Performance Arts Recovery Management

Dancers, musicians and singers in the performing arts industry have unique needs when it comes to injury rehabilitation. Our Performance Arts Recovery Management program is designed to assess, treat, rehabilitate and prevent the occurrence of a range of common and not-so-common conditions suffered by performance athletes (dancers), musicians and singers including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, jaw pain and other soft-tissue injuries.

What Can I Expect From The Performance Arts Recovery Program?

It will depend on where you are now and where your target is. Recovery is an individual progress, as each person recovers differently. Therefore the sessions are geared toward your pace.

For example, an advanced performer can expect to be training approximately 7–14 hours per week, on strength training, rehearsals and perhaps weekend performances. As the demand on your nervous system, soft tissue contents and mechanical structure is high, massage alone may be insufficient.
