the majority of musicians suffer from musculoskeletal problems at some point in their career
Symptoms for guitarists include muscle or joint complaints (especially wrist pain and hand pain), numbness or ‘pins & needles’, inflammation, weakness, loss of control or movement, or simply general tightness and discomfort.
The hands, wrists and forearms are most commonly affected, but problems can arise in the elbow, shoulder or neck region, or even in the spine.
