Why Its Important to Type Correctly

In some cases, people have different ways of typing. Some like to move their hands all over the place, some like to use one finger at a time, and some, like me, like to rest their wrists on the table/laptop while typing with all fingers. The proper to type is to have your wrist up, you fingers sort of slanted, and your fingers on the home keys. You are supposed to type this way because it helps prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. CTP is the entrapment of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. CTS occurs due to the swelling of the median nerve or the tendons of the wrist.
