Clarkson University Physical Therapy Program

Musician Injury Prevention

Clarkson University Doctor of Physical Therapy students have collaborated with Crane School of Music faculty and students to develop a series of injury prevention workshops. This page has the handouts created for that project.

None of the activities or exercises described in these handouts should increase pain; if they do, stop doing them and see a health care provider for personalized guidance.
