Dr Davis' Back & Wrist Pain Blog: Playing a Musical Instrument can be Hazardous To Your Hands: "Playing a Musical Instrument can be Hazardous To Your Hands...

San Francisco Chiropractor and Carpal Tunnel Expert Comments: Playing a musical instrument requires repetitive movements of the hands and upper extremities...making musicians prone to carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries (RSI).

So...the question becomes: What can be done to reduce and prevent the chances of becoming a CTS or RSI victim if you are a musician? And...

What can you do once you develop symptoms? Well...I did a little research online...and I came up with a really good article entitled Hand Care For Musicians. Check it out...it has some really good information...including stretches and home care advice.

If you live in San Francisco and would like to find out if you are a candidate for care at our SF Carpal Tunnel injury Center...please call 415-392-2225 and ask for a complimentary CTS Evaluation."
