Over the last 10 years Lucy has been fortunate to increase her experience with and knowledge of with professional and amateur musicians. During this time it has highlighted the similarities between a sports player and musician as they are both athletes in their own right.
Musicians and sports players all require balance, strength and endurance and both are at risk of sustaining an injury related to their practice/training program. Alternatively, injuries can occur outside of these schedules which can significantly impact performance and training.
All About Hands can assist in assessing and treating all upper limb injuries and conditions affecting training, performance and play.
