There’s only a short time to go before the jolly man in the red coat leaves a bundle of gifts under our Christmas trees. If you’re a parent to a teenager (or perhaps not!), this probably means that within those delightfully wrapped boxes sits certain electronic devices that are itching to be played with!
Our experienced Stoke on Trent chiropractor warns that while the top gift on many Christmas lists may be the latest games consoles, playing them too much can cause many painful conditions. And what’s even more worrying is that the thrill of playing often masks the tell-tale symptoms.
According to our leading chiropractor in Stoke on Trent, gamers who spend frequent, lengthy durations playing on game consoles put themselves at risk of backaches, migraines, carpel tunnel syndrome and sleep disturbances. But quite often, players are so heavily focused on the game that they do not even notice when these symptoms are first starting to occur.
The link between computer use and certain muscular conditions has long been apparent but we should be extra diligent at Christmas when the holidays mean more free time to spend too long in front of the screen.
