Adjust Your Sitting Position At The Desk While Working On Your Laptop Or Computer

Most of us today spend most of our time in front of the screen working in office. When we remain seated in any position for long it leads to the atrophy of the muscular system and creates changes in the ligaments that support the joints and bones. Similarly, when you rest your wrist in the same position on the table for a long the blood supply cuts off and makes changes to the ligaments and other supportive tissues present around the wrist. This is why it is very important that you take a break between your work and stretch your body and wrist. Adjust the sitting position if you feel the tension in your wrist. Make sure while working your forearms are flat on your desk and well supported. 

Once the wrist pain is alleviated with the help of home therapies make sure to position your wrists correctly to prevent pain and discomfort in future.

If there is no relief, better see a doctor and physiotherapist for diagnosis and to rule out nerve damaging and inflammatory conditions.
