Computer Health - Causes

There is still some debate about what actually causes muscles, tendons, nerves and other soft tissues to become damaged to the extent that a severe medical condition develops. However it is thought that such a health problem is caused as a result of muscles being held tight for long periods without rest. This can restrict blood supply, which can cause decreased delivery of oxygen and nutrients and a build up of waste products (e.g. lactic acid). This eventually results in inflammation of muscles, tendons and other soft tissues.

In addition, stress and poor posture places pressure on nerves, especially in the neck and wrist, and can cause and exacerbate the health problem.
