Exercise v. Ergonomics

Well it has come to light that exercising and stretching have a more powerful effect on prevention of repetitive stress injuries (like carpal tunnel) than expensive Aeron chairs.

Researchers are not saying we should write off ergonomics completely, but exercise seems to be key to keeping the pain at bay. Rehabilitative exercise, endurance training (yep, getting your heart rate up), stretching and strength training all had positive effects on folks with pain caused from working long hours at the computer. Sound familiar?

Be sure to get up from your computer at least once an hour and move around and/or stretch. If you have trouble remembering that you have a body, you should check out MacBreakZ. It's a software program that reminds you to stretch. How great is that, it turns your injury creating nemesis into your coach.
