In this month’s video, Dr. Randy Kertz discusses better health practices for musicians who play brass and woodwind instruments, specifically, posture. Posture plays a large part in effective breathing techniques, which affects stamina, tone, and playability. In short, if your posture is lousy, your breathing is not as effective.
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.
