What ebook should I buy for tendonitis from guitar playing??

by Joshua Beard

I have wrist and forearm tendonitis in my picking hand. Over the last 6 years it has gotten to the point where my forearm tightens up immediately when I try to pick. I have had 2 ganglion cyst surgeries also on my right wrist.

I have been told to that from the scar tissue I will have to re-learn how to play and re-adjust my overall picking technique. I am not expecting a medical response, I am just wondering if the guitar tendonitis book is the one I should buy?


Joshua Answers:

Hi Joshua B.

Yes, Reversing Guitar Tendonitis ebook is a good choice for you.

It covers forearm and wrist pain and tendonitis, and a couple specific pointers for guitar players.

See: What Is Tendonitis

If you have extra connective tissue constriction from the cyst removal surgeries, then it's just a matter of softening and opening up that tissue. Connective tissue literally 'knits' itself back together after it's been cut, which means it pulls together and tightens.

So you you can and likely should adapt your playing style, but you'll likely get more benefit out of getting your structure back to a happy healthy state.

Pain in neck and back!!
by: Anonymous

Hi - I have discomfort and medium pain in my trap muscles and on the front of my neck on my fretting hand side when I play.

It's pretty much there every time I play and it's annoying.

It also has led to tightness in my arm and wrist, lower back and leg.

It's all connected because when I have been able to stretch or temporarily relieve it in the neck/trap area, it seems to relieve it in the entire body.

I'm not sure which book to get?

Whiplash one since it deals with the neck?

Or the Guitar tendonitis one?

Thanks in advance.


Joshua Comments:

This reply is very very late....

The content of the two programs is very very similar (because the tendonitis dynamic is the tendonitis dynamic no matter where it shows up). But I'd get the Whiplash program for reasons including, you saying you stretching the neck provided benefit.

There's a lot of 'neck' happening with playing guitar. And a certain amount of the arm/wrist complaint could be due to that.

When one thing contracts (quickly, like...'oh no he's playing guitar tighten up!') there's a whole chain of response of other things tightening up in response. Which makes sense with the symptoms in the entire body reducing when breaking the constant contraction in the neck/traps.

How are things doing now? Please give us an update.
