Jen Crane is a nontraditional physical therapist, to say the least. As a dual credentialed physical therapist and athletic trainer, she’s spent most of her career working with athletes and performing artists, from recreational acrobats to olympic gold medal divers and weight lifters. Currently, she operates her clinic out of the San Francisco Circus Center, where she specializes in assessment and treatment of circus artists. In addition to treating patients, she also contracts with Cirque du Soleil, and travels worldwide to teach circus arts instructors and students how to protect their bodies to maximize performance and train unencumbered by injury.
When she’s NOT working as Cirque Physio, Jen spends most of her time training and performing as a circus artist. Current disciplines include single point trapeze, handbalancing, and dance.
