For anyone suffering from chronic pain in their hand, wrist, arm, shoulder, or neck, I cannot recommend this book enough. If you're like me, you spend an inordinate amount of time sitting motionless at a computer, and after so many years of hunching over a keyboard or mishandling a mouse, Repetitive Stress Injuries start to set in. While most doctors will misdiagnose you with carpal tunnel or treat a localized nerve or muscle, Damany knows better: many hand or wrist problems stem from nerve entr ...more

I read this trying to get over RSI. While helpful, the most important changes for me was to start using a break program on the computer, and to use an ergonomic keyboard and mouse.

I have written more about how I overcame RSI here: https://henrikwarne.com/2012/02/18/ho...

This and trigger point massage were the only two things that improved the pain in my hands years ago. So glad I didn't have carpel tunnel surgery. ...more

Got me through a tough time in my life. Not a cure by any means, I am still a work in progress. But it helped me re-evaluate my understanding of my injuries: how I got there, how I was being treated by the Healthcare professionals, and how it is my responsibility to take charge. Emotionally it provided support that no one around me could understand -- unless you have had a workplace injury and been on disability. It is a horrible experience wrapped with a mix of fear, pain, anxiety, shame, depre ...more

Good holistic overview of the problems that are caused by working at a computer all day. I feel like it gave me insight into the specific problems I've been experiencing, which has been especially useful because my doctor couldn't be of much help. As the author notes, many general practitioners don't have enough experience in this area.

Unfortunately, this book is 15 years old and is a little dated. An updated edition is needed. But it gave me a starting point for further conversations and resear

Everyone who uses a computer needs to read this book, in my opinion. Better to learn more about RSI before developing symptoms (as I discovered!)
