In today’s times, one cannot live without mobile phones. More than communicating it is also used misused and overused. I will list below some syndromes that are caused due to mobile addiction.
- “Text Claw” is a non-medical term that is used to recount all of the finger cramping and sore muscles that come from uninterrupted scrolling, texting, and gaming on smartphones.Using your phone too much can result in inflammation in your tendons and enhance existing conditions, like tendonitis and carpal tunnel. Correspondingly “Cell Phone Elbow” describes tingling or numbness in ring and pinky fingers after bending your elbow for long periods of time.
- Slouching over your phone for hours at a time is ruining your neck and hurting your back muscles. “iPosture” or “Text Neck” are just two of a few phrases doctors throw around to describe the excessive stress on neck muscles.
- Looking at the tiny font in your texts and scrolling through dozens of tweets can lead to eyestrain, blurred vision, dizziness, and dry eyes.
