Pain, Range of Motion, Getting Out of the Box

Pain, Range of Motion, Imaginary Boxes, Little Old Ladies and You

Range of motion,. People lose it by living in imaginary boxes.

Increasing number of  people have rounded shoulders, head forward, headaches, and stooped backs, largely from spending so much time on small computing devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. where the screen and keyboard are so close together.

Everyone needs to get out of the imaginary box that so many live in. Those that don’t will be stooped over and in pain as they age. Being stooped over is not a factor of age, is from living with a limited range of motion. If you don’t use it you will lose it.

If you do much writing on small devices need to get the keyboard and screen away from each other.  If you have a laptop put it up on a box so you can look at the screen without having your head forward and get a separate keyboard.

If you have a smartphone or tablet it is much harder.  Problems accumulate under your radar until you think they just happened out of the blue.  They don’t.

Most smartphone and newer tablets have a tiny picture of a microphone on the upper right corner of the keyboard.  Use that when you can.

Above all, your body will try to curl yourself into a ball unless you unwind it. Use your range of motion.  Stretch yourself out.  Use it or lose it.

Now get away from the technology and go out and play.

    Hi. Wow! Thank you so much for this video. I have very serious intractable back disease and pain, and I have to do my work while laying in bed. I often suffer from some neck aches if I don’t remember to lay just right, but I have been trying to find a way to sit up some of the time, which is painful and brings on a lot of discomfort. That’s why I don’t use a desk or table anymore. But could I think of using a box for my laptop? Nope. That’s why we have you. Thanks — I’m trying it now. I hope I can strengthen some muscles if I take it slowly. I am an independent writer and researcher (retired from owning an ad and PR agency) and don’t want go give up what I love to do. I will pass the link to your site to some of the groups I belong to on Facebook!

    Your video on RLS! I’ve researched RLS remedies for years and lately done a lot of it, but sure hadn’t heard about the soap trick. There will be a bar under my sheets from now on!

  2. Hi Robert, Good to hear from you. Hope life is treating you both well.

    We both enjoyed your friend and the information on doing streaches, so important as we all get older.
