Dennis Hays helpfully suggested an exercise to help relieve the symptoms of
carpal tunnel syndrome.

I don't have CTS, but I imagine that, like most people who spend a lot
of time at a keyboard/mouse, there's a certain risk.

An ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure, does anyone know of ways to
_prevent_ CTS?

Is there medical evidence pointing to specific causes? Things to avoid doing?
Things to do to counteract the things you can't avoid doing?

And to all CTS sufferers - get well soon!
