As part of our expertise in the treatment of performers, the physio team treats many musicians and instrumentalists including woodwind, brass and string instrumentalists and percussionists. We encourage that you bring your instrument to your consultation so that you can be thoroughly assessed whilst playing. This allows the physiotherapists to functionally assess your playing posture, limb movement, breath support and embouchure. We discuss your playing requirements and goals and establish the best possible treatment and rehabilitation plan.
