New Comer to the Group

Question:  I have found myself to be suffering from RSI, and am getting little help from my usual doctor. I work long hours on computers and it is starting to take its toll. i am now looking for more specialised therapy in the Yorkshire area, preferable Leeds. Any suggestions, as I am not too sure where to start? Is there an FAQ with this group?

Answer 1:  I have found myself to be suffering from RSI,  welcome – it’s a nuisance, isn’t it? 🙁 and am getting little help from my usual doctor.  that’s a pity – what did s/he say? I work long hours on computers and it is starting to take its toll.  Well you’ll have to think about changing that (said the pot to the kettle…) – I wish I had had the confidence to take a break sooner. i am now looking for more specialised therapy in the Yorkshire area, preferable Leeds. Any suggestions, as I am not too sure where to start?  just my own recent experience, if it’s any help…the most valuable thing for me was to work out what “type” of rsi I had… whether it was “in the wrists” (which it really felt like – inflamed tendons etc.) or “referred pain” (‘AMT‘, due to bad spinal posture leading to tethered nerves in the *back* and *neck*,  which only *feels like* bad wrists).
The first thing I did was to pick up Yellow Pages, find the nearest decent-sounding physiotherapist, and fix a private appointment for a.s.a.p. Finding out (from him) that the problem was the latter AMT type of rsi was very helpful, and he gave me lots of exercises which probably helped me avoid further damage, during the 6 weeks I had to wait for an NHS physio. A single private consultation only cost me 20 quid, so it was well worth it. That’s the first thing i would do anyway – get a qualified opinion that you trust about what exactly is wrong. Try to avoid panic, if at all possible!

Answer 2:  Each person is the result of millions of happenings, a few great and noticeable, the rest almost imperceptible, but everyone has been exposed to them as to atomic radiation. Some might realize what their aims are but for years they must spend their time defending themselves against the radiation and trying to build protection.  No one must move outside his own frame.
