Back Pain Isn’t Music To Their Ears

A recent study conducted in Germany shows that classical musicians are twice as likely to suffer from serious backache as other professionals, with 70% having spinal problems. More than 3,000 musicians from 40 orchestras around the country were interviewed for the research. Professional musicians very often suffer from pain and limited movements in the shoulder and neck regions. The demands musicians make on their bodies are similar to the stresses endured by top-level athletes. If you play an instrument be careful that you head and neck are properly aligned. Ask your chiropractor for preventive techniques and see him or her if problems develop.
