|RSI ~ Carpal Tunnel ~ Back Pain ~ Neck Pain ~ CTD|
Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) are not new. Before office machines, accounting clerks suffered unusually severe cramping in their hands which eventually lead to permanent disfigurement.
Pianists and other musicians have suffered similar ailments from hours of practicing to the extent that by the time a promising student was ready to perform, he was often already so afflicted that his professional career was over before it began.
Today, children with an aptitude for computers may never get to reach their potential because of hours of damaging keyboarding. Even video games are doing their share of damage.
What are the warning signs? How can RSI be prevented? What do you do if you're already in so much pain that working becomes impossible?
It is important that potential sufferers be aware that the prevention of RSI may be simply one of finding a comfortable and efficient posture and maintaining a balance of movements while you work.
NOTE: Decisions concerning the alleviation of pain and the treatment of chronic conditions should be made with the assistance of qualified medical personnel. The possibilities of serious complications and permanent disability are too great to disregard.
