Dr. Charlie Kautz, DC is a Nashville-based chiropractor who’s niche is treating musicians and crew – Dan + Shay, Chance the Rapper, Louis The Child, Cherub, Common, Moon Taxi, and My Morning Jacket are just a few of the crews he’s worked with, on tour, and at festivals like Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo.
Concerts and festivals are events of high energy, excitement and constant buzz. When the curtains finally close, tired guests often go home to relax and recuperate from the excitement for a while, but the performers and crew pack it all up and hit the road, to do it all over again tomorrow. This day-to-day behind the scenes of musicians and crew are seldom explored, but undoubtedly stressful on the body, calling for that special TLC (and ginger wellness shot) this Rock Doc provides. As each show requires exactly as much energy and power as the last, performing artists are prone repetitive stress injuries (also known as repetitive strain injuries) which can manifest themselves as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and bursitis.
Whether one’s joints agree or not, the show must go on, and it does with a little Dr. Charlie magic and more often than not – RockTape.
