Metro Physio provided onsite care for both students and teachers at Chets for over 7 years. This benefits the students not only by ensuring they recovery from musician injuries as soon as possible but also from preventing them from taking minimal time off from practise. The therapist works closely with the music teachers to address practise timings, warm up and cool down prior to performance and to address any biomechanical or postural abnormalities that may have been detected.
