Guitarists must use proper guitar & bass exercises to add strength to their finger, hand, wrist, forearm & elbow. Dr. Terry Zachary explains how the finger muscles work when playing guitar and how guitarist must strengthen all fingers muscles in order to have maximum speed, strength, stamina & accuracy, as well as prevent injuries to the fingers, hand, wrist forearm & elbow such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, fatigue, cramping and RSI (repetitive stress injury). Dr. Zachary uses sEMG to show why guitarist should use ghs Handmaster Plus to strengthen all hand muscles for maximum support and maximum injury prevention. ghs Handmaster Plus is available at www.ghsstrings.com

My knees are terrible, moreso my right one. Whenever I bend them, they crack. If I make a bicycle motion with my leg, my right knee cracks every time and it feels terrible. I can’t keep it bent for long periods of time (thats what hurts the most), especially when I’m sitting "pretzel style". I constantly feel like I have to straighten my leg when I’m sitting down, and I really never noticed I do it quite often until recently.

I’m only 17 years old! Freshman year I had a stability brace on my knee for a while, but I don’t remember the doctor every saying what exactly was wrong. That or I just don’t remember.

I really haven’t been paying much attention to this because I have tennis elbow and radial tunnel syndrom in my right elbow and I’ve been going to therapy for that and may have to have surgery soon! I don’t even play sports =/ but I guess the elbow can be from being a musician. But not the knee!!

Anyone know what might be wrong? It hurts mostly on the outside. =/
