In the current technologically advanced world, everyone depends on the smartphone right from the time we wake up till the time we go off to bed at night.
Smartphones definitely make our lives easy but at the cost of damaging our small joints of the hand and the surrounding muscles.
Smartphone thumb is the condition that develops after excessive usage of smartphones. Individuals generally experience discomfort around the base of the thumb which is the main finger involved in swiping and tapping on the phone.
Smartphones are small and are not really ergonomically designed to perform repetitive actions with small joints of hand for long periods of time. Our muscles and tendons undergo a lot of repetitive contraction and sliding when operating the phones which leads to fatigue and soreness of the small muscles of the hand leading to pain.
When your hand starts to cramp and get sore while using the phone, listen to the body’s way of giving you a signal to ‘ STOP’.
Attention is to be given to sustained aches and cramps with stiffness which if ignored can lead to tendinitis, repetitive stress injuries and arthritis in the long run.
