Overview

The energy required to create the kind of music that gives you chills or the dance performance that inspires you to try ballet requires hours of practice. All that practice sometimes leads to pain and injury. It could be a nagging ache in a pianist's thumb every time he practices, a singer's sore throat, or a stress fracture in a dancer. Seneca Storm, MD, from the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine addresses Performing Arts Medicine in this issue. Like any injury, it's important to treat it before it impairs or impedes a performance. Look for chapters on movement therapies, eating disorders in dancers and more.
