being on the computer all keyboard all the time kills my wrists
Get a better keyboard. Also make sure that you are sitting at the right height to type. They also make wrist braces that keep you wrists straight so you don't do as much damage. Also get Dragon Nat speaking so you don't have to type so much.
another thing is get a lower table for your wrist to have a good rest.
Yeah I've had it for 5 years :/ definitely do what the others said, the brace definitely helps.
try tablet computer
does the dragon program work on here? I am starting to have issues. I am on the web all day.
You might want to get a wrist brace thing and you might want to wear it to bed also. It may sound strange but i know quite a few people that are having wrist problems because of the various ways they sleep with the positioning of the wrist. The brace solves the problem. Walgreen has them for like 20 bucks i think they make cheaper ones but i would go for the best because the people i know said they work. Hope this helps.
It seems that a good rest/pad for the wrist won't aggravate it. Mine hasn't gotten worse enough for a surgery.
make sure not to bend your wrists up when you type. they sell these gel things for you to rest them on.
Contact an occupational therapist, I believe they can help with this diagnosis!
If you drink diet soda...stop. It aggravates the condition. Take B6 along with B-complex vitamins. 1 B6 200 mg. and 1 B-complex 50 mg tablet daily until the pain subsides for carpal tunnel it usually works for most people. Hope it works for you.
Did you know that drinking soda (or any carbonated beverage) leaches the calcium out of your bones?? That's some scary shit.
I had wrist pain for 1 year until I got the j*int m*bility exercises from Ste*e Maxw*ll
That stuff is worth it's weight in gold!
And yes, if you are CHEAP you can find it on the net (though the guy deserves the cash)
