Free Injury Screening Session for NEC Students
Similar to elite athletes, musicians work their bodies by putting in many hours of practice to hone their skills as instrumentalists and vocalists. Like athletes, musicians can experience performance related injuries caused by muscle tension, repetitive motions, and improper technique, all which can be worsened by stress, fatigue, and demanding class and performance schedules. Many of these injuries are preventable when recognized and treated before they become major obstacles to practice and performing.
The NEC Health and Counseling Service supports taking a proactive role in performance health and wellness and will offer two injury screening sessions in September of 2014. These sessions, provided by occupational and physical therapists specializing in the care of the performing artist, are designed to provide students with the tools that they need to recognize the warning signals of an injury and tips for injury prevention.
