About This Episode

In today’s podcast we catch up with chiropractic physician and acupuncturist, Dr Randy Kertz

If you’re anything like me, you’ve experienced more than just blood, sweat and tears when it comes to playing the bass. We put our bodies through a lot of punishment while we’re out gigging and eventually our performance could suffer because of it. Luckily, guys like Randy are here to help us get in shape and stay motivated. Randy has treated countless musicians over the years and lectured on the subject of musician’s injuries and health education. He also attended the Bass Institute of Technology in 1989 and has written a book on injury management and prevention.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • Why we get injured in the first place.
  • How to warm up properly and release any tension before you play.
  • The importance of creating good habits and injury prevention.
  • All about Randy’s book; The Bassist’s Guide to Injury Management.
  • All about his life in the music business and his time at BIT
  • And much, much more…
