Harkness Center Offers Arts Relief, Including Free Injury Prevention Assessments and Virtual Telemedicine Visits

Take advantage of the Harkness Center’s range of offerings

The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries at NYU Langone Health is offering free arts relief to the dance community. Their Injury Prevention assessments aim to prevent dance injuries before they occur, by offering dancers a meeting with an athletic trainer or physical therapist – who observes a dancer’s technique, evaluates their strength and flexibility, and reviews their medical and nutritional history. Take advantage of these free sessions by making an appointment today.

For those needing physician or physical therapy appointments, Harkness offers virtual telemedicine visits featuring their team of dance medicine experts, for residents of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Florida.

In addition, Harkness Center’s Manhattan clinics are fully re-opened for in-person visits, and free Injury Prevention Assessments are offered in-person as well! Find out more here, and call the Harkness Center at 212-598-6054 or email harkness@nyulangone.org to make an appointment.
