Woman's Fingers Gets Stuck In Grotesque Position After Using Her Phone Non-Stop For A Week
Put down your phone once in a while, folks.
Hello everyone, this is a cautionary tale to remind you to put your phone down every once in a while
The unnamed woman had apparently taken one week off from work, only to spend her entire vacation tapping and scrolling away on her phone
Not long after, she started experiencing severe pain in her right hand and eventually found that her fingers were stuck in a grotesque, smartphone-holding position
Realising that she was unable to bend nor move her fingers properly, she went to the hospital. Shanghaiist reported that she was eventually diagnosed with tenosynovitis, an inflammation of the fluid-filled sheath surrounding a tendon which could have been caused by repeating the same motion day after day.
Fortunately, the woman was able to regain normal movement in her hand after treatment. In a video accompanying the report, the doctor advised her and the general public to moderate their smartphone usage.
