TJW Podcast No. 1 - Janet Horvath of Playing Less Hurt
Posted by ★ Owner on October 11, 2010 at 11:39 AM

Janet Horvath played the cello so much she couldn't even turn a doorknob without it causing extreme pain. After recovering from tendonitis, she made it a personal mission to learn as much as she could about the repetitive strain injuries that musicians have quietly endured for generations. The culmination of her work is a book entitled Playing (Less) Hurt, which is an indispensible guide to injury prevention for every instrumental musician no matter what style or level of performing they do. Janet speaks very frankly about the nature of the repetitive injuries musicians sustain, the current reserach and treatments for them, and the new frontiers in treating hearing loss and hearing injuries. (35 min.)
