PEDAGOGICAL PATHWAYS PROGRAMMING
RIGHT HAND PAIN: HOW CHANGES TO THUMB POSITION CAN PREVENT
AND HEAL OVERUSE INJURY
Presenter: Dr. Suzanne Tirk
This workshop is designed for clarinetists that have experienced right hand pain/overuse injuries and for those clarinetists that are seeking ways to relax the hand, thus preventing injury. We will examine how repositioning the angle of the right-hand thumb makes a significant impact on the relaxation and function of the right hand. Having suffered from a right-hand overuse injury herself, presenter Suzanne Tirk has used this technique to help students suffering from right-hand overuse injury, as well as heal her own injury.
Suzanne Tirk’s appearance is sponsored by Buffet Crampon and the University of Oklahoma
