6 Tips to prevent injury if you play Guitar

Musicians spend a lot of time practicing their instrument, so it is imperative to take care of details that can lead to injury. The great amount of hours of practice involves being careful when playing your guitar, bass or string instrument.
While warming up before practicing the guitar and the elongations that we will see in this article is necessary, there are details that have not been taken into account in some recommendations and I consider fundamental to prevent an injury.1-. Practice time: Ideally , practice sessions no more than 40 minutes to 1 hour and a half at most. As much for a mental as physical subject. The practice should be by objectives, so once the objectives of that practice have been met, rest and resume the guitar in another session. The amount of total hours of the day is dependent on your level, the important thing is to take the appropriate breaks and stop immediately when feeling discomfort. The practice should be calm and painless.

2-.  Posture Practice: Ideally , practice sitting with your spine straight, arms relaxed and guitar at a height where the elbow is relatively parallel to your torso. I hope to use this height also with the strap so that there are no changes when touching standing.

3-. String height: While often is a matter of taste, the sound that can generate or feeling generated by you, if your practice is demanding is advisable to use a normal action low to generate less strain on your hand On your practice guitar. To play live or a few hours of practice you can take higher actions if you want, on your guitar.

4-.Calibre string: This is a topic that is not spoken in the articles, I think it is necessary to consider it . If you practice styles in which you recurrently occupy string lifting, it is advisable to take on your guitar string games of a caliber of 0.09 or 0.10 from the first string or occupy hybrid games if you want to keep thick strings, so that strings You will get up (the first three) are lighter.

5-. Practice separate hands : It is a very good practice advice only control the right hand, then left practice separately. The lack of control of one will make you more tense and squeeze more than necessary. To practice the right you can mute with the left hand and make different rhythmic figures in each string and / or combining strings. For the left hand exercises legato or taping are very efficient.

6-. Heating and elongation: If only from the arms and mobilizing different directions slowly and in a short and then make more rapid and comprehensive range progressive movements. The ideal is to elongate flexors and extensors of wrist and fingers before and after playing about 5 minutes. Do not forget to mobilize the neck in a gentle way in different directions as well as the shoulders.

Imagenería and Hygiene Column: The performance of your hand not only depends on a mechanical issue, it is much more than that. Both mental movement planning and communication between the brain and your hand are critical in the process. The mental practice or visualization will greatly improve your performance on the guitar. Imagining playing, while initially difficult, will significantly enhance your mind map of the guitar and the scales or chords you want to learn.

Another key point is to enhance this communication between brain and hand. If your cervical spine is in trouble or is not in optimal condition, this communication will be interrupted generating a performance lower than the real potential that you can reach. The last cervical and thoracic spinal segments are responsible for sending and receiving information from the hand, so it is highly recommended to correct the dysfunctions that exist in these segments to maximize your performance. Many professional musicians visit the chiropractor near me for this reason, to stay in top condition and take advantage of the maximum performance of their body
