Musician and physical therapist Sheri Rolf gave an informative presentation on medical awareness for musicians. By introducing the basic anatomy and describing what is considered “trauma” to the body, Rolf gave specific information on ways to prevent and how to become aware of the signs of fatigue in the body. By being aware of what our bodies tell us, we are then able to take appropriate measures to prevent debilitation and permanent injury.
