Carpal Tunnel Not Caused By Computer Usage
from the though-it-may-still-cause-pain dept
For years, it's been drilled into all of us that sitting at a computer all day (especially with bad ergonomics) increases your risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. Now, instead, we're being told that a new study shows heavy computer use has nothing to do with carpal tunnel. However, it's not all good news. In fact, it's not good news at all. Heavy computer usage can cause repetitive stress injuries... they're just not called carpal tunnel. In other words, the pain is still real. It just changed names.
