Travers, Vincent. Pathologies chez les musiciens d'orchestre: Enquête dans la région Rhône-Alpes. [Disorders in Orchestral Musicians: Survey in the Rhône-Alpes Region.] Médecine des arts: Approche médicale et scientifique des pratiques artistiques (Montauban, France) no. 17 (September 1996): 30.
A questionnaire answered by professional classical musicians in the Rhône-Alpes region of France showed a predominance of musculoskeletal disorders in string players, and bucco-dental and auditory disorders in wind and brass players. The results may be used to draw conclusions as regards a more organized and effective response to the health problems of orchestral musicians, and above all as regards prevention strategies.
