I’ve never thought about a preseason workout regimen for a professional musician, however I have taken care of many of them with very individual needs.

Whether it was the amateur pianist who fell and tore his triceps or the professional guitarist with a clavicle fracture right before he went on tour, upper extremity injuries are hard to recover from when your livelihood or passion depends on them.

Everyone should exercise with their job and hobbies in mind. Keeping postural muscles in your core and upper back strong is a first step. Addressing aches and pains early is equally important. Finally, if you are recovering from a traumatic injury, make sure to follow a graduated return to activity – guided by an experienced physical therapist.
