Reply To: Forearm and wrist injury
Hi Flora, Are you still here? Still playing? I see this was a year ago. As a new fiddler I experience muscle soreness and tendonitis at times, as I do in many fun things in life when I over do it. Which is easy to do when starting out. I also found limiting time to micro practices 5-10 minutes at a time, but allowing more than once a day built up stamina and helped this problem get better. As for stretching, I find doing so with a cold gel pack after (rather than before) helped a lot. Then there’s the neck and how the nerves in it can affect your arm, hand and wrist muscles that are innervated by nerves that start in the neck/. Did you try different holding/neck positions. Did you try a shorter or taller setting on the (words. . . ) shoulder rest thingy?
Hope you worked out a play plan
