10 Tips on preventing musicians injuries!

  • Don’t skip the warm up
  • Video tape yourself performing – watch your posture
  • Don’t be macho – playing injured makes you look worse
  • Take a day off per week
  • Keep arms as loose as possible
  • Don’t over-grip your instrument – you’ll actually have more control
  • Ice your hands after every gig
  • Think twice before going rollerblading, painting, playing squash, skirmish or doing house renovations before a gig
  • Keep well hydrated – dehydration inhibits the healing process
  • Listen to your inner music and just chill out – meditate, practice yoga, get a massage, stretch, swim, read, anything – just reduce your stress!
