Caused by repetitive use, this common workplace injury accounts for the most missed days in the US work-year due to illness or injury.
Besides repetitive injury the above symptoms can also be caused by tight neck muscles. If you are getting therapy only where the symptoms are then you may NOT achieve sustainable results.
Once you have the symptoms it’s imperative that you take actions to not only make adjustments to your workstation, computer, hand placement, ergonomics but also start medical massage therapy sessions as soon as possible.
Finding the root cause of your pain and creating a personalized treatment protocol will allow you to eliminate your symptoms and get back to your regular daily activities.
