Tips to Help Avoid Text Pain (hand, neck and back)

Beep. Ding. Ring! 

Pavlov did an experiment that proved dogs could be conditioned to salivate at the sound of a bell. The conditioning consisted of the sound of a bell rung every time the dog was given food he liked. At first the dogs heard the bell then were given food every time. It became a quickly conditioned response that a bell meant food. Because of this the dog would salivate the moment he heard the bell, regardless of if the food was present or not. It became a conditioned response.

2021 we have taken the place of the dog in the experiment. Our phones ding, beep, chime, you name it, and we grab it and look at the message or notification. It is a conditioned response no different than the dog Pavlov trained.

This constant online surfing, texting, and clicking is taking a toll on our bodies and it is ending in pain.

While this amazing smart phone technology has changed the way we live and interact it is also showing to be detrimental on our necks, backs, and hands.

The average adult spends more than 80 minutes on their phone daily and that doesn’t account for making actual telephone calls.
