You can do these exercises 5 times each twice a day.
Correct sitting posture:
- Support your back.
- Adjust your chair height so that you can use the keyboard with your wrists and forearms straight and level with the floor.
- Rest your feet on floor.
- Place your screen at eye level.
- Place your keyboard in front of you when typing. Leave a gap of about four to six inches at the front of the desk to rest your wrists between bouts of typing.
- Position and use the mouse as close to you as possible.

Yoga and physiotherapy is useful in curing this.
