My complete Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) troubleshooting guide

As I wrote on my first and huge RSI page, I was able to heal my carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) with a repetitive strain injury.

Still, my most important suggestion ist: Change the causation, not the sympthoms!

Here's a short overview on my RSI solution number 1 to 10:

RSI solution 1: Use the other hand. Ok this would help a time around 4 month. After that you’l have a repetitive strain injury on this hand. You just reschedule your problem. Actually this is no solution.

RSI solution 2: I tried to use (or to wear) a medical handwrist splint. See it at my hand and read my conclusion. But my RSI with hard wrist pain didn’t disappear.

RSI solution 3: Then I tried to lay my injured wrist on a wrist-rest-supporting-pad. See it under my arm and read my conclusion. But my RSI with hard wrist pain didn’t disappear.

RSI solution 4: After that I tried to exchange my usual mouse against a trackball-mouse. See my trackball and read my conclusion about it. But my RSI with hard wrist pain didn’t disappear.

RSI solution 5: I remembered my doctor who detected my problem in the upper back. So I tried sitting stright up on a funny sitting ball. Read my conclusion. But my RSI with hard wrist pain didn’t disappear.

RSI solution 6: Ok this ball wasn’t my thing. I did some handicrafts and build a self-made high standing-desk to reduce RSI symptoms. Great work - look at the red circle and read my conclusion. My RSI with hard wrist pain did get a little better.

RSI solution 7: As another little improvement I also used an earphone instead of an usual telephone receiver to uncramp my neck. See it plugged in my telephone and read my conclusion. My RSI with hard wrist pain did get a little better, too .

RSI solution 8: It might not only be the mouse - also an unnatural keyboard could be a problem. So I bought a Microsoft Natural Keyboard. See it on my desk and read my conclusion. My RSI with hard wrist pain did get a little better again .

RSI solution 9: Mouse and Trackball didn’t satisfy me at all. So I thought about trying it with a small and cheap Wacom Volito graphics tablet instead of a mouse/trackball. See it at work and read my conclusion about this great improvement! Actually my RSI with hard wrist pain did get much better!

RSI solution 10: Now, my problem was the too small tablet for my dual-screen monitor. So I spent some money and bought a bigger wacom tablet, an Intuos 3 Graphic Tablet. See it at work and read my conclusion about this absolutely great improvement! Actually my RSI with hard wrist pain went away!

Now I think I’m healed. After all the big Intuos 3 Tablet solved my wrist pain. Also the natural keyboard and the standing desk is supporting my upper back. With this three solutions I was able to beat my Repetitive Strain Injury.
