Piano playing is an athletic activity, and to ignore that fact is to invite the possibility for injury. These injuries can have serious personal and professional consequences. This paper will survey causes, symptoms, and treatment relevant to injuries specific to the neck, shoulders, and upper back, and ways that piano teachers can help students recognize, prevent, and rehabilitate from said injuries.
