Journal/Book: Postgrad Med. 1990; 88: 111-4.
Abstract: Musicians with overuse syndrome most commonly present with pain, inflammation, and soreness. The patient history and physical examination are the best diagnostic tools. Treatment may involve rest, splinting, and drug intervention. After the pain has subsided, progressive exercises may be appropriate. Prognosis is best with early detection and treatment.
