It’s sometimes called tenosynovitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tennis or golf elbow, bursitis or housemaid’s knee.

  • “One of the most harmful habits among working professionals is bad ergonomics. “Most people spend hours slouched in front of the computer, sitting on furniture that’s not ergonomically designed, which damages muscles, tendons and nerves of the neck, shoulders, forearms and hands,” says Yash Gulati, senior consultant, orthopaedics, at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals. This can lead to conditions like repetitive strain injury, tendonitis, chronic pain around the joints and carpal tunnel syndrome.” – Habits to avoid at work
  • “Early in 2005 the muscles in my forearms started to hurt. In the beginning it was only a slight irritation, but over the course of six months it gradually got worse, until it was so bad I actually thought I would have to switch careers and stop programming altogether. I realized fairly quickly that I had RSI—Repetitive Stress Injury.” – How I Beat Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI) with a Few Minor Adjustments

In addition, vendors are now offering gadgets, IT equipment and office furniture designed with ergonomics in mind. Here’s a look at the ideal working posture, along with some suggestions about how to set up and ergonomic work area.” – Setting up a workstation for a healthier you
  • “…can the internet make us physically ill? Is the internet bad for us in the way that going outside with wet hair is bad for us?

This is the news that isn’t news, because the Mail just decided to republish year-old research, but it’s interesting.” – Is the internet making us ill?
