Text neck, cellphone elbow painful and growing

Minor movements such as typing, swiping, or tapping, although seemingly minor, when done repeatedly with force can stress out a large array of muscles. This can cause a variety of muscle pains and disorders. The best advice is to occasionally take a hiatus from these activities, and to use more ergonomic devices.

Key Takeaways:

  • Whether typing, swiping or tapping, people are stressing an array of muscles, nerves and tendons.
  • With the PC revolution in the 1980s and the Internet boom in the 1990s, computer-specific injuries cropped up.
  • advice for digital device users: Limit screen time and take breaks. Close your eyes every 20 minutes or look to the distance to avoid vision problems. Gently stretch wrists and necks, and alter postures.

“Pain is a great and terrible teacher. Few pay attention unless they too begin to suffer.”
