Abstract: The article by Cliffton Chan et al. in this issue of Medical Problems of Performing Artists is the written version of his presentation at the PAMA Symposium that won the 2014 Alice G. Brandfonbrener Young Investigator Award. In it, Chan and his colleagues describe a controlled trial of an exercise program for professional symphony orchestra musicians. One of my first editorials was on the subject of prevention of musicians' injuries, and a lot of work has been done on this subject in the 8 years since. In this editorial I will attempt to summarize some of the work that has been done since 2006 and suggest how we might build on the momentum that has been created by Dr. Chan and other researchers.
