Avoiding Arm Pain from Computer Use
Repetitive movements are a common cause of workplace injuries in San Jose. If you develop work-related injuries, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim. You might also wish to modify your work habits to reduce your risk of future workplace injuries. For example, if you work on a computer, you might consider switching to an ergonomic keyboard and mouse.
Even if you prefer not to change your computer equipment, you can modify your technique. Make sure the wrist is in proper alignment with the forearm, avoid unnecessary force on the hands, and prevent tendon pain caused by overuse of the spacebar.
