You love music.
You’ve watched many of your musician heroes out there playing the living hell out of an instrument to the point that it wails like no banshee has ever done before.
Somewhere in the back of your mind, you adopted these figures as a reference, as something to aspire to, as role models.
As such, you start feeling that it would be nice to play to that level, until one day you decide to go all-in: you get yourself an instrument and start practicing day in and day out.
That sounds great… up until the moment you hurt your wrist and get your arm confined to a cast for two months.
Broken armIn addition to hurting, you now have trouble doing your chores, maybe even working, which ends up being quite an expense…
Your case might not be so extreme, but are you already at risk of hurting yourself?
There is only so much punishment our bodies can take before snapping. Although it might seem that playing an instrument is fun, your body doesn’t understand fun – all it does know is contraction and relaxation of the muscles, together with tension in the joints and pressure in the cartilage.
This means that while you are having fun, your body is being exerted, and too much of a good thing usually ends up being pretty bad.
In this article, I’ll show you what you need to know about prevention of injuries while playing an instrument, including how to know when enough is enough, and how to push the envelope as safely as possible. https://www.musical-u.com/learn/how-to-avoid-guitar-injuries/
