Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Produced by physical therapists Perry Bonomo and Daniel Seidler, this video demonstrates 42 exercises aimed at preventing and treating computer-induced repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) such as carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain. The exercises, though given cutesy names like "Frankenstein" and "Abra Cadabra," are well worth learning. However, the video, while instructional, is not paced to accompany a full set of exercises; viewers are told to do several repetitions of an exercise but are not given ample time to accomplish them. Rather, the program seems aimed at teaching the exercises so people can later do them at their desks. However, to learn the exercises fully, viewers would be helped even more by reading the more comprehensive (but equally cutesy) companion book, ErgAerobics, which, a bit confusingly, does not follow the pacing of the video. Recommended only as a supplement to the book.ANorman Oder, "Library Journal"

"Why does working @ my computer hurt so much" is the best book I've found on preventing repetitive stress injuries. It filled with practical information for anyone who spends long hours in front of a computer (secretaries, programmers, writers, college students).
The authors, both physical therapists, provide guidelines for arranging your workstation and how to sit there once it's arranged. The best part is an extensive list of exercises for your back,neck,jaw,thumbs,wrists,elbows, and shoulders designed specifically to prevent repetitive stress injuries. In addition, each exercise is illustrated so you never have to wonder if your doing the exercises correctly.
Once again, a great book!

Nowadays a lot of computer users worry about ruining their eyes. What's more dangerous is doing serious damage to muscles and joints-- damage that can last a lifetime.
This important new book from physical therapists Perry Bonomo and Daniel Seidler will help show you how to have a healthy work station and give you valuable, easy exercises to avoid these annoying injuries, as well as developing good work habits.
Every employer on earth would do a great service to their workers if they gave them ErgAerobics. I've already suggested the idea to my Human Resources department!

As a college student who spends hours and hours in front of a computer working on my thesis, this book has transformed the way I work. No longer do I suffer from back pain, sore wrists, and neck strain. Beautifully written, concise, and practical,"Ergaerobics" is truly a "must have" book for everyone! Every college campus should provide it for their students!

Wonderfully done. This book does a fabulous job of providing simple solutions to complex problems. The illustrations are extremely helpful in demonstrating the exercises that can prevent repetitive stress injuries. Mr. Bonomo and Mr. Seidler did an outstanding job of explaining the causes of repetitive stress injuries and how to decrease the incidence of these injuries in the work place.. This book is a great addition to anyone's library who either works with a computer or treats patient's with repetitive stress injuries.
