    Dr. Jennifer Crane is a physical therapist, athletic trainer, board certified orthopedic specialist, and published author. She has been a sports medicine professional for eight years, and has worked with a wide variety of athletes and performing artists throughout that time. Most recently, she worked as a physiotherapist living in China with the Chinese Olympic Teams in preparation for the Rio 2016 Olympics. While in China, she worked with multiple sports teams: diving, weight-lifting, fencing, gymnastics, synchronized swimming, and track and field. Of the athletes she worked with, 18 of them went on to get an Olympic gold medal in Rio. Now happily back in San Francisco, Jen's practice is based at Circus Center, where she specializes in injury prevention and treatment of athletes and performing artists.  When she's not working with circus artists, she can usually be found standing on her hands, swinging on flying trapeze, or spinning on a single point trapeze. acrolibrary.com/cp
