Join neurologist Michael Charness, MD and physical therapist Regina Campbell for a participatory session on performance injury prevention and wellness strategies for musicians. Dr. Michael Charness is a board-certified neurologist and internist who has been treating instrumental musicians for more than 25 years. Regina Campbell founded Performing Arts Physical Therapy in 1996 to provide specialized care to musicians and for general orthopedic upper extremity injuries. Regina's background includes 14 years of work experience at Brigham and Women's Hospital where she gained exposure to a variety of medical, surgical, neurological, oncology, and Ob-Gyn conditions. Dr. Charness will spend the first part of the workshop lecturing on “Growing the Brains and Preserving the Chops of Performing Artists”, and Regina Campbell will follow, leading a participatory session with warm up and cool down techniques, as well as demonstrating appropriate stretching exercises for specific muscle groups.
