It’s the start of a new year, and Dr. Kertz reminds you this month of the basics of good posture habits to help prevent potential injuries and problems caused by tension from things like hunching over the laptop, holding the cell phone too often, or holding your instrument incorrectly.
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.
