After participating in this Symposium, attendees will be able to improve the care of performers and advance the work of performing arts medicine as a field by:
Identifying current practices in arts and entertainment leading to biomechanical problems that contribute to injuries in performing artists.
Applying emerging research and treatment options for common musculoskeletal and neurologic problems and identifying specific treatment implications for the performing arts clinician.
Incorporating wellness education and information about the potential physical/psychological risks of performance, particularly those risks related to participation in competitions, in the care of both student and professional performers.
