If you spend a long time at the keyboard, you can lose healthy use of your hands due to carpal tunnel.

Instead of waiting until this happens, why not use some simple strategies to prevent it?

In this episode I provide some stretches, a muscle recovery tool, and ergonomics tips.

Performing stretches I learned as a guitarist can help you type faster and maintain healthy function of your hands and wrists.

Using a voodoo band can loosen up chronically tight forearms, common to programmers and other professionals that work on software development teams.

And orienting your hands and arms in the best position for using a keyboard can avoid cramps and frequent visits to the massage therapist.
