It was my passion for music, particularly the guitar, and the image of the entrance statue at Maidstone School (U.K.) that led me to specifically study the biomechanics and structural and functional organization of the musician, whether guitarist, pianist, violinist, trumpeter...

Postural, body and instrument adjustments are made to correct imbalances and eliminate discomfort and pain while playing. Musicians, to your instruments! Cervical, lumbar, wrist and finger problems will no longer prevent you from playing at your best.

Every musician is unique, and health problems can vary depending on many factors. To avoid these problems, it's essential to maintain proper technique, take regular breaks, warm up before playing, and consult a health professional if pain persists. Careful attention to posture and instrument ergonomics can also help reduce the risk of music-related aches and pains.

Music and Biomechanics

A passion for music, particularly the guitar, and the memorable image of the statue at the entrance to the school in Maidstone (UK), were the triggers for my quest to study the biomechanics and structural and functional organization of musicians, be they guitarists, pianists, violinists, trumpeters or other instruments.

Musicians in harmony with osteopathy Osteopathy is an invaluable ally for musicians, who place intense demands on their bodies. From the outset and throughout their careers, understanding and treating the aches and pains associated with playing an instrument is essential. This therapeutic approach adapts its care to each artist, focusing on posture and movement, and preventing physical disorders. In this way, it offers musicians the keys to sustainable, pain-free practice, so that every note played rhymes with well-being.
