Chris Blackburne works with many performing artists including professional dancers and acrobat/trapeze artists treating biomechanical pain and injury. He is based at Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic, London SW3 3DH.

"Over the last 10 years I’ve specialised in pain, injuries and dysfunction in the body’s Musculoskeletal System: bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue.

My passionate continuous research focuses on in-depth understanding of the context and causes of the injury or chronic disease in my field of expertise.

Through my personal 20 years of practicing Martial Arts (Wing Chun Kung Fu) and years of working with popular dance companies, ballets, circus and professional sports people - I understood that physical pain and discomfort is never that simple if the goal is to bring musculoskeletal system back to full working capacity.

Classic medical diagnostics strengthened by a functional medicine approach gives forward thinking osteopaths now great tools to identify both intrinsic causes and factors of the health problem, whether they are physical, environmental, psychological or nutritional.

Only working closely and attentively together with the patient, we may ensure highly tailored treatment programs, its successful implementation and long lasting results."

I am an Osteopath inspired by the voice and experienced helping professional voice users overcome issues related to misuse and injuries. As an Osteopath with nearly thirty years of experience, as well as being a trained opera singer, I have the skill, insight and understanding to help performing artists including singers, actors and dancers. I can help with voice problems including hoarseness, loss of vocal range, vocal fatigue and muscle tension dysphonia. I am experienced with shoulder issues as well as more typical issues such as back and neck pain, knee injuries, foot injuries, ACL injuries, mobility issues that osteopaths are trained to treat. I also have special interests in hypermobility and in hip impingement issues (cam and pincer) and have worked in facilitating diagnosis of labral tears and rehabilitating patients post operatively following hip arthroscopy intervention. Labral tears are often missed, especially in the hypermobile population, who may be more likely to experience impingement due to their increased range of movement, especially if they are dancers or acrobats and routinely flex their hip joints to the extreme.

Leanne O'Brien is a Specialist Women's and Men's Health Physiotherapist with experience in treating a wide range of pelvic floor issues and musculoskletelal pain (including pregnancy and post-natal rehab, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and post-operative rehab). She has over 13 years experience, and has worked in both the NHS and privately, including work in a gait lab, rehabilitating runners and athletes back to sport.

Leanne works closely with dancers, musical theatre and actors. Having studied ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz and street dance, Leanne has great insight into the demands that dance places on the body.  This background has allowed her to rehab dancers back to full fitness following injury, surgery or pregnancy.  She offers acupuncture, pelvic floor re-education (kegel exercises, real-time ultrasound, biofeedback and muscle stimulation), pelvic floor manual therapy, a return to sport or performing arts postnatally, massage (including scar massage), and reformer pilates training (including pregnancy and postnatal). One of Leanne's specialist interests is the relationship between the diaphragm and the pelvic floor, which is a key area to address in brass players, including throughout pregnancy and into the postnatal period. She also gives hernia advice pre and post operatively, to patients (both men and women) who've had repairs or are trying to treat their issue conservatively.

"My passion for Women’s and Men’s health started when I realised that my female athletes needed a more in-depth level of care. My passion has spiraled from there and I’ve worked as a specialist physiotherapist in both the NHS and private practice. I’m incredibly passionate about returning people back to activity and enabling them to achieve their goals".

Zoltan Zavody is a musician and martial artist who understands the range of injuries, impediments to joyful play(ing), and pain that can result from soft tissue conditions and muscular imbalances. He specialises in helping performers with pain and tension release, injury rehabilitation, pre- and post-performance MOT, and structural alignment. Zoltan sees clients in Central and South-East London – Monument, Rotherhithe, Canada Water and Clapham.

"I'm a fully qualified, professional Clinical Massage Therapist. I am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), and the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM).

I treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, and the connective tissue that binds these all together. Treatment may be to address a specific pain or injury; an area of tightness or inflexibility; or a more structural issue of constriction or misalignment. It may also be in preparation for an event or performance, for example to ensure that muscles are all working smoothly; or after such an event, quickly to flush out waste products and relax stressed muscles, for rapid recovery.

Through an understanding of the daily reality of trying to train and perform with pain or injury,  I can support you with a realistic rehabilitation programme to return you to performing at your best.

I believe in continuity of professional healthcare. So we will not just give you a massage and send you on your way "hoping it worked". First we will look at the cause of any muscular or structural imbalance, and afterwards we will develop a potential rehabilitation programme that may involve exercises, stretching, or just subtly different ways of moving. I will support you with any rehabilitation work in between sessions. And where massage alone is not enough, we will discuss other treatments you might usefully explore."

Alison Judah is a consultant osteopath who practices in Hammersmith, West London and in Hove East Sussex. She qualified in 1992  from the London School of Osteopathy with a Diploma in Osteopathic Medicine and then from Kingston University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Osteopathy. She undertook a Post-Graduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopath at the Osteopathic Centre for Children. Alison has undertaken further training in the specialist area of caring for performing artists including the voice.

SPECIALIST OSTEOPATH TO THE PERFORMING ARTS

MUSICIANS
Alison helps many musicians by diagnosing the cause of their injuries, assessing them with their instrument  rehabilitating them back to fitness and advising on furture injury prevention.  Where it is possible musicians should bring their instrument with them to the appointment. Ergonomic assessments can also be carried out in a performance space. Musicians have busy schedules and she can arrange private MRI  scans and xrays where necessary so as to get a diagnosis quickly and get them back to performing as soon as possible.

OSTEOPATHY FOR THE VOICE 

Singers, Actors, Teachers and other Professional Voice Users
Performers need their voice to be agile, the delicate muscles surrounding the vocal cords need to be balanced as do the muscles of breathing.  The voice can also be affected by other mechanical strains in the body. Alison will do a full assessment to establish the cause.  If it is due to a mechanical strain then osteopathic treatment can help or osteopathy can help with rehabilitation back to fitness after other treatment is necessary such as surgery. Alison works with both Professional and Amateur Singers and Actors to help them carry on working without injury. She has undertaken specialist training in Laryngeal Manipulation and Performing Arts Medicine. With a busy schedule and often a stressful environment teachers and public speakers often aren't aware that they are straining the voice and body and teachers in particular often end up damaging the voice.

Symptoms of Voice Problems May Include:
Tightness in throat
Voice cutting out at points
Restriction in chest
Back or neck pain
Alteration in quality of voice
Breathing Problems

It is of course always important to check that voice problems are not due to a more pathological cause for which further medical investigations may be necessary.  Alison always carries out a full examination and will assess your condition if you need further examinations or medical tests she will refer you to the most appropriate specialist.

ACTORS
Actors often have to wear heavy costumes, work in awkward poses and carry heavy props all this can cause strain.  Alison can help with treating the cause of the injury and with advising on injury prevention.

CAMERA OPERATORS AND OTHER PRODUCTION TECHNICIANS
The use of cameras can cause strain to the neck and back leading to nerve impingement, pain and tingling in the shoulders, arms and hands.  Any symptoms experienced should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent long term damage.

CLINICAL AND OCCUPATIONAL
Alison has been working in private practice for over 25 years.  She has also worked with GPs in Sussex and London and worked as a Paediatric Osteopath at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in London seeing very complex cases. The experience she has gained allows her to diagnose and treat extremely complex problems and Alison is often referred cases where people have previously seen many health professionals. She has clinical experience in treating the specific needs of performing artists and the specialist area of voice problems.  Alison also advises companies and organisations on injury prevention and carries out clinical ergonomic assessments in many different environments.

ALISON OFFERS:
Consultations for Advice on Posture and Injury Prevention
Understanding of the needs of Performing Artists
Advice/ Treatment for professional and Amateur Performers
Treatment for singers with muscular / joint strain affecting the voice

Nicky trained at the Arts Educational School, Tring Park and the London Contemporary Dance School. She performed professionally for 15 years with many leading international choreographers including Aletta Collins, Charles Linehan, Martin Lawrance and Jasmin Vardimon. Nicky performed at Sadlers Wells’ first ever Breakin’ Convention, and appeared in BBC2’s Dance for Camera film, The Lift. During her professional dance career she was described as ‘mesmeric and fascinating’ by the London Evening Standard, and ‘powerful and stately’ by The Times.

Nicky has taught at many of Britain’s leading dance institutions including The Royal Ballet School (White Lodge), Central School of Ballet and Elmhurst Ballet School. She led the Contemporary and Choreography courses at English National Ballet School between 2005 and 2009, with her students winning several international contemporary dance prizes under her tutelage, including The Prix de Lusanne & Beijing International Ballet Competition. The Dancing Times declared her a ‘superb teacher’.

In 2005 Nicky qualified as an osteopath at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. After graduating Nicky accepted the job of Anatomy Lecturer at the London Contemporary Dance School, a post she held for seven years, and she continued to be their in house osteopath for a decade. As well as running a busy osteopathy practice Nicky is also regularly in demand by international dance and theatre companies; she was lead therapist on both series of the BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance and ITV’s Let’s Get Gold, and is Richard Alston Dance Company’s osteopath. In March 2016 Nicky had the honour of being invited to be part of a group of ‘Inspiring Women in Dance’ at Sadlers Wells theatre.

Aside from dance, Nicky has experience in martial arts, circus skills, climbing, running and gymnastics. She has a vested interest in optimal biomechanical functioning and myofascial release techniques (including myofascial dry needling) and always focuses on identifying the cause of pain opposed to simply treating symptoms. Nicky is also part of the Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) team at the London Contemporary Dance School where she has been instrumental in devising screening protocols, training and treatment for elite level adolescent dancers.

Watch an interview with Nicky about hypermobility at Dance UK’s The Future: New Inspirations conference 2015, here.
