classic computer-user problem…
Hello, I am a computer user as a part of my job, where I use it only periodically for parts of the year (5-10 hrs. per week over 6-8 months), and then for long, extended periods (40+ hrs. per week for 3-4 consecutive months).
Recently, I have been experiencing wrist and forearm pain which has progressively gotten worse, to the point where this past weekend, I wasn’t able to open a jar of spaghetti sauce w/o help… I know it is carpal tunnel, because I had it once before, years ago as a result of a sport.This has been a common ‘injury’ (or job hazard) among my current colleagues, all of whom went to doctors and were told to purchase a wrist brace.
I want to skip the middleman.
What is the best type of wrist brace to purchase? Are there certain brands/types that are better than others? Thanks for any info you can provide. priya
