With children having technology and digital media at their fingertips at all times of the day, things that were previously harmless are no longer such. Recent studies have emerged regarding the dangers of excessive video game play for children, especially those using the Nintendo system. One chiropractor has urged parents to regulate the extent to which their children play these games, in order to avoid any issues dealing with their structure and posture in the long run.
- Kids need to take stretching breaks to avoid strain on the neck
- early years of movement are extremely important for core development strength
- Nintendo neck is caused from bending the head down to look at electronics causing more weight to be put on core muscles
“Dr. Cheryl Vincent with Simsbury Chiropractic and Wellness Center stopped by our studio to warn parents about Nintendo Neck, a condition caused by overuse of electronics.”
