Are You a Victim of Tech Neck?

TECH NECK TECHNIQUE

If you’re a “people-watcher”, you have walked through waiting rooms and lobbies observing people intensely engaged with their cell phone, often for prolonged periods of time.One after another, in rows, not moving at all.Similarly, in the workplace, employees are stationary and staring at their computer screens for hours on end.The neck is locked in a 30-45 degree angle, as if fastened by side-brackets, and suspended in place by tense neck muscles.The arms are flexed to on each side of the body.The only movement is the tapping of the keys.

​Keep Moving in Winter

Like bears, humans tend to hibernate during the winter months.Nights are longer, days are shorter and the cold air outside feels less welcoming to the human body.

Think of winter as a physical challenge. Turn the laziness into some fun, reachable goals that will improve your health and vitality.Think of exercise as getting ready for your beach vacation or hiking the Hill Country. It helps to visualize the big goal.

The easiest way to get moving is to join a local recreation center.There will be a monthly cost, but it is rarely unaffordable.There is normally a good assortment of spin cycles, exercise equipment, a track, basketball courts, and often, a pool. Choose what you like to do and go find an exercise partner who will help keep you going toward your goal.

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacements are becoming more common at any age given the wear and tear on the knees. Our William F. Tucker, Jr., MD, has more insight into this procedure:

Total knee replacement is one of the most common and most successful procedures in all of us. On average about 2 knees are replaced for every hip. This is due to the amount of stress which is placed in a localized area in the knee, which is a much more complicated joint than the hip.
