_______________ If You Sit Like This on the Drums, Get Help Fast
Drum Throne Posture, Preventing Back Pain, & Increasing Performance: There are very few things that I’m extremely outspoken about in drumming…but posture and sitting correctly is one of them. Why? Because if you don’t correct how you sit and your posture at the drums immediately, it WILL lead to back pain. No ifs, ands, or buts about that one.
This was taken from a livestream I did for the members of the Drum Better Daily program. Drumming with back pain is a topic I discuss often with drummers. It’s a very common issue whether it’s low back drumming pain, mid back drumming pain, or neck drumming pain. If you plan on playing the drums, this is a topic every beginner drummer, intermediate drummer, and advanced drummer should put some thought in to.
Good news though…a few simple adjustments to how you sit at the drums can have a MASSIVE impact on back pain that comes as a result of sitting at the drums for extended periods of time.
