Related: Tagging for the physical health and conditioning aspects of musicianship?

It’s common to experience pain when learning a new instrument or technique, and I see a lot of questions on the subject. I’ve asked a couple myself, for piano and guitar. Sometimes, pain means you’re doing something wrong, and sometimes it means you’re learning to do something right.

Between this and NReilingh’s earlier question, I think we should have one or two tags related to pain/injury and conditioning/ergonomics, but I’m not sure what the best tag names or synonyms would be here.

    Wow, that question was from a while ago! I think health could easily apply to pain/injury questions, but I agree we should have a separate tag for the conditioning and physical training aspects. – NReilingh Jun 17 '14 at 2:48
  • So something like health and conditioning then? I’m really not sure what’s a good fit here or whether we should bring forth the answers to the previous question. Post an answer I guess so that we can vote on it? – Bradd Szonye Jun 19 '14 at 4:29

I see that already exists, and it should be a good fit for and questions, so I recommend making those synonyms of .

Meanwhile, does not already exist, and I suggest creating it according to the weak consensus on the earlier question and the comments above.

I also recommend as a synonym of or .

I would recommend using the , , or similar tag for such questions, because you're not really asking about the pain (if you are, go take an aspirin), but whatever technique or posture that's causing you pain.
