Slowly recovering from bursitis
You may have noticed that there hasn’t been much blogging at all around here over the past 10 days. I was away for work in tuscany for a few days and once back I came down with a sever case of Bursitis. It’s a condition that occurs if you spend a large amount of your time working with your computer.
It’s a very painful condition deriving from the intensive use of a computer mouse.
Fortunately my arm is much better and I’m able to use a keyboard – but I must use the mouse with my left hand (I’m right handed).
I’m seriously thinking about using the mouse with my left from now on.
These days a I did some search for alternative pointers but didn’t really find anything I really liked (I had my credit card within reach …)
There will be more and more people suffering from this kind of professional condition. What is industry doing about it ?
Ignoring the existence of the problem ? Alternatives are few, far apart and very expensive …
Meanwhile I advise you to pay extra attention to your work place and your ergonomy.
Have you had health problems related to your extended exposure to computers ?
