Drummers and other musicians face a specialized set of physical challenges. Years of fine finger and wrist movement can set you up for repetitive stress injuries of the arm, and postural issues which can cause pain and numbness. These can become severe enough to compromise your ability to play, in turn impacting both your livelihood and your emotional well-being. I am happy to report that there is hope!
Acupuncture is extremely useful in treating injuries specific to musicians.
As a musician myself, I understand the physical impact of playing your instrument. I understand that professional musicians are much more similar to professional athletes than most people realize, and that adopting this view can help you to remain at the top of your musical game for years to come. I want you to be able to play your instrument for a lifetime, and I am here to guide you in your wellness and self-care. My main goal is to treat you for any acute injury, and then to teach you skills so that you can prevent any future injury.
