Children Suffering From ‘Gameboy Back’

Young Adult Playing Video Games

 

Video games, while fun, can be addictive and now also harmful to your back.

Doctors all around the world say they’re seeing more and more children developing curvature of the spine because they hunch over their consoles and smartphones while playing video games.

In fact, the medical community has now even come up with a name for the condition – Gameboy Back.

According to ABC News, it typically affects those between the ages of 8 and 18.

But doctors say the problem doesn’t stem from the devices themselves.  Instead, the culprit is bad posture.

Sort that out, they say, and the problem goes away.
