Performing Arts Physical Therapy

Performing artists are athletes in their own right. They challenge and push their bodies like any athlete, which means they are at greater risk of injury. Whether you’re a dancer, musician or another type of performer, Banner Physical Therapy is here to help treat any physical injury you may have and share methods for prevention in the future. 

What Is Performing Arts Rehabilitation?

Our performing arts physical therapy program was designed to support the physical demands of the performance artist by treating acute or chronic injuries, sharing protocols to prevent injuries and providing techniques for balance and strength.
