Good books about RSI?


These two are recommended by the DataHand Community:
It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome! RSI Theory & Therapy for Computer Professionals
The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook: Your Self-Treatment Guide for Pain Relief, Second Edition

Has anyone here read either of these?

I've read the second one. At least the first part before it goes into the specifics. Good book. I do not have RSI though.

You can read the first chapter online:

Thanks, lowpoly. I think I will get this book.


--- Quote from: webwit;18957 ---That said, it feels like I have been on holiday and not touched a keyboard in a week - that's when I feel and notice the difference and my hands and fingertips feel great. As a cynic towards products that promise anti-RSI ergonomics (the field is too young) this was a great surprise.

I really want to try the DataHand now. Your recent comments about it have changed my mind. :) I wish they could be hired.

I've read the first book, Its not Carpal Tunnel (even though in my case it was, at least partially). I recommend it, along with the books by John E. Sarno; but honestly, they are not substitutes for actual hand therapists and chiropractors.
