If you are anything like me and no doubt some of you are you will spend hours sitting in front of the T.V bashing away at the controller and getting constantly 'upset' with the game you are playing. Unfortunately for me and you is that gaming this hard is not only bad but a strain on the body. Controllers these days are ergonomically manufactured in that they 'mold' to your hands. However just because your hands are molded to an ergonomically designed controller doesn't mean that you've avoided injury. If you have ever heard of the term carpel-tunnel syndrome (hopefully you should have) you will know that sufferers battle through pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the arm and wrist. Carpel-tunnel syndrome can be a result of RSI or repetitive stress injury, the name pretty much speaks for itself however you can develop RSI by making the same physical movement over an extended period of time".
