Performing Arts Rehabilitation

In 2010 after years of working with dancers and other artists/athletes in the performance world, Dr. Art Ando, Former Physical Therapist and Dr. Chris Koutures, MD joined together and created a medical network of providers who believe that healthy performers are the performers who ‘stay on stage’ longer. Their vision was to reach out to performers in the early stages of their careers and educate them on the tools they need to stay healthy and in peak performance condition.

They developed a consortium of providers in many disciplines: physical therapy, sports medicine, nutrition, massage, acupuncture, pilates and others. They achieved a protocol that can help the performing artis excel at their talents and stay on stage longer. This team approach also includes the parents, teachers, and instructors of the artist.
