The Musician’s Hand

by Ian Winspur

The Musician’s Hand – A Clinical Guide was the first book to focus on the specialised topic of the upper limb and hand in musicians: the conditions they suffer, the modified assessment and treatment they require and the importance of prevention. The book opens with introductory chapters describing the principles of hand and arm pain as it is experienced by musicians, and summarising the problems associated with playing various instruments (woodwind, violin, piano, etc.). Subsequent chapters cover the specific disorders seen in musicians, (Dupuytren’s, nerve compression syndromes, etc.) describing the therapeutic solutions to each one and highlighting the key prevention strategies available. Closing chapters focus on related topics such as performance psychology and pharmacotherapy. This book is useful for many doctors, music teachers and, indeed, musicians.
