          A longitudinal investigation of the factors associated with increased RISk of playing-related musculoskeletal disorders in MUsic students (RISMUS): a study protocol

          https://bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biome...891-019-2440-4

          Student and professional musicians will play through pain, as a physiotherapist I don't have much say, I can support and advise them though.

            The high prevalence of playing-related musculoskeletal disorders (PRMDs) and its associated factors in amateur musicians playing in student orchestras: A cross-sectional study

            https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0191772

            The reported prevalences of PRMDs in amateur musicians vary greatly, depending on the study design and the population studied. Prevalences of up to 80% have been reported among amateur musicians.[812] These numbers seem to outline the prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints in the open population, for example in the Netherlands a year prevalence of 53.4% is reported in a survey in the open population.[13] However, no study directly comparing prevalences has been performed to our knowledge.[2,14,15] Female gender has been associated with a higher prevalence of PRMDs among amateur musicians.[2,11,12] Playing load is another confirmed risk factor among amateur musicians.[8,9,11] A recent cohort study reported a nearly threefold increase in prevalence following a sudden increase in playing time.[8]

            However, literature studying the health of the amateur musician is scarce.[8] Several associated factors for PRMDs in professional musicians have not yet been studied in amateur musicians. Among these factors are instrument type, tobacco and alcohol consumption, exercise, playing experience and warming up, and perceived physical burden.[1,16,17] Also several biomechanical factors possibly influence the occurrence of PRMDs in musicians; asymmetric static playing posture, weight of the instrument and elevation of the arms possibly play a role in the development and maintenance of PRMDs.[14,16,18] Each instrument thereby has its own potential risk factors due to differences in playing technique.[19] Within the general population, additional to the music-specific risk factors, other determinants such as age, comorbidity and physical demands were found to be risk factors for musculoskeletal complaints.[20]

              Hypermobility of joints in dancers

              https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0212188

              Researchers, who devoted their academic careers to the problem of excessive flexibility in dancers, have always faced a puzzling question: is hypermobility genetically determined or is it simply the result of the strenuous training routines that dancers undergo since childhood? Unfortunately, this question still remains unanswered [4]. Furthermore, there are conflicting opinions in the literature on whether excessive flexibility in dancers is a benefit or a problem. Some researchers have reported evidence of a correlation between joint hypermobility and increased risk of injury, identifying JHS as the underlying cause of impaired coordination and poor physical performance, chronic fatigue, and mental strain [6, 7]. Other authors have suggested that the JHS often found in dancers is an asset more than a liability [8] with excessive joint laxity in children often perceived by dance schools as a marker of future success in professional dancing.

              However, the struggles with training intensity and peer pressure that some young dancers have to face frequently prove to be too arduous for them to handle. A prolonged adaptation period and low body awareness during their initial training may lead to musculoskeletal damage [9].

                  Could long-term overhead load in painters be associated with rotator cuff lesions? A pilot study

                  https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0213824

                  Long-term occupational load on the shoulders in painters seems to be associated with an increased risk for developing RCT. Our findings may provide support for developing preventive strategies for this unique cohort.
