 Summary for Poster:

In 2015, the Performing Arts Medicine clinic was established both at the University of North Texas Health Science Center and the University of North Texas campus. The clinic offers osteopathic approach to managing performance-related musculoskeletal injuries and sees up to 2,000 encounters yearly. While our clinical experience suggests that our osteopathic approach is impactful, we recognize the need to assess state of health and wellness of performers, and impact of our clinic. Using online and social media dissemination, we aim to use a Qualtrics Survey to collect demographics (including level of study), injury history, performer type, instrument(s) played for instrumentalists, practice habits, performer identity, performance anxiety, prior treatments, and self-care habits. Moreover, we aim to collect simple pain and symptom inventory and perceived influence on their performances with or without osteopathic medical care.
