Do office workers risk developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

At the end of a long day, many office workers feel soreness in their shoulders or realize that they have strained their eyes too much. However, some pains may feel unbearable as soon as you begin typing or using a mouse. In fact, you could have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

This medical condition involves the nerve that spans your palm to your arm. Mainly, pressure on this nerve causes pain and numbness in your hand. It might also become more difficult to continue manual tasks such as typing, writing or holding a phone. Of course, this condition could not have been your fault, but it can significantly hurt your productivity at work.
