What is Performing Arts Medicine?
Performing artists have to deal with the effects of frequent practice and repetitive motions, inconsistent work environments, and high levels of stress from performances and auditions. It’s easy to get injured, and time lost to injury comes with a financial and emotional cost.
UR Medicine's Approach

- Sore joints and muscle cramps
- Trigger finger, tennis elbow, and bowler’s thumb
