Question: How Can I Avoid 'Repetitive Strain' Injuries (Such As Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)?

Answer: Well, the first thing in understanding repetitive strain injuries is to know that repetitive strain injuries are really a whole classification of injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome being one of them. The most important things in avoiding these injuries are to understand that you need to take breaks at work; when you feel the pain coming on, take a break, take a minute away from work. Do some stretching.

The next thing to do is get into a good exercise program such as yoga, pilates. Stay in good condition. When you feel these types of injuries coming on, you should get in contact with your doctor more early. Don't push through work; take a little bit of time, move around, get up, exercise a little bit and you should be able to avoid these quite nicely.
