People are trying a lot of things to relieve their wrist pain due to computer mousing the whole day. Some may have even used some floating supports that can move along with the mouse, while others end up bandaging their hands and wrists in order for the two to move along with each other. Surprisingly, a lot of these tricks do not help at all.
As far as we all know, it’s hard to know whether you are already afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome or not. Said syndrome is characterized mainly by tingling, weakness in the hand area, numbness, pain in the hands and wrists area. The same syndrome can also be caused by Ganglia. This is another hand ailment different from the carpal tunnel syndrome. Your physician may or may not require you to wear a wrist support.
One of Ganglia’s physical evidence is a small bump on the base of the thumb. Some may have a ganglion cyst, which can be drained through aspiration or will likely return on its own.
A lot of people would easily suggest that you change your job. But it is easier said than done. There are just some people who cannot leave their current job just for them to get cured from whatever type of illness they are having, let’s say carpal tunnel syndrome or a ganglion. The pain that the sufferer can get from ganglion is a bit distracting. There is also a chance that one can easily lose the strength in their affected hand.
With a bit of researching, you can still work with a small tablet, this is if you’re used to using a bigger tablet. This is also cheaper than the big ones. While most new devices needs some adaptation time, you will be surprised about the said concept. You can replace your mousing days with a pen or stylus. You can easily navigate anything just like you are used to doing with a mouse.
Whether or not your bump will get cured, there are other alternatives to using a mouse. The tablet is one. What’s important is that you let your hand and wrists heal from its ailment. And be pain free again.
