If you are an injured musician, you are not alone!

Nutrition, hydration, stretches, exercises, postural changes, sleep and mental health all have massive effects on how you can feel, and sometimes small changes are all you need to feel a big difference.
We have seen musicians develop career-ending injuries that even we can’t heal, which is obviously catastrophic.
We may ask you to alter how you play and rehearse, but we realise you have a job to do.
The idea is play and rehearse smarter, not less.
And our idea of perfect posture is not what perfect posture is anyway!

Feel free to let us know when you think you won’t be able to to do them for whatever reason. Not doing them will increase the treatment frequency and treatment plan length.

It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, and your dedication to your wellness.
If it’s too hard or too soft always let us know; you’re the only one that can feel it.
The nature of the treatments usually mean that there is a little soreness on the table and afterwards, although once again it’s totally up to you.

It’s in a performer’s interest to invest in their health for longevity in a tough industry.
