Our multidisciplinary approach is one of the most important aspects of our group. Patients receive personalized care from a team of experts that includes sports and performing arts medicine doctors, physical and occupational therapists, podiatrists, and nutritionists. We also offer injury prevention services including video capture motion analysis for dancers, musicians, and other performing artists.

Our team has extensive experience in caring for the performing artist community. Many of our clinicians are affiliated with or consult for organizations such as New York City Ballet, The Juilliard School, the International Association of Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS), Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA), Dance/USA Task Force on Dancer Health, Jacob’s Pillow and Miami City Ballet.
