In this modern world, Smartphones have made our lives easier in several ways and connected us more than ever before. However, despite of having enormous benefits, there is some serious health risks involved in being glued to a screen.
Becoming a slave to your Smartphone can not only result in mild antisocial behaviour, but it can also increase the risk of developing certain health conditions.
Six most common health dangers involve with the overuse of Smartphone…
1. Neck Strain (Text Neck)
“Text Neck” is a new term, which refers to the strain one has to put on his/her spine when tilting his/her head down constantly while using their Smartphone for any activity, such as reading online messages. As per studies, human head weighs about 12-pounds in an upright position, however, that number increases to 60-pounds when you place your neck at a 60-degree angle.
This is lots of weight for neck and spine to bear, however, one might not feel strain when they do this while using their mobile phone.
Nevertheless, eventually it can cause degeneration and even in some cases can lead to surgery as well.
2. Poor Sleep Quality
Health experts believe that the light emitted from a Smartphone can trick our bodies out of discharges less melatonin, which is our natural sleep hormone. Which could eventually make it harder to fall asleep or if we do it, it could be less restful sleep.
3. Strain on your Eyes
Although staring at a Smartphone for most of the day may not cause permanent eye damage but it can make things a lot less comfortable.
Doctors suggest that staring at Smartphone for long time can result in dry eyes and even blurred vision.
Everybody is aware about the fact that how distracting and dangerous it is to text and drive. However, according to the Telegraph UK, this is not just from looking at your phone rather than the road as people listening to someone talk on their phones have 37-percent less brain activity. Therefore, that does not only affect drivers but it can also be harmful even if you’re walking as their is possibility that those who are texting on their phone might ignore walk signals as well as can also cause accidents such as walking into poles.
5. Weight Gain
A research done by The Kent State University showed that the more time one spend on his/her Smartphone, the less active and physically fit he/she may become, which is somewhat quite obvious.
The findings of the research also demonstrate that even if one is using a treadmill at the gym, texting can distract him and make him workout less powerful. Apart from it, it can also force one to lose his correct posture, which eventually won’t help anyone build his core muscles.
6. Nerve compression (Text Claw)
Majority of people are aware about the fact that typing too much on a PC keyboard can result in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is a painful condition generally caused by compression of a nerve from overuse of the fingers and hands. Similarly in case of Smartphones, a specific condition called Text Claw is used. Although while texting, all the work is done by your thumbs, but in that case as well you have to put excess strain on your wrists and forearms.
Nevertheless, to alleviate the symptoms you can apply heat to the affected area along with doing some hand stretch exercises.
