As a physical therapist who treats a large percentage of patients in the

Often the problem is poor posture, both static and while moving.  Many
problems are remedied by correcting instabilities and restrictions in
movement in the back or neck.  If braces are used, they must fit correctly
and support you in a correct position, ie at the wrist.  But often, simple
solutions like the wrist and/or mouse rest can solve the problem.  L. Olson
