Hand-Arm Pain

Do you experience discomfort in your arm and hand? This is often due to tension in the neck and shoulders, or from repetitive movements and over gripping. If there has been no obvious injury or repetitive tasks involved, the cause may be poor posture at your desk. If left untreated, these symptoms can become chronic and increasingly painful.

Using a standard computer mouse is a common cause of hand and arm discomfort, as it can strain the hand, arm, and shoulder. If your symptoms do not improve quickly, it is recommended to consult a GP. It is also important to have a full workstation assessment as soon as possible.

Solutions for DSE

One solution for arm and hand discomfort is using an ergonomic mouse that reduces the need for gripping. However, this alone may not provide complete relief if over stretching is not also addressed. It is also beneficial to have a chair with adjustable armrests, as this will support the arms and prevent the need to lean forward onto the desk. This keeps the elbow in a better position and reduces tension in the arms and hands.

To further improve postures and reduce strain on the neck and shoulders, a flexible document holder can be placed between the keyboard and monitor. This ensures that the keyboard and mouse are in a comfortable position and reduces the risk of over stretching. Additionally, it allows for a better viewing angle when working with paperwork.

Depending on the severity of discomfort, an individual's natural working postures, and job duties, other equipment may also be necessary. Our team at DSE Solutions can assist with a workstation assessment to determine the best solutions for you.
