Specialised assessment and rehabilitation for musicians in Brisbane

WHY PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR MUSICIANS?

Playing a musical instrument is not just an artistic, creative and passionate activity - it is also physically demanding. With extremely high repetition and unusual postural playing positions, your body is placed under considerable strain resulting in a high injury and pain rate across musician of all ages and playing abilities. Just like sport and dance, pain and injuries rates can be reduced with an understanding of how to get 'playing fit', appropriate warm ups, attention to playing technique and adequate recovery strategies. Musicians suffer a range of pains and injuries that need expert management understanding the physical and other demands.

Advice on rehearsal structure & load management

If you perform quite a lot, our physiotherapy service for musicians can provide advice on rehearsal structure, and the best load management tips specifically tailored for you.

"Musicians rarely suffer from acute high load injuries (when playing music anyway!!) It is the accumulative load sustained over years that can lead to a change in movement patterns, technique adaptations and a decrease playing performance. It is not only important to workout what is interfering with your playing but why it has happened. Our service of Physiotherapy for Musicians in Brisbane can look at how you hold and address the instrument, how much you play and how much you rest but also at your physical capacity for the load that you are putting on your body."
