Doesn't taking breaks for ergonomic reasons hurt "flow"?

I've recently been having tendinitis issues at work (I'm in the IT field). I've bought an ergonomic keyboard, started correcting bad habits and I also installed Workrave
; a small program that "forces" me to take the occasional break.
I've begun to wonder if these breaks are hurting my overall productivity. Specifically with regard to the psychological concept of "flow
". Am I wrong or is this just something I have to deal with?
