Practical Injury Management and Prevention Workshop
with Thanh Thi Tran
About the Workshop
A practical and ‘hands-on’ workshop providing you with an insight to how approach your injury and how to prevent injury in the future. There will be a large section on in person case study to take you through how to look and assess your form and what may be contributing to that ongoing niggly wrist. I will aim to show you how to look at the body as a whole so that you can apply it to your practice and apparatus.
For a wrist injury, you may also have to look at the shoulder, but sometimes it’s the hips as well.
Who is it for?
Professional circus performers (any discipline).
There will be 2 preselected case studies to assess and share in the workshop (please email ahead if you would like this to be you!)
You will need to bring any circus equipment that you use if you are being assessed on the day
8th April 2022
