We also look at the patients functional mechanics for any unnatural compensation and make sure corrections are made to prevent re-injury.

Some of our specific services for dance include:

  • Pointe readiness screenings
  • Pointe shoe fitting
  • Injury prevention screenings
  • Injury prevention classes
