ZOE GONZALEZ VALBUENA
Cello student at the Higher Conservatory of Castilla y León

JOSE ANGEL SANCHEZ GARCIA
Piano student at the Elda Conservatory (Alicante)
"I wanted to summarize in a few lines my experience during the recovery of my problem both at the muscular and nervous level. As a result of a very hard year of study, with many hours of rehearsal without being aware of the importance of warming up, playing relaxed, breathing During performance and stretching after rehearsal, my arms ended up very fatigued last summer and with poor tissue recovery, causing an ulnar nerve entrapment in both arms. After much suffering and anguish from having gone through countless sessions of physiotherapy in many clinics near my town and very superficial diagnoses and little specialized in the injuries of musicians, I was very lucky to meet Dr. Tomás in a piano forum. Reading the opinions of his patients encouraged me to ask him for help and go to his consultation to be treated by him ".
DANIEL HIDALGO GIRL
Saxophone student at the Conservatory of Úbeda-Jaen
Hello, my name is Daniel and I play the alto saxophone. I am 15 years old and I live in Villacarrillo, province of Jaén. I am going to start 1st year of Baccalaureate and 3rd year of EEPP of music specialty saxophone.
My forearm problems started a long time ago, but I remember that at the end of last year and the beginning of this one (2020) I had to stop playing several times during my classes at the Úbeda conservatory because the pain was almost unbearable.
After confinement, the discomfort increased until I reached a point where it was impossible for me to play for more than 10 minutes at a time, write by hand, type on the computer and I could not exercise, which is one of my main hobbies. So much so that my parents had to write me class assignments on many occasions.
Dra. Marta del Nido. Emergency Physician Hospital Gómez Ulla Madrid-Guitarist
"I play Spanish guitar as an amateur and about 8 months ago I began to notice pain in the base of the thumb and left forearm while playing, at first I did not give it importance because I have always considered myself with strength in my hands and I could not imagine that a simple instrument could cause hand injuries, so it took me a while to discuss it with specialists. When the pain was becoming increasingly disabling, I consulted him and was diagnosed with a Quervain's tenosynovitis, initially short wave and ultrasound therapies were prescribed. I did not do well, days later the area was infiltrated with corticosteroids and then I wore a firm Quervain wristband for about 8 weeks with the consequent discomfort that it entails for daily activity. When the wristband was removed I noticed that the pain persisted since in the morning and I felt almost worse because I could not stretch my left thumb, later surgery was proposed to me and I began to read so I saw the possible complications and I decided not to have surgery. And from this moment on when I got in touch with Tomás Martin .....
