Computer Pain


Pope-Gajic. O,(2001, Oct. 1) Computer Pain. retrieved on April. 10, 2009 from :


According to the author, she states that if you use computer a long time, you must feel tired and get some physical problems such as low back pain, horrible pain, and so on. Ergonomic problems, which include Carpal tunnel syndrome and aching back, have been increasingly common in modern society; however, nobody has noticed what the causes are. First, in general we don't think that we have any physical problems in our bodies, but routine position and routine life undermine our bodies, especially computer work. On the other hand, we have solutions to ease this pain.According to the article, treatment is very simple. The author suggests we should do proper exercise, take some medicine and keep god posture. In addition, sometimes we need physical therapy, which can provide stretching, evaluation and correct exercises for our problems. If we do this constantly, we will be fine. In conclusion, money is important, but you can't do anything without your health.


In present-day life, computer is one of the necessities of life. Moreover, we can do anything through internet. On the other hand, computer often causes some physical disease. It is clear current research reports many articles about computer pain. I'm interested in these diseases, because physical therapists have been active in this field recently. That is why I chose this article. I think physical therapy deeply relates to problems, which are caused by modern society.Next, I want to talk about computer pain as well. In my opinion, approximately most people have the problem of computer pain in their life, because computer has been widespread all over the world. Computer pain is a serious problem, but nobody is aware of it. I think it is a more serious problem than computer pain itself. I want to say something as a physical therapist. If people can become aware of this problem, they can treat it by themselves. Then, they must remove the pain finally. Proper exercise gives us a good body and reduces stress, but if you don't pay close attention to your body, your computer pain will never recover I think. It will be chronic pain. I have to protect people from these diseases of modern society as a physical therapist.
