Daiskov, AM., “Effects of Reflexology on Computer Mouse Injuries. A Pilot Study.” FDZ Forenede Danske Zoneterapeuter, from 2004-2006 .


  30 participants were randomly divided into two groups: and active group consisting of 15, and a passive group consisting of 15. Both groups were tested before and after the period of treatment/period of observation. A questionnaire, power measurement, standardized computer program, pain diary and VAS-lifequalityscore diagram were used to collect date. Also, a physiological assessment was done by an athletic physiologist. Results: the active group showed a reduction in pain and improvement in quality of life. The power measurement and computer capability were equal in the active and passive group.


  There was no clear answer as to reflexology having an effect on computer mouse injuries. Further study is needed as the results didn’t show a better coherence between the development in the statement of pain and the development in computer capability and raises a question on the choice of methods used.
