I have a friend who is a pharmacist, the problem with carpal tunnel is pretty high among pharmacists as they have to make those repetitive motions to ensure the bottles are opened and closed properly. I know in my friends case she takes short 1-2 minute breaks and stretches and rotates her wrists to give them a break. With the introduction of computers in our lives, we do not even think about the repetitive motion of our wrists to control the mouse or staying on the same position when typing at the key board. No only that, how about spending so much time sitting at a desk at work or home typing, typing, typing. There is nothing better than taking little breaks to stretch neck, back and other muscles. Supplements of MSM, Glucosamine with Chondroitin and there is a nice product call Zyflamed that helps joints recover from inflamation.
