Mouse elbow tendonitis

Mouse elbow tendonitis

Computer use is the principal cause of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). For computer users, RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) is a real factor of tendonitis.

Computer programming or coding may literally be dangerous to your elbow.

Mouse Elbow, which is akin to Tennis Elbow, is just one adverse health condition that is associated with computer use.

Other maladies associated with computers include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from keyboard and the mouse, shoulder and neck pain, and Sciatica.

With the more intense use of the keyboards in recent years and the advent of the mouse, computer programmers are more at risk to injury than they were just a few years ago.
As such, it behooves every programmer to protect himself from MSD.
