#2 - with my repetitive strain injury solution number 2 I tried to support my wrist directly with a wrist splint. This was exactly what my doctor recommened to my Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).
The "feeling" on keyboard writing and mouse operations is some kind of strange at the beginning. The first days I really thought this might help my on my repetitive strain injury problem. But as mentioned before:
You have to change the causation, not the sympthoms!
In my personal oppinion - this wrest splint is only lowering the sympthoms - little lowering of wrist pain. But you should really think about changing the causation...
So I had to find some other repetitive strain injury solutions. In fact I found 10 solutions. Read more on repetitive strain injury solution #3 -rest your injured wrist on a supporting mouse or keyboard pad.
Repetitive Strain Injury Solution 3 – rest injured wrist on a wrist supporting mouse or keyboard pad
#3 - with my repetitive strain injury solution number 3 I thought about fighting my RSI with hard pain on my right hand/wrist with a cheap wrist-supporting pad.
After some weeks I found out - this is better than noting! But my RSI with hard wrist pain didn’t disappear. It just became a little better. Usually this pads are pretty cheap. I suggest to give it a try. If the pain can't be healed, try some other additional repetitive strain injury (rsi) solutions.
Repetitive strain injury (rsi) solution number 4: After my unsuccessful try #3 I exchanged my usual mouse against a trackball-mouse.
Actually a trackball is an inverted mouse. So there you move the "mouse-ball" directly and the "mouse-body" stands still.
This is a good solution - it's a complte other way to operate your mouse cursor. But imaging - after a couple of weeks - you're still operating the same way all day long. You just re-schedule your RSI problem. Think about it.
At the end I had to say this can not heal a Repetitive Strain Injury for a very long time. Then I remembered my doctor who detected my problem in the upper back. So I tried sitting stright up on a funny sitting ball. So this was my Repetitive Strain Injury solution #5.
