Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and it’s up to you to help him or her out – a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturday’s paper.

This week’s question:

I’m getting quite bad pains from my elbow to my wrist, which I think is due to constant keyboard work. Physiotherapy costs £40 a session and I can’t get it on the NHS. I’ve bought compressed support bands for £1 at Poundland and take ibuprofen. I don’t earn much so physio will be a massive cost for me; is it really worth it, or are there cheaper solutions?
