Playing (Less) Hurt

Posted at 2:24 PM on May 19, 2010 by Alison Young

To my friends out there who play an instrument, I have an informal poll:

The reason I ask is that this Friday I'll be hosting a select group of instrumentalists who have overcome pain and other obstacles, plus Dr. Jonathan Reynolds a rehabilitation specialist, and Janet Horvath, the author of the best-selling and authoritative book on the subject, "Playing (Less) Hurt."

Send me your thoughts - and any questions you'd like asked - and check back in the coming weeks for our in-depth video-taped interview and discussion.
