21 Mar Performing Artists Depend on Sports Medicine, Too
Sports medicine has played a significant role in the wellbeing of professional athletes – whether it’s football, soccer, even tennis. Like them, performing artists are equally pushing through chronic pains and injuries. Having an experienced team of sports medicine specialists by your side to diagnose and treat injuries can be beneficial in the long run. They will tend to your unique needs and ensure that you are given the resources and physical therapy needed to restore you to health.
More focus has been on the link between performing artists and sports athletes in the past few years. Both professions require long hours, extended seasons, and a strict routine. Several other ways they compare are as follows:
- Practice or perform daily
- Participate in competitions
- Go through life-threatening or career-changing injuries
- Have little time off to rest with limited “off season”
- Challenging environments
- Play through minor, painful injuries
At Premiere Chiro, our sports medicine doctors specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating any injuries associated with physical activity. Unlike other chiropractics, we use a multi-specialty approach that offers nutritional and other medical support to our patients. But you might be wondering how that would benefit you. Professional sports players have access to a helm of resources. Most professional sports teams sit down for a film review to determine if their players can modify their postures and play out on the field. A musician or actor is not afforded the same opportunity.
The most common medical issues presented to performance artists are often:
- Hearing loss
- Lack of nutrients
- Suffering from one or more musculoskeletal injuries
- Increased chance of spinal, knee, and leg pain
Intense training for long hours without chiropractic care can lead to a higher injury rate and longer recovery. If you live in the Los Angeles area and need medical support, give us a call.
