Conditions affecting the ears, nose, throat, and respiratory system can greatly impact all musicians. All performers should take care of their bodies and be aware of conditions that can permanently affect their ability to perform.
Allergy & Pulmonary Conditions
Shortness of breath, asthma and chronic cough are the main areas of concerns for performing artists. These conditions can affect actors, singers and dancers. Sculptors and painters might be at risk of being exposed to different types of chemicals and toxins.
More information on these conditions can be found at UW-Health’s Website.
