The biomechanical examination of a musician with a performance-related injury

Faulty postures and misuse may be the leading causes of such injuries. A close observation of the mechanics of instrument playing is required to locate the apparent cause of and the tissues involved in the complaint. A basic orthopaedic evaluation followed by a detailed biomechanical assessment of posture is discussed. Specific postural faults seen frequently in violinists are described.
