A Message From Dr. Sharmaine Longsworth, Owner & Founder Of Physiophyx Physical Therapy

Performing Arts Injury Rehabilitation

Ignoring an injury from performing arts and attempting to push through the discomfort is tempting, but seeking professional evaluation is crucial.

Alternatively, feeling trapped and uncertain about your ability to perform or stay active in your artistic endeavors is understandable…

If you’re experiencing this, you’re not alone; it’s a common challenge we encounter daily at Physiophyx Physical Therapy . Whether it’s during rehearsals or performances, our Saginaw, Texas center sees artists seeking relief from performing arts-related injuries.

We believe it’s counterproductive when medical professionals advise solely “resting” for injuries. This approach often weakens muscles and increases the risk of future injuries. That’s why many individuals suffering from performing arts injuries ask themselves:

"Why Am I STILL Dealing With An Injury That's Hindering My Performance And Favorite Activities After Months?"
Many wrongly assume a few days of rest will suffice to heal their injury and allow them to resume their artistic routine. However, upon returning to performance, they often experience heightened discomfort. While rest may offer temporary relief, resuming artistic activities often brings back the discomfort, regardless of breaks taken.
Does That Sound Familiar?

A common scenario in our clinic is when artists visit a doctor, receive advice to rest, wear supports, and take pain relievers. Yet, weeks later, they return in agony, only to receive further prescriptions for stronger medications.

The problem with solely resting is that it’s not always the best solution. If you’re frustrated by conflicting advice and misinformation, know that you’re not alone. It’s easy to mistake a back injury for a hip problem due to shared symptoms.

Performing arts injuries may be misdiagnosed, as pain often originates from a different area than the actual injury site. Prolonged rest may weaken other body parts, making them vulnerable to injury.

Unfortunately, uncertainty around “resting” often leads to procrastination and avoidance of decisions that could facilitate healing and return to regular artistic activities. Many resign themselves to inactivity, considering it normal or inevitable.
