Sometimes, I get problems with RSI.   Physiotherapy exercises help, as long as I do them gently.   The other day, I read something fascinating in the health section of the Daily Mail.   Heat rubs and cold treatments containing menthol as the active ingredient don’t actually do anything to solve the problem, other than temporarily remove the discomfort by warming or freezing the skin.  For some reason, I always assumed the treatments were delving deep into the muscles. 

So it’s back to the exercises for me.  Playing the piano helps a lot, but other activities, like talking on a mobile phone, aggravate the problem.
