MODULE 2: Hearing Protection
- Protect Your Hearing - The importance of hearing health for drummers who are exposed to a very loud instrument, daily. How to avoid tinnitus at all costs!
- In-Ear Monitors (IEM's) For Drummers. Not all IEM's are created equal. A look at some of the best and "best value" monitors on the market, and what to look for in terms of drivers - tweeters, mids and woofers.
- Noise Cancellation Headphones - Although they don't look as discreet as IEM's, these are a fantastic option for drummers and arguably offer more protection when listening to music than IEM's, because they cover the entire ear.
- Custom Audiologist Earplugs - A great custom moulded option. with attenuators of varying decibel degrees that can be swapped out. 15db, 25db, 50db etc.
- Regular Earmuffs - Still arguably the best hearing protection on the market, as they cover the entire ear and protect the back of the ear from harmful bass frequencies.
MODULE 3: Injuries, Conditions & Treatments
- Repetitive Strain Injury - a condition caused by repetitive movements that leads to pain and discomfort in muscles, tendons, and joints.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome - a nerve disorder characterized by pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and fingers caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist.
- Physio, chiro & osteo - the differences between each, and how they "could" help drummers.
- Yoga for drummers - how Yoga helps enhance their posture, balance, and overall body awareness, improving their drumming technique and preventing injuries.
- Pilates for drummers - how pilates for drummers improves core strength, posture, and flexibility, enhancing overall performance and reducing the risk of injuries.
- Tendonitis - Tendonitis is a condition in which the tendons become inflamed, usually due to overuse or repetitive stress. It commonly affects the tendons in the wrist and hand, which can make playing drums difficult, if not impossible.
- Tennis elbow - also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition that affects the lateral epicondyle of the humerus bone in the elbow. It is a common overuse injury that can occur in anyone who performs repetitive arm and wrist movements.
- Back pain - As a drummer, you may spend hours at a time in a seated position while playing. While this can be comfortable in the short term, over time it can lead to chronic back pain and other conditions, such as thoracic kyphosis.
