Why was The Functional Musician created?
The Functional Musician, LLC was created to help musicians overcome tension, pain, and injury.
Austin failed to overcome his injuries after spending over $12,000 on various methods over the course of three years. This frustrated and inspired him to take things into own hands to find a reliable way to address chronic pain.
After overcoming his own injury and expanding his education, Austin launched The Functional Musician, LLC in the Spring 2020 to offer musicians a resource that could help them overcome tension, pain, or injury.

At The Functional Musician, our mission is to help musicians overcome tension, pain, or injury. This simple phrase can be broken down into three different ways:
It’s impossible to reach your full potential and have a long, healthy career if you are constantly stiff, tense, or in pain. Mastering your craft takes time, consistent practice, and putting yourself in uncomfortable and demanding situations. You don't have to sacrifice your health to be successful as a performer, in fact, prioritizing your health can add sustainability and prolong your career.
Every musician should have a toolbox of health and wellness tools they can use to prevent, manage, and resolve many of their aches and pains on their own, without having to rely on other health and wellness or medical professionals, unless a situation arises where you need to.
EveryBODY is different.
Bones, weight, gender, height, genetics, etc. personalized and customized health and wellness plan. Different personality styles, learning styles, past experiences, etc.
