Why mobile phones may hurt backs.

Why mobile phones may hurt backs
article on the BBC news website. - The article is from 5 years ago, but I've only just come across it.


"People who chat on their mobile phone while walking could be hurting their back, according to a study. Scientists at Australia's University of Queensland say it's all down to the way we breathe."
"Dr Matthew Bennett, a spokesman for the British Chiropractic Association, welcomed the study.
"This is completely surprising," he told BBC News Online. "This is totally new research.
"It shows that we really shouldn't be talking and walking at the same time. Talking appears to disrupt our ability to walk efficiently.
"This is something we will now have to add to our list. People with bad backs should watch the way they bend to pick things up, shouldn't sit for too long and now it would seem shouldn't talk with someone they are walking with.
"This is particularly important for mobile phone users. We already know that holding a phone to your ear for long periods is bad for you, because it can increase tension across the shoulder and cause pain." "
