Got 'Mouse Shoulder'? Computer users need arm support
Terricha Bradley-Phillips, USA WEEKEND 2:06 p.m. EST November 29, 2013
Do you have Mouse Shoulder? It comes from frequent use of a computer mouse, which causes upper body strain. But the mouse is not the culprit. The problem is using a mouse without proper arm support.
Physiotherapist Maureen Dwight of the Orthopaedic Therapy Clinic Inc., says it's caused by performing repetitive movements in a fixed position with a limited range of movement. "People have changed relatively quickly from being hunters and gatherers to becoming techno-sedentary beings," she says. A growing number of patients have Mouse Shoulder (aka tendonitis, the inflammation of the shoulder tendons), which sends pain radiating from the neck and shoulders down the arm and into the hand. Ice packs, modified activities and exercise to strengthen weakened muscles once inflammation subsides generally cures the problem.
There are simple ways to prevent and reduce computer-related repetitive strain injuries, change work habits and improve posture. Support your arm on a large surface or the arm of your chair if it's level with your desk, or use a support device that allows you to keep your arm in a relaxed position.
