German violinist David Garrett is receiving many of them, as well wishes and positive messages are received daily.
In a recent unfortunate health situation, Mr. Garrett’s management have reluctantly cancelled a fair amount of performances. Fans are worried, yet hopeful for a speedy recovery.
Spine issues are nothing to ignore. I speak from experience. Between a herniated lumbar disc when I was pregnant with my daughter (she’s 20 now), and degenerative arthritis in the cervical spine, sometimes even the simplest of daily tasks are a challenge.
I can’t imagine playing the violin with those issues.
It’s a frightful thing to wake up with no feeling in your leg or arm. It’s even worse when you can’t move your head, and it’s accompanied by burning ‘pins and needles’ pain that radiates right to your fingertips.
Even worse is how cervical spine issues can agitate things like tinnitus and vertigo.
But thankfully, there are miracle workers out there. They’re called chiropractors and osteopaths. I’m confident Mr. Garrett is receiving the best medical treatment.
Meanwhile, it is my hope that most of the fans are patient. I don’t often view the comments section of his social media accounts, but it’s almost certain there is speculation and uncertainty. I avoid that at all costs, tbqh.
Whilst we’re all waiting and praying for our favorite violinist, let’s enjoy a video or two from the vast plethora (is that redundant?) available on the interwebs.
Don’t forget to check out his other YouTube channel as well.
And finally, I wish to extend my get well soon wishes to David. We love you, Maestro. ♥
