Do Harpists fall into the Guitar Tendonitis category?
I'm a harpist and my forearms have a lot of pain and swelling.
Would your guitar suggestions help us too?
Would it be similar in symptoms?
In short, the answer to your question is 'yes'.
Fleshing that out a bit....
Ultimately, the symptoms are the same: tightness of muscle, constriction of connective tissue, pain enhancing chemical from the Process of Inflammation
, and a freaked out nervous system.
Plus likely nutritional insufficiency/deficiency, and various other factors.
It's the Pain Causing Dynamic
of the Tendonitis
See: What Is Tendonitis?
So yes, the Reversing Guitar Tendonitis ebook
would work just fine for a harpist, pianist, and similar hand intensive musical categories.
If it's PRIMARILY thumb issue, technically that falls more under DeQuervain's Tendonitis
Different musicians may have instrument specific issue of posture and back/shoulder tightness etc, but that's easy to answer with an email after the forearms get dealt with.
But for all stringed instrument, players use their hands, their fingers, shoulders etc play a role.
So while the positioning may be different, the muscles still have to fire.
And while that may result in slightly different physical patterns/location of side effects, the overall Pain Causing Dynamic is still in play and will produce the same results.
