ABOUT

PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR MUSICIANS

Injury and musculoskeletal conditions are common in musicians, often due to the physical demands of playing an instrument.  Specific movement patterns, the repetitive nature and postures required may leave the musician at risk of muscle imbalance and overuse conditions. Physiotherapy can help address underlying deficits in strength flexibility and motor control.
