Help for Aching Hands and Arms

posted by Chattering Mind

If your hands, arms, and shoulders ache from long hours at the computer, you might glean good information by reading Ergoblog, a well-executed site that reviews the latest keyboards and desk chairs, and discusses the possible relationship between stress injuries and food allergies.

A full-spectrum, vitamin-B supplement has helped my tendonitis somewhat, and discipling myself to never, never blog on the portable computer at the dining room table, (where the table height is all wrong, and the keyboard is too small) has been helpful too.

Additionally, I’m loving Microsoft’s Ergo Keyboard 4000 right now. And this DVD of hand and arm exercises is excellent. Here’s a longer blog post on the subject. I also correct my children’s posture when they’re at the computer and when they’ll let me. It’s my belief that if I weren’t the Music Man, there’d be trouble in River City.

Another thing that is very helpful is not sleeping with your elbows or wrist bent all night. This can cause or aggravate tendonitis in the elbow or wrist. Try using an elbow pad or wrist splint at night to keep the joint in a neutal position. You can get them at any drug store. This is not medical advice just passing on advice that my Physical Therapist gave me and it helped. Love and Light.

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am

And Finally, This:
Place your burden at the feet of the Lord of the Universe who accomplishes everything. Remain all the time steadfast in the heart, in the Transcendental Absolute.
