The Science beyond the Music & Medicine
Musicians are like athletes. Each pushes his or her body to perform at the highest level. Musicians must be careful to protect their bodies from the wear and tear of repetitive motion stress when practicing and performing. An understanding of how to avoid injury is vital for a musician's health and well-being. This seminar will offer musicians at all levels–professionals, amateurs and students–access to a certified Mercy Health Orthopedic physician who will, with a CSO musician's help, explain the intricacies of a musician's movement, proper posture, alignment, coordination and overall physical well-being while playing an instrument. This lecture demonstration format between a Mercy Health physician and a CSO musician will provide practical insights and answer your questions about how to stay at the top of your musical game.
