Arm pain prevention for bassists, cellists, and other musicians.

I have chronic pain in my arms near my elbows related primarily to typing but also due to playing the bass (electric bass and double bass or upright bass), cello, and other instruments. This pain is more like an inflammation of the muscles and connective tissues of the arms and less like the pains associated with carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel syndrome.

Please note that I am not a doctor or physical therapist and that this should not be treated as medical advice. Please talk to a professional instructor and talk to your doctor if you have chronic pain that doesn’t go away.
