The British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) is a healthcare charity helping performing arts professionals and students beat (and preferably avoid) work-related health problems, and dedicated to sharing knowledge about healthy practice.
They also deliver specialist training for doctors and other health care professionals, educators and professional bodies, and advocate for best practice throughout the performing arts.
BAPAM’s expert clinicians understand the demands of a performing arts career and give free medical advice about problems including playing-related injuries and pain, tension, hypermobility, voice problems, performance anxiety, and stress.
Clinical assessments are available in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Portsmouth.
BAPAM clinicians are from a range of backgrounds including general practice, physiotherapy, osteopathy, psychology, rheumatology, and orthopaedics.
