Musicians Take Note: Physical Therapy!

Musicians take note… 

I recently had a patient come in who had developed shoulder and neck pain while playing the fiddle, one of his true passions in life. In addition to correcting his posture and strength deficits through physical therapy, he had a violin fitting.

The combination of physical therapy and getting fit greatly improved his symptoms with playing and he is now back to performing.  He had his fitting in Billings with Carmen Galt at Galt String Gallery, 406-259-3476, and states “it was the best $60 I ever spent on violin-related expenses!”

Our patient came to physical therapy in December 2014 with a history of episodes of chronic low back pain. He was treated by Excel Physical Therapy's Megan Peach, DPT, OCS, CSCS. He was instructed on a home exercise program for core strengthening and educated on the importance of maintaining core strength for reducing the frequency of low back pain episodes. His low back pain resolved and he was able to scuba dive in Aruba a few weeks later!
