People of all ages who are using smart phones to text, check Facebook, and play “Candy Crush” and other games, are finding that muscles and joints are painful and stiff, and some are experiencing swelling and numbness.   The pain experienced from technology use is not limited to our hands, we have pains in our eyes, back, neck wrists, elbows and shoulders.  Occupational Therapists can help make modifications to your working environment to reduce specific pains.  Pictured is Occupational Therapist Tami Gebel with patient Marsha Gerleman of Monona.
