How I beat RSI!

I got noticed today about this blog. It is a great post from a patient of a former colleague of mine. The blogpost nicely takes us through his history of  pain and how he managed and coped with it. Now he is healthy and back to work.

His condition was managed in a bio-psycho-social model. I like how the patient takes us through different stages of treatment/thinking and how he explains the neurophysiology of pain in relation to his symptoms and recovery.

This is a great example of modern manual therapy in a bio-psycho-social model – from a patients' view. Enjoy!

For over three years I lived with a condition in my wrists that made it a dreadful, painful experience to use the computer and many other things in my daily life. Seemingly random pain patterns would be observed, for example I could use a button cell phone with no problems at all, but touch phones (or smart phones) became painful after mere minutes of use. I could lift a heavy crate easily, but I couldn’t lift a glass from the table without getting pain. Most commonly referred to as carpal tunnel, or repetitive strain injury (RSI), this was my everyday life.

Today I am sitting here writing this article, and yesterday I spent a good 13 hours at the computer, and neither has given me any symptoms to speak of. How did I get here? Well, this is my story.
