Professional musicians often suffer from medical problems connected to their activity. Thus, they need specific etiology, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.

Speakers: Dr. John Chong and Dr. Shmuel Tatz

No need to teach children how to sit and stand. Throughout life we pick up bad habits that cause discomfort and even pain. Consult with a specialist who has knowledge of your body's biomechanics to decide when to work sitting down or standing up.

We have seen this many times and the same applies to shoulders, hips and other joints. The right physical therapist is often a better option than surgery.

A new study found that the popular pain relievers known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or Nsaids, may increase the risk for the most common type of irregular heartbeat, atrial fibrillation.

There are many alternative methods of pain relief...

Our patient of the month for April 2014 is 
Jihye Sung. 

"I want to express my sincere appreciation for the professional care given to me by Dr. Tatz and the friendly staff. After trying many physical therapists in New York City, I finally found someone who is dedicated to his patients. Dr. Tatz relieved almost 10 years of pain I've had in my shoulder, which made me almost unable to play the violin. Other therapists have temporarily relieved the pain, but he really cured it. In addition to the therapy, Dr. Tatz taught me many daily exercises to enhance my health with his insightful observation and tremendous experience. I heartily recommend Dr. Tatz."

Our patient of the month for March 2014 is Nicolas Namoradze.

"Shmuel Tatz’s sessions are ideal for a performing musician. His manual therapy provides immense relief to muscles that are sore or fatigued – the tension disappears, and one is left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. He has an intimate understanding of the body’s behavior under physical stress, and can thus give truly great advice on how to best approach practice and performance from a physical standpoint, as well as suggest many wonderful exercises for staying healthy. I am greatly indebted to Shmuel Tatz for my physical wellbeing."

Nicolas has an upcoming student recital: http://lc.lincolncenter.org/shows/209832?show_date=2014-04-04+18%3A00%3A00

To say that physical therapist Shmuel Tatz is good for what ails you is a gross understatement—just ask the throngs of musicians, dancers, and athletes he’s treated at his Carnegie Hall studio. "Professional musicians, dancers, and athletes don’t have time to go from doctor to doctor," says Tatz, who was educated in Lithuania, Germany, Russia, and Israel, and has lived in the US for 25 years. "They want to get better right now with minimum side effects."

Through a mix of yoga, osteopathy, acupuncture, and physical and reflex therapy, Tatz has kept clients like Mikhail Baryshnikov, Susan Jaffe, Peter Jennings, Lou Reed, Kathleen Turner, and members of the Soviet Olympic team in fine form. But an elitist he's not: The bulk of his patients are "average Joes" who come to him with everything from lower back pain to carpal tunnel syndrome to arthritis to migraines. He calls most of what he sees "happy injuries"—incurred from leisure activities (yoga, golf, running) that leave the bodies in need of a tune up—and prides himself on giving each client as much time as is needed to get the job done properly. We feel better already.

Before I found Dr. Tatz, I had broken the ring finger in the joint inside of my left hand (in a stupid, unlucky fall), and wondered if I'd ever play my instrument the same way again. 8 weeks after the break, I still couldn't make a fist, and I was concerned that all of the hours in my life that I've put into practice with a metronome would be gone. Now, after a healthy number of sessions with Dr. Tatz, I can say without doubt that I will play at a professional level again. I've had physical therapy before for other injuries, but have experienced nothing like this incredible level of applied knowledge and efficient treatment. I simply didn't know that individualized, fully hands-on physical therapy like this was possible, until I began this process. The technical skill displayed by Dr. Tatz in physically manipulating and guiding my recovering hand back into proper, healthy form has been incredible to witness. The difference in dexterity, range of motion and comfort between when I arrived in the office a few weeks ago, and now as I am playing again is extraordinary. I'd say that his therapy approaches the miraculous, but that wouldn't do justice to the real-world expertise involved in getting my hand's complex, atrophied, damaged tissues to cooperate with each other again. The advice that I'd give to any other concert-level musician with an injury like mine is this: get up to Columbus Circle to see Dr. Tatz as soon as possible, and get back on the path to recovering full capability with your instrument and your life.

I have had a constant pain in my neck for years now, and as I am young, only 19 when I started visiting Shmuel Tatz, I never thought of seeking help as I thought the pain would go away. But the decision of visiting Dr. Tatz was the wisest one I have made. One does not realise the importance of tuning the body until one knows what a tuned body feels like! And Shmuel Tatz gave me that opportunity, of being in touch with my body and feeling tuned. I have learnt a lot from him, and it will stay with me forever. Thank you Shmuel for your time and your gift! Rebeca Gutierrez

Dr. Tatz is fantastic!! He definitely has a healer's touch. After one visit I feel so much better it's amazing. Pain that I have been suffering for over three years is nearly gone. He is a body-whisperer. I will be back!

I had been having extensive trouble with the more physical aspects of my violin playing for almost two years, and the renowned violin maker David Segal recommended that I pay a visit to Dr. Tatz, a world famous "body tuner" located in the heart of Manhattan. Dr. Tatz is no ordinary physical therapist - he is a true master of his craft, and he understands not only the fine details of how the human body works and how it can be manipulated and repaired, but also the specific needs of musicians, dancers, athletes, and other entertainers who rely heavily upon their own bodies as an expressive medium. He knows that we rely on our bodies for our professions, and his treatment is designed to get us back in the game as quickly as possible, when taking time off is not an option. Many doctors and physical therapists do not understand that if we were to take two or three months off of our jobs, we would not be able to make the rent - Dr. Tatz understands not only this, but his comprehension of the human body in general is unrivaled by any other physician or therapist I have ever been to. When I first started going to Dr. Tatz, I could barely play my violin for more than fifteen minutes at a time without being afflicted by debilitating pain that would sometimes take hours to subside; my mobility was severely limited to the point that even mundane tasks had become difficult, such as using dining utensils, or holding a toothbrush, or even trying to write with a pen. After my first session with Dr. Tatz, my mobility increased by what I estimate to be about seventy-five percent, and I was able to play the violin for an hour the next day. I went back for another appointment the day after that, and my mobility was increased even further, and the next day, I was able to practise the violin for an hour and a half, and my pain was greatly nullified. After three weeks of sessions, I was able to play the violin for at least three to four hours every day, and almost all my pain was gone; my mobility was almost completely restored. It has been a month since I stopped going to Dr. Tatz for regular treatments, and continuing with the exercises he prescribed to me, I am able to play the violin for seven to eight hours a day with little to no pain, and I see improvement every week. The residual pain I feel is as a result of inflammation that built up over two years' time; continuing with Dr. Tatz's recommendations and exercises has been reducing my inflammation gradually over the last few weeks, and now I am able to play with more freedom and comfort than I have felt in the last two years; my violin teachers comment that I have made more improvement in the last month alone than I made all last year. I searched long and hard for a solution to my problems, spending hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars taking lessons with various teachers who claimed they could solve my pain problems, seeing Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais specialists who claimed that if I listened to everything they said about body awareness, my pain would dissipate (end result: if anything, my pain got worse after seeing these people). The month I spent going to Dr. Tatz was, in my opinion, as important to my well-being and to my artistry as a full year of violin lessons.

Shmuel Tatz is an extraordinarily gifted, creative, intuitive and knowledgeable physical therapist. In actuality, it doesn't seem accurate to call him a "physical therapist" - which he is - but, because his hands and his being are so closely tuned to my experienced needs and pain - it seems more meaningful to call him a healer. I have a history of many surgeries and Shmuel is most sensitive to the specifics of my body without my verbalizing very much - which is good given that I am not a good describer. He has a vast array of approaches and always is responsive to the needs of the present using his felt sense to focus his moves. His hands and understanding are exceptional. I highly recommend him and encourage anyone who goes to him to be trusting of his skills and commitment to healing.

Dr. Tatz is the most knowledgeable and experienced therapist for patients who suffer from any type of chronic pain. I have visited a number of PT treatment offices in Boston and tried deferent type of alternative medicine treatments, but it was Dr. Tatz who helped me. Patients suffering from fibromyalgia would know the limitations of treatment possibilities. You will find help in Dr. Tatz office. Excellent treatment, nice atmospheres, beautiful music, and highly professional stuff members. Thank you Dr. Tatz!
