Chiropractic for Musicians

Posted June 13, 2017 @ 1:25pm | by Kori Mortenson

Since Dr Kori – Chiropractic is based in Santa Barbara, with all it’s music venues, we want to make sure all of our talented musicians are staying healthy and able to play/sing to the best of their ability! Chiropractic care is essential for musicians. Playing insturments or singing in the same position, using specific muscle groups for hours, can put a lot of strain on your body. Over time that  strain can start to cause shifts in your bones and place pressure on the nerves, resulting in a misalignment of the spine. Misalignments restrict your body’s ability to perform at it’s best level, and can cause you to experience pain and discomfort. All things you don’t want to have to deal with when playing music.

Think of your body as if it’s an instrument. Do you tune your instrument to get the best sound out of it? Well, your body requires the same treatment. Chiropractic adjustments are like a tune up for your body, restoring alignment in your spine, thus allowing your body to properly function at it’s best level. When you free your body from nerve interferences and blockages, you’ll start to see an enhanced performance, more energy, and the ability to practice more efficiently and effectively.

Some of the specific issues chiropractic helps musicians with include:

-Low back pain

-Neck pain

-Carpal tunnel

-Vocal cord strain

-Hand, wrist, and finger pain

-Shoulder & elbow pain

We recommend every musician receive a chiropractic evaluation, even if you feel like you’re not in pain or the pain is minimal. What often happens, is a nerve interference can be building up pressure in your body for a very long time without you ever knowing it. Once you reach the point of pain, that usually indicates that the pressure has become severe. Pain is a warning sign that something is not right. That’s why we recommend a proactive approach to spinal health rather than reactive. It’s much easier to maintain a healthy body than it is to bring a body back from severe damage. The first step in being proactive with your spinal health is to get evaluated. If you’re a musician in Santa Barbara, come check us out.
