Performing Arts

As an orchestral musician I have extensive knowledge of the issues commonly experienced by performing artists.


Not only are they prone to the same sprains and strains as the general public, but the often awkward postures adopted to perform, the hours of practice and performance, and the stress of live concerts place an added pressure on the body.


I frequently treat musicians with various issues such as RSI, joint pain and muscle strains that, in the case of professional performers, can have a potential impact on their ability to do their jobs, and in extreme cases, threaten their livelihood. 

I also offer performing artists dynamic postural assessments; for example asking musicians to attend an appointment with their instrument so that we can work together to assess aggravating and maintaining factors and reasons for pain.


My wide knowledge of performing arts medicine enables me to work closely with musicians and performers to rehabilitate from previous injury and aim for pain free performance. I have worked with players from some of the UK’s leading orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, and with many of London's leading session players. 


I regularly write for the British Horn Society and other publications and continue to play French Horn at a professional level.
