We spend more and more time on our PCs, whether at work or at home. As a result, excessive mouse manipulation leads to mouse syndrome.
Pain appears in the wrist, shoulder or even hand. It must be said that with a classic mouse called horizontal, the arm and wrist are under tension and in unnatural positions. As soon as you exceed 4 hours a day in front of a PC, the risk of inflammation and pain increases.
Not taking these signs into consideration can lead to serious problems. The idea that simple clicks can compromise your career or be disabling in your life can make you smile, but that's not to mention that we do these repetitive manipulations thousands of times a day. The human body is certainly solid, but it does not like repetitive movements. These can lead to musculoskeletal disorders. There is nothing funny about suffering from epicondylitis and having to wear a splint in the evening.
There is no miracle solution and the problem must be taken as a whole. But to limit the risk, it is essential to adapt your working environment.
If pain appears:
- Don't forget to consult your doctor
- Adapt your posture and invest in a real office chair
- Did you ever think about working standing up?
- Opt for a quality vertical mouse
