    Does anyone else get pain in the outside or their wrists (left and/or right) after they took up violin? I have. Any tips?

    Sometimes I get an achy feeling outer left wist like I did today’s practice but i think maybe it’s cause I’m new to playing and the muscles will build up. Doesn’t always happen. Been playing about a month now. May depend on how I hold the violin?

    Fran, I have noticed that as I get my “knuckle angle” (see Michael’s video about this) better and better, that my wrist do not bother me as much as they did. I am a physical therapist and have been working more on strengthening the right shoulderblade muscles, which is making a huge difference as well.
