Dr. Jennifer Crane is a physical therapist, athletic trainer, board certified
orthopedic specialist, and published author. She has worked in sports
medicine for nine years, with a wide variety of athletes and performing
artists throughout her career. In addition to specializing in circus arts,
she has also worked with Olympic athletes. In 2016, she lived in China,
working with the Chinese Olympic Teams in preparation for the Rio 2016
Olympics. Of the athletes she worked with, 18 of them went on to get an

Jen’s San Francisco practice is based at Circus Center, where she
specializes in injury prevention and treatment of circus artists. She
works closely with performing artists of all specialties and all levels, from
the brand new aerial student to professional acrobats, aerialists,
hand balancers, and contortionists. When she’s not working with circus
artists, she can usually be found standing on her hands, working on her
backbend, or spinning on a dance trapeze.
