Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Infrared Heat Therapy

by Anna Miller

Don't laugh, there's a list of new warm, USB infrared heated computer gadgets available to help prevent the onset of repetitive strain injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. So, instead of causing problems, the computer may actually be helping us!

Many people suffer from hand and arm injuries due to overusing the computer mouse hand and keyboard hands. It's referred to as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD). The most common form of the condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve running from the arm to the hand gets squeezed near the wrist. The median nerve deals with the palm side of the thumb, most of the fingers and some muscles in the hand. The area called the "carpal tunnel" is a narrow area of ligament and bone at the base of the hand that holds the median nerve and some tendons. When the median nerve gets squeezed, it usually causes pain, tingling, numbness and weakness in the hand, wrist and arm.





The onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is gradual. So, taking a proactive approach to this type of condition is the smart thing to do. There are things a person can do to help decrease the chance of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and possibly prevent it altogether.

The most obvious health tips include relaxing the hand's grip on objects like the computer mouse, excercising the hands and arms instead of sitting in the same position for long hours, creating a healthy ergonomic computer work area and keeping the hands using the computer warm.

I have carpal tunnel syndrome and my therapist told me about these heated computer gadgets, like a heated mouse and a heated mouse pad so I looked into it and found that they really do work. The infrared heat is just the right amount to help relieve the pain in my hands. I also bought the heated wrist pad to work in conjunction with the heated mouse. If you want to read about the Heated, Warm Mouse, visit Warm Mouse or Heated Mouse.

I enjoyed this post because I have carpal tunnel. I use a warm mouse, warm mouse pad and a mouse hand warmer mouse pad blanket. It really creates a deep heated warm place for my cold mouse hand. Thank you! Don't hesitate to contact me if you need anymore testimonials about your products. I'd be more than happy to send a review or write a post. Sue.

I've been using the valuerays heated computer devices for about 6 months and my mouse hand pain is gone. I still need to do exercises, but the infrared heated computer mouse and mouse pad used inside the mouse hand warmer blanket pouch really has improved the amount of time I can work. Thank you!
