Computers are increasingly used for both work and entertainment. Along with this increased use come new physical challenges. Repetitive stress disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, and thoracic outlet syndrome plague computer users. Yoga can help prevent these debilitating disorders. Yoga teachers can aid their students by incorporating into their classes information about these iniuries and ways to prevent them.

A valuable source of information for CTS and RSI sufferers is "Sorehand," a free online discussion group. See the Sorehand website at: http://www.ucsf.edu/sorehand
