RSI ( Repetitive Strain Injury) is a real nuisance. I’ve had problems on and off with it for years. Last summer, a physiotherapist gave me a set of exercises designed to stretch muscles in the neck and shoulder. I did these exercises several times a day, but I think I may have overdone things. Anyway, I stopped the stretches and the discomfort stopped as well. Now the dull ache is back. The cold weather doesn’t help much.
In the past, I tried Ibuprofen, various hot and cold treatments, ice, physically pummelling the area, but the problem remains ongoing. Too much of the heat treatment tends to make the muscles worse.
So its back to the stretches.
