In this webinar, musician-physiotherapist and PhD candidate Marianne Roos will share key insights into preventing and treating musicians’ occupational problems.
Although musicians may seem comfortable on stage, musculoskeletal injuries and mental health problems affecting their capacity to perform are highly prevalent. Growing amounts of research have attested to this fact, but adapted resources and healthcare professionals familiar with this population and how to treat them are still sparse. This webinar aims to help respond to this need by increasing participants’ familiarity with this population, their work demands, their occupational environment, common pathologies, and, most importantly, what we can do to help. Drawing from original and published evidence and clinical and personal experience, Marianne will describe the most important ways we can adapt our practice to this population across the treatment continuum, with a particular emphasis on education and exercise.
