tendonitis from tech

What you are doing in order to relieve the pain? Is there some technique I can practice? I'm currently using every night some kind of protesis to immobilize my wrist for a couple of hours. I don't know wether is heat or cold that could relive the pain a little.

    Switch mouse hands. It's hard for awhile but you get good at it.

    I used to have some problems but they've gone away for the most part. The key is to never ignore pain.

    behavior and workspace modifications:
    >have one mouse for each hand, force yourself to use the non-dominant one sometimes, especially scrolling
    >scroll with page up and page down too
    >keep keyboard flat, don't use those stupid risers on the back
    >better be using a dedicated mouse and keyboard no laptop shit
    >type gently don't mash the keyboard (this one comes from the great RMS himself)

    exercise:
    >lift weights, pull ups, do literally anything
    >wrist curls
    >reverse wrist curls (use really low weight, like 2lbs)

      And one more thing. When you use your mouse, use your whole arm and keep your wrist straight. Same with the keyboard, I have my hands come in at an angle (with my elbows pointed out) so that I can keep my hands straight.
      If it was really a problem I'd look into those ergonomic split keyboards.

          Don't fall for the Dvorak meme.

          Etaoinshrdlu is much more evenly distributed and properly arranged on Qwerty because they designed it as such that hands are typing at the comfort of Zipf's Law - unlike Dvorak abomination that put etaoinsh_d_u at the middle fricking row?? Which is unnatural if you take into account how much keys repeat (Zipf's Law) when write-typing stuff.
          Middle row focus of Dvorak also increases your repetitive strain injury. The heatmap does not jive with your hand's resting state picrel.

          Qwerty also leans more on using left hand, freeing up your right hand for mouse/cup/food/documents or rather in the past for tweaking the typewriter.

          Dvorak is shallow shit perpetuated by hipster cult and don't know what they're doing.

          Dvorak is heresy causing RSI. Out of all people I've heard of online complaining about their injury, most of them use Dvorak and is "trying another layout"

          Repent. Qwerty is divine perfection.

          >>keep keyboard flat, don't use those stupid risers on the back
          why?

          moron. The resting state of the hands is curled downwards not curled upwards. The reason for the tilt was that typewriters can't be made flat. All "elevated" mechanical "trash" keyboards are irrelevant. Spend that shit on a Magic keyboard, not autism keyboard with a bunch of tactile autism switches lol at this point get a fidget spinner.

    in filipino culture we call that shit "pasma" basically after doing some strenuous manual work (like something with hands or feet when walking) one should avoid wetting the part that was tired (or sweating even) immediately.
    it's especially worse when working on something hot like cooking.
    hot/cold water/packs won't do shit and may make it worse, better use icy/hot ointment or balms. at best you could put physic nut leaf over affected area. nerve compression can't be fixed by this but you can try to remove the fricking thing that makes the strain injury worse
    >Is there some technique I can practice?
    yeah buy a vertical mouse or upgrade to a pen tablet input. if the fricking source of it is a phone just fricking buy something lighter.

    I once developed a tendonitis in my right elbow (biceps tendon), I fixed that by moving the mouse pad far enough so that my elbow is fully extended.
