Many people enjoying playing the guitar but while doing so, they often neglect the position of their hands and wrists, which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. Guitar playing and Turner's syndrome is not at all connected. Even a person suffering from Turner syndrome can have fun playing the guitar.
Turner syndrome is a genetic disorder that is exclusive found in females. The girls suffering from Turner syndrome are short, usually less than 5 feet in height. They also have loose skin folds around the neck and small jaws. Due to their height, girls and women with Turner syndrome will have problems holding a normal sized guitar. However, this should not deter them from taking up guitar playing. There are always ways to get around any problem and this too can be overcome.
The one thing that females with Turner's syndrome should endeavor is to learn the correct technique of guitar playing. Invariably all the aches and pains in the wrist and hand come due to wrong techniques. No doubt a guitar playing book can show the correct position of holding the guitar but it will not be able to tell whether you are holding the guitar correctly. This can only be done when you have a tutor to show you hands on the right technique.
In addition, if the girls are spending a lot of time practicing playing the guitar, then it is imperative that they also get plenty of sleep during which the body can heal. Before playing the guitar, it will also help to do some loosening exercises concentrating on the hands, arms, shoulders and back.
Any expert will tell you that there is no connection between guitar playing and Turner's syndrome. Turner's syndrome occurs randomly in females and it occurs due to a chromosomal problem.
