How to get relief for Wrist Pain from Computer Use


Michael Li  0:03 

Are your wrists just dead by the end of a workday? It's very accurate to say that you have been stuck in a certain position for a long time. Your body's telling you they need some help, and I will show you three simple tips to help with that. I'm Dr. Li from Mobility Plus in Seattle helping many knowledge workers, like you, get rid of their pain quickly, and help you understand why you have that pain so that pain becomes less scary. And before we start, make sure you like this video, it will help us a lot. Let's get into it. The first point I want to show you is a proper setup for your keyboard.

You want to have your keyboard lower than your elbows to allow your wrist to point downward. This position will allow your carpal tunnel space to open up, so you don't crush on all the nerves that go through that. AKA, less wrist pain by the end of the day. The second point is your shoulder position. We found many folks with wrist pain always will have nerve impingement in the shoulder area. A quick way to alleviate that is to have your armrests higher, so they are pushing your shoulders upward to relax your shoulder muscles. The third point is stretching.

Most wrist pain we have seen in the clinic actually has too much tension at the nerves, and stretching would worsen that tension. I know some folks will say they feel relief from that, and that's great. But for those who don't have the relief from stretching, do this instead. We call this the Median Nerve Flossing which will help restore the nerve’s proper mobility from the shoulder to your head. and get life back to that dead wrist by the end of a workday. So, what do you do to help with your wrist pain or other computer-related pain?
