Our electronics can hurt us if we don't change our habits. http://chic.clipsyndicate.com/video/playlist/12507/6853352?cpt=8&wpid=2637 KY3 - KYTV sitting in front of a screen *all day-- can be a pain in the neck. mark barger explains how our electronics -- are hurting us. "====pkg====" gaming hands, texting thumbs and lots of looking down... our devices can cause some painful conditions... "cervical strain tension headaches impingement syndrome with your shoulders, back pain" physical therapist molly capella is seeing more and more patients with injuries related to electronics "everyday" "text neck" is a common issue.. strain caused by looking down at devices. "and we're seeing it more often all different ages" but tweaking bad habits... like lifting your phone to eye level... can help prevent problems. if you always use the same hand or finger to type... "try to train yourself to switch it back and forth i always advocate for people to support it with 2 hands." and prolonged sitting, coupled with bad posture, is the perfect storm for pain. "we were just not built to sit for more than an hour at a time" keep your feet flat on the floor when sitting, but remember to stand up frequently. if you're already in pain... putting off treatment could be a bad idea. hand injuries can lead to problems up the neck and vice versa. "our bodies are like this pulley system so as soon as you compromise one section of the pulley everything else is going to get thrown off" physical therapists can suggest a program of exercises and stretches to help reverse the impact of electronics overuse "roll your hips forward" to protect our bones from the stress of our phones. mark barger, nbc news. experts warn to be careful about buying products -- that promise a quick fix. you're better off -- *training your body to create better habits.
