Guitar Wrist Pain and Guitar Tendonitis Treatments

As a guitarist, are you experiencing pain due to consistent guitar playing? Guitar Tendonitis may occur if you play a guitar professionally or strictly for leisure purposes. Tendonitis is common among tennis players, golfers, pitchers, swimmers, jumpers, and guitarists.
