Playing-related musculoskeletal problems in children learning instrumental music: prevalence and associated potential risk factors
MetadataShow full item record
731 child instrumentalists were surveyed to establish the 1) prevalence and location of PRMP, and 2) independent association of potential risk factors with PRMP. 67% reported lifetime prevalence of PRMP, 56% monthly PRMP and 30% were unable to play the instrument as usual. The hands and neck were the most commonly reported PRMP locations. Individual factors and music-related factors were significantly associated with PRMP. Understanding potential risk factors will guide intervention initiatives for young instrumentalists.
