As a musician or a dancer, your mind, body and spirit must function as one.

Through frequent practice and repetitive motions, you run the risk of overuse injuries. You may find a medical problem impairs your ability to perform to your fullest potential. Promptly seeking care can mean a shorter recovery time and fewer long-term effects of an illness or injury.

In collaboration with Johns Hopkins Rehabilitation Network and the Peabody Institute, there is a multidisciplinary team of Johns Hopkins experts to deliver specialized care specifically for musicians and dancers.
