Full Abstract: A functional assessment of the musician presenting a dystonia is of the utmost importance since the rehabilitation strategy is based largely on the outcome of the assessment. The evaluation deals largely with the musician's physical condition, but the psychological profile and morphology must not be overlooked. The physical examination must be performed methodically and is based on observation, palpation, and tests of the spine, pectoral girdle, arms, hands, and the musician's standing and sitting positions while playing. During the physical examination, the explanations given by the therapist and the exchanges with the musician form the basis for a confidence-based relation essential to establishing and pursuing the rehabilitation.
