According to a recent survey, Americans spend 5 hours on their phone or other mobile device. While this number is disturbing, the peripheral effects of constantly using technology is far more worrisome.
So exactly how is technology impacting our health? One of the most common problems arising from the overuse of technology is known as “tech neck.” This refers to the neck pain people get from constantly looking down at their phone and other devices.
Another pain you may feel due to technology is sometimes called the “cyber slouch.” This comes from the hunched-over position people often find themselves when they are on mobile devices.
“Gamer’s thumb” refers to repetitive stress injuries of the wrist and thumb. This used to only be something gamers had to worry about but anybody who spends much time texting or using a mouse can experience.
You can keep tech-related pain at bay by lifting devices up to eye level and taking breaks. But if you’re suffering with nagging pain in your neck, shoulders, and back, you should consider seeking help. These issues may start as a small annoyance, but they can lead to chronic pain.
