Chiropractic Care for Musicians
Serious musicians can run into a lot of physical problems. Many of those problems involve posture, nerves, aches, and pain. These issues may affect their livelihood, their passion, their purpose, their dreams. Whether it’s neck and shoulder pain from playing the drums or guitar, low back pain from sitting at a piano, or tendonitis of the wrist and elbow from practicing, you can’t let it prevent you from playing.
