Full Abstract: The general state of research in the field of musicians' injuries is described. Musicians and physicians are admonished to hold research in this budding field to a high scientific standard, rather than applauding unrealistic progress in research. This necessitates the art of medicine, as typical musicians' medical problems are often vexing. Various impediments to the scientific process are examined. Dr. Brandfonbrener concludes by advising the importance of forewarning and proper education to musicians before problems arise.
