Performing Art Events:
It is common to see injuries arise as a result of repetitive choreography, stage surface and rake, costumes, props, repetitive instrument playing, changes in orchestra pit layout and seating position, or backstage/film/television set environments.

“I met Katy while headlining for the Broadway show ‘Burn the Floor.’She was brought in to provide injury prevention and care for the week we were in San Diego. I had hurt my hamstring. I was in a lot of pain, could barely move my leg and had been out of the show for 4 days. Katy truly was a miracle worker – she got me back in the show her first day with us! I was not only dancing, but my pain was reduced and my hamstring strength and flexibility increased even while doing 8 shows that week. Thanks Katy!”
