Hi, I have been playing violin for almost 15 years but have been having trouble in the last few because of left wrist problems. I had surgery which at the time I was told would fix my problem but it appears not. Ive seen several other doctors who are at the top of their field and there is nothing that can be fixed surgically, so basically I need to stretch, get physical therapy, and take anti inflamatories with playing.
I'm looking for a new violin because I am still playing on an old one I inherited from my grandmother.
I also play guitar, and know that some guitars are easier to play because of thinner necks, etc and am wondering if the same can be true for violins. If i can find something that is more 'playable' it may help me extend my practices without inducing inflamation.
So what I am wondering is if anyone can tell me a place to shop and also what kind of violins to look at that may be right for me.
Thanks so much, I am new to this forum and found it while trying to research the things I discussed online.
