Research 2013-2014: "Development and psychometric evaluation of the Musculoskeletal Pain Intensity and Interference Questionnaire for professional orchestra Musicians (MPIIQM)".
The main aim of this study was to develop a questionnaire, designed specifically for professional musicians, that could be used to measure pain and its impact on playing a musical instrument. A second aim of the study was to gain an insight on the extent of muscle and joint problems among professional musicians from three major orchestras in Scotland, i.e. the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
The questionnaire was named the Musculoskeletal Pain Intensity and Interference Questionnaire for Musicians (MPIIQM). The study was completed in August 2013, was published online in June 2014, and in the journal Manual Therapy in December 2014.

The MPIIQM is now available as a User Guide with the full version of the questionnaire. You can download it from this website. Click here to download.
