After nine months of COVID, maybe you’ve found yourself playing your instrument a lot more than in years past and, as a result, perhaps you’re finding some repetitive motion-type pains and injuries in your body. If you’re going to a doctor for an end-of-year checkup, and you want him/her to look at your music performance-related injury, be sure to bring your instrument with you. In this month’s video Dr. Randy Kertz explains why.
Dr. Kertz’s monthly column addresses how musicians can avoid injury, how they can identify things they may do to cause injury, and offer general health information and tips for musicians of every instrument. Dr. Kertz is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and bassist in private practice in the Chicago area.
