Body Sprains Easily And Sore And Tingling?
Since graduating from school, I have not had any activities, sports are also rare, so I often sleep at home, sometimes almost all day playing on my cellphone and sleeping, every time I wake up, I sprained my neck, and if I lift heavy things my hands feel sore and sore. I am doing fine?
Hello, thank you for the question.
Our bodies are not designed to be in a static or still position. Our bodies are designed to be balanced in all respects, both in activity and at rest. If the body is in continuous activity and does not rest, the body will experience fatigue and can result in tissue damage due to continuous forced activity.
Conversely, if the body is in a state of continuous rest, or is in a position to lie down continuously, the body will also experience disturbances, for example:
The spine will be forced to bend beyond its normal position. Most of the cases or the sofa that we often use to sleep do not support the natural shape of our spine. If this happens continuously, it can cause a change in the shape of the spine, which can cause symptoms such as low back pain, neck pain, even to pain in all joints due to being in a continuous lying position. If combined with the use of gadgets or smartphones, this can exacerbate spinal cord injuries
Muscles that are in a resting position over time will become weak if not properly trained. Therefore it is important to stretch yourself and exercise regularly so that your muscles can be properly trained.
There can be pressure ulcers or sores that occur as a result of being in a lying or sitting position all the time, which can cause prolonged pressure on these areas of our skin.
Apart from sleeping too long, there are several other conditions that can cause neck pain, including:
spinal cord injury, for example after falling from a bicycle or vehicle, this can cause neck pain due to spinal displacement and nerve clamping
There is a habit of carrying heavy objects and supporting them to the neck and shoulders.
Muscle stiffness in the neck and shoulder area
Space narrowing in the spinal area
Infection of the lining of the brain (meningitis)
Fracture in the neck area
I highly recommend reducing the habit of sleeping continuously and accompanied by the use of gadgets. Besides being able to trigger the disturbances above, this will also make us unproductive. I suggest, try to exercise regularly, as well as do your hobbies during holidays or leisure time after finishing school. In addition, also consume enough water, which is 2-3 liters a day. don't forget to check for this condition to a general practitioner or neurologist. If this condition gets worse, for example, the pain gets worse, the inability to move, occurs after a trauma or accident, feels numb or tingling in the hands, as well as shortness of breath, seizures and decreased consciousness, immediately consult the ER.
Hope this explanation helps.
