Providing medical care to meet the special needs of performing artists
Performers, like skilled athletes, rely on physical dexterity and mental acuity to inspire and entertain audiences.
As a performing artist you may have experienced ailments or injuries such as tendonitis, focal dystonia, depression, stage fright, or problems surrounding your voice, hearing, joints, hormones, skin or teeth. Maybe you have even missed performances because of health issues.
