Among artists, musicians suffer from special health problems related to their occupation and lifestyle. These mainly include musculoskeletal disorders, skin disorders, respiratory disorders and noise induced hearing impairment. In this review we point out the most prevalent health problems that musicians face in their professional lives as well as the means to prevent them. The characteristics of individual performer and the type of instrument that he/she plays will determine the occupational disorder or disease that a musician may suffer from. The main worry about health problems in musicians is that they can become potentially career-ending disabilities. Therefore well-planned preventive strategies should be employed to help musicians in obtaining long and healthy career.
