Muscle Tension in Musicians

Yes, we have seen many musicians in this program.  It is so common for musicians to get TMS due to the pressure they put on themselves and that fact that RSI is an easy way for the brain to alert you to a problem in your life.  Muscle tension is generated by the brain in response to stress and that causes pain when we engage in music or other activities.  The fact that the pain moves around is classic for TMS: your body is telling you that there is some kind of danger (stress, pressure you put on yourself, etc.), but it is also telling you that there is no structural problem (hence the movement).

Does that make sense?  This program is designed for people like you!

Best, Howard
