BMI Healthcare, an independent provider of private healthcare in the UK, has introduced London Musicians’ Clinic to treat injuries experienced by amateur, semi-professional and professional musicians.

The new London Musicians’ clinic will specialise in hand and upper-limb problems, and will provide care to both NHS and private patients.

"The new London Musicians’ clinic will specialise in hand and upper-limb problems."

BMI Healthcare’s London Musicians’ Clinic is located at BMI The Garden Hospital and BMI 9 Harley Street.

Consultant orthopaedic hand and upper-limb surgeon Dr John White said anyone who plays a musical instrument can potentially suffer musculoskeletal problems.

"For amateurs this can be an inconvenience. For the professional who relies on the ability to play to make a living, injury can be devastating or at worst career ending," Dr White added.

"Having been a musician myself, I am all too aware of the mechanics and various types of playing that can aggravate existing or new problems, cause pain, numbness, weakness or even lack of control."

While minor trauma and ordinary orthopaedic problems have minor effects on non-musicians, they can have profound consequences for a musician’s ability to play, according to Dr White.

Dr White and his team have a wealth of experience treating conditions such as repetitive strain syndrome, rheumatoid disease, dupuytren’s contracture, upper-limb arthroscopy, shoulder, elbow and finger joint replacements, and scaphoid non-union.
