If you suffer from any of the following problems like shoulder/ back pain or burning/ aching wrists or fingers you need to do something about it as soon as possible. Most of those problems are early symptoms of very serious conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, etc. Not only can those conditions become very painful, but once they are chronic they may lead to disability.

There are a number of publications about RSI and back pain which come highly recommended:

Emil Pascarelli, Deborah Quilter

For general, factual information about RSI, most sufferers (myself included) recommend Pascarelli and Quilt's "Repetitive Strain Injury".

Sharon J. Butler

The most popular self-help book for people who already suffer from RSI is Sharon Butler's "Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other Repetitive Stress Injuries".

In this book, the author presents a stretching routine which helps to restore the damaged body tissue to health. Many people on the mailing lists swear by it.

Stretching in the Office

Bob Anderson, Jean Anderson

Regular stretching is considered by many researchers to be the best way to avoid damage from computer overuse.

An excellent pocket book full of useful stretches at work is Anderson's "Stretching at your Computer or Desk".

Rob Simpson

The author is an experienced pianist and applies time-honored piano techniques to the computer keyboard.

The e-book starts out by teaching you about body awareness, relaxation and flexibility before turning its attention to the two basic motions involved in typing: pressing and releasing keys.

These elements finally combine into "natural typing" offering a unique new perspective on healthy typing technique.
