No pain, no gain : A survey study on playing related musculosceletal problems and injury prevention strategies in guitar education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka förekomsten av spelrelaterade muskuloskeletala besvär hos gitarrlärare och elever samt typen av skador. Studien syftar också till att undersöka gitarrlärares attityder till, och tillämpning av, skadeförebyggande strategier. För det tredje syftar studien till att undersöka signifikanta samband mellan skadeförebyggande metoder och förekomsten av spelrelaterade besvär. Tidigare forskning rör vanliga spelrelaterade besvär, riskfaktorer och skadeförebyggande strategier. En surveyundersökning med enkät användes för att besvara studiens forskningsfrågor. 166 gitarrlärare besvarade enkäten. Resultaten visar att 72,3% av gitarrlärarna har själva och upplevt spelrelaterade besvär och 31,9% av gitarrlärarna har haft ele- ver med spelrelaterade besvär. Den vanligaste typen av besvär var med muskler och senor. Gitarrlärarna tenderar att skadeförebyggande strategier i mindre utsträckning i undervisning jämfört med i deras egna spelande. Några statistiskt signifikanta samband hittades mellan gitarrlärares attityder till, och tillämpning av, skadeförebyggande strategier och förekomsten av spelrelaterade besvär. Generellt sett använde gitarrlärare vissa skadeförebyggande strategier i sitt spelande och undervisning i högre utsträckning om de hade erfarenhet av spelrelaterade besvär. I diskussionsdelen lyfts aspekter av resultatet i relation till tidigare presenterad forskning.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to research the prevalence of playing related musculoskeletal problems in guitar teachers and their students as well as the types of injuries. The study also aims to investigate guitar teachers attitudes towards, and application of, different injury prevention strategies. Third, the study aims to investigate any significant interconnections between injury prevention methods and the prevalence of playing related problems. Previous research deals with common playing related problems, risk factors and injury prevention strategies. A survey study with a questionnaire was used to answer the research questions. 166 guitar teachers answered the questionnaire. The results show that 72,3% of the guitar teachers have experienced playing related problems themselves and that 31,9% of the guitar teachers had had students with playing related problems. The most common problem was with muscles and tendons. Guitar teachers tended to use injury prevention methods less in teaching compared to their own playing. Some statistically significant interconnections were found between guitar teachers’ attitudes towards, and application of, injury prevention strategies and the prevalence of playing related problems. In general, guitar teachers with experience of playing related problems were more likely to use some of the injury prevention strategies in their playing and teaching. The discussion section lifts aspects of the results in relation too previously presented research.
