: Does anyone have and expierences or stories re: Playing related Back pain and Chiropractors. If I play arco for more than a half hour I get pain near my right shoulder blade, slightly naer the spine. I belive that it is mussle\nerve related. Any success stories re: chiropractors.

Let me guess - German style bow?? Have you tried raising the height of your bass?

There are a few informative musician's injuries web sites you may wish to consult -- there is a section of them in my Double Bass Links page, link below.

As far as Chiropractors... my personal experience did not find them to be a solution, but others regard them with religious respect (like, you need to go once a week for the rest of your life ) -- but what works for some is fine with me.
