A bit chatty tonight, because I'm not hurting so much.
For those of you who read my blog a bit ago, RSI means "repetitive stress injury", which also has a zillion of other names.
Essentially, I am hurting in my back and neck and various arm bits because of several issues, but mostly those I am attributing to computer use at home and work.
So I have been taking a break in the past couple of weeks, in the evenings, trying to limit time in my chair and at the computer.
Funny thing is that at work, 20% of what I do is ergonomic risk factor reductions (or reactive ergonomics - depending on the day). So go figure - once again its a case of "physician heal thyself".
When I was working health care I didn't have such problems as I have now. Its been since I've gone from a majority time of standing to majority of time sitting that I am experiencing my problems.
What is even funnier, is the break I am getting this week.... sitting in class 8 hrs a day all week in a crappy chair which is forcing me to move and stand more frequently(and I can)... because....
I am taking a Certified Ergonomic Specialist Course.
I'm for hire as a consultant after this...... really !!!
