iPhone.iPod.jpgEveryone has an iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Samsung or other high tech phones these days. Texting, internet searches and long periods of time are spent on these tiny gadgets. Technology is great, but problems with fingers, wrists, forearms, neck and back are becoming common place because of bad ergonomics and posture when using our new technology.

Go to any cafe or restaurant at lunchtime and you will see people on their cell phones or reading, looking down for long periods of time and texting without taking a break. This can lead to neck (text neck), shoulder, arm and wrist pain.

Having your head down for long periods of time starts to put an added burden to your neck muscles, ligaments andblackberry.jpg bones! It is a good idea to place your phone at a level where your eyes are even with the screen and you are not looking down.

When tweeting, SMSing or emailing, take a break once in a while and stretch your forearms, fingers and neck. Every 20 minutes is recommended. This is going to help you prevent long term stress leading to problems later on. While taking this break practice looking far and near to exercise your eyes and keep your lenses in shape.

At Advanced Healthcare we can help you with any problems you may have with your neck, back, hands, forearms and any joint in your body! We will provide proper exercises and ergonomic advice to keep your body healthy and functioning properly.

Don't hesitate to call Advanced Healthcare at (416) 633-3000 and make an appointment today with Dr. Pisarek. He'll help show you how to make the most out of new technology while remaining pain free.

Testimonial

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
