I have very serious neck pain that become migraines.
I play viola, a small one, we tried to get rid of the chin rest, but it does not seems to help so much. Does any one had similar problems? How can I fix them? I already have migraines, I do not want the viola to generate more. The chin rest has been taken off with a Russian teacher, because I said I had no neck and it was making everything very bizard.
Plse realize I am 5feet very small and very short arm, and finger. Yes I know the viola does not seems normal for a small lady, but well, I know cellist women how are smaller than me, and well cello is so much bigger ;0)
Any advice would be welcome, my teacher is out of town for almost 4 weeks, I would like to practice as much as possible, but the pain is getting worst and generating more migraines.(Serious ones)
Many many thanks it is very much appreciated. I will try a chin rest again, if it can help.
