-- Question: What Is The Best Way To Treat 'Repetitive Strain' Injuries (Such As Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)?
Answer: The best way to treat repetitive strain injuries is first understanding how your workplace is set up. You need a good, ergonomic workplace that allows you to rest your arms, rest your wrists -- not hold them in space against gravity.
Once you get carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis of the elbow or wrist, it's appropriate to see your doctor; get appropriate wrist splints. And if you need to, a light course of physical therapy, cortisone injection, and sometimes vitamin B6 helps. Again, most importantly, get into a good exercise program.
