Common Performing Artist Injuries
As a performing artist, you’re aware of the amount of stress that you often put on your joints. Performers often put their bodies through a great deal. Dancers, for example, are at a higher risk of muscle strains, inflammatory issues, and tendinitis due to severe joint stress and repetitive motions. Actors, who are often on their feet for long periods or who must stand or walk in awkward positions, put extra strain on their back, feet, and weight-bearing joints.
