Treatments for Musicians and Dancers
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, the Center for Music & Medicine offers you a multidisciplinary team of Johns Hopkins experts to deliver specialized care specifically for musicians and dancers.
Why Musicians and Performers Choose Johns Hopkins
- Unmatched Expertise: The Center for Music & Medicine is a joint effort between two world-class institutions: Johns Hopkins Medicine and the Peabody Institute.
- Dual Perspectives: Pairing an understanding of musicians’ unique needs with expert health care provides a unique experience that offers you the best of both disciplines.
- Dedication to Improving Life: The Peabody Institute, a key partner of the Center for Music & Medicine, includes a community of artists, teachers and scholars who are dedicated to uplifting the quality of human life through the arts. Caring for musicians and ensuring their ability to perform is essential to this mission.
