Musicians & Performers Can Tune Up Their Bodies with Chiropractic

orchestra musicians playing instrumentsProfessional musicians, particularly those who play violin, flute, viola, cello and guitar, are in decidedly awkward positions. The way they hold their body for an extended period leads to an accumulation of stress and tension by nature of the way they hold their instrument. Chiropractic care can help address the stress and pressure their bodies face.

How Chiropractic Can
Help Musicians

Chiropractic can play a significant role in alleviating and preventing the various aches, pains and subsequent injuries that can occur from playing in awkward positions for too long. As your Midtown NYC chiropractorDr. Shire does a combination of stretching, soft tissue work, and adjustments to free up any subluxated or fixated joints. When the nervous system can function optimally, muscles can flow properly, getting enough oxygen to operate without strain.

Helping an Acclaimed Violist

A patient of Dr. Shire’s is the lead violist (viola is a larger violin) for the New York City Ballet. She came to him with a debilitating injury, which he successfully addressed. This patient, who is one of the best violists in the world, recently competed against 400 other musicians to obtain a position with the San Francisco Orchestra. Dr. Shire recently learned she won the audition and is thrilled to have played a role in helping her through chiropractic care.

Assisting a Broadway Star and Film Actress

Another one of Dr. Shire’s patients is a well-known actor who will be starring in the lead role of an upcoming Broadway musical. They recently asked Dr. Shire if he would come to the theatre and provide chiropractic care before the performance if needed. He is delighted to oblige!
