Pain Free at Your PC Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using a computer doesn't have to hurt.

Prevent or reverse repetitive stress injuries

Cure carpal tunnel syndrome

End chronic wrist, shoulder, and neck pain

Ease eyestrain

Avoid surgery, drugs, and wrist braces

Using a computer should challenge your mind, not your body.

As computers become a larger part of our daily lives both at work and at home, complaints of painful wrists, sore shoulders, stiff necks, and blurry vision associated with computer use continue to soar.

But the good news is that this chronic pain can easily be prevented or cured without surgery or drugs--or expensive "ergonomic" equipment. There's no need to move your monitor, wear wrist braces, or sit in a specially designed chair.

Instead, Pete Egoscue, using the techniques and principles developed at his renowned clinic, shows you how to keep pointing and clicking for hours--pain free.

You'll learn how to:

Avoid or treat common but debilitating repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome

Recognize and remedy problems in posture and movement before they cause pain

Do easy-to-perform exercises at your desk to eliminate chronic hand, wrist, shoulder, back, and neck pain

Quickly and easily correct damaging patterns of motion

And much more

Synopsis:

An anatomical physiologist, Pete Egoscue has worked with hundreds of clients who had pain associated with computer use. He has also been consulted by some of the biggest names in sports. Practicing full-time since 1978, he is now working out of his clinic
