Janine explained how the nerves in my arm had become inflamed, and treated me with massage and also acupuncture, which I had never experienced before but proved to be very effective.
The worst of the pain very soon subsided, and after a few weeks disappeared completely. Janine also advised me on the correct posture to adopt at my workstation to avoid the problem re-occurring, and also gave me exercises to do to alleviate the effects of using the keyboard and mouse.NP
