IPad injuries

Last Update: August 07, 2017

Hi guys,

I'm popping into say hello and update you about my current injury created from holding an iPad without a proper stand.

Ever since last year of 2016 I've developed a Frozen Shoulder. I've had my iPad for three years and I use it every day. In fact we had to increase our usage to unlimited, I know, lol, yes, I love my iPad.

Anyhow, I went for acupuncture and the acupuncturist told me I had a Frozen Shoulder. I than decided to see a doctor about it, we did an ultra sound, and it was confirmed that it was a Frozen Shoulder.

A Frozen Shoulder is when the body decides to encapsulate a problem area with collagen, trying to protect the weak area from further trauma. (The body is an animal of its own.) Who ever named it as a, "Frozen Shoulder," knew what they were talking about cause it will not move past a certain point. And now my other shoulder is giving me trouble.

I did a bit of research about iPads and Frozen Shoulders and discovered that a lot of people are suffering from the injury due to the iPad. Not only iPads, but iPhones as well. It's much like having carpal tunnel in the wrist, but it's in the shoulder area instead. Not fun and it's extremely painful. (iPads and iPhones require you to hold the device resulting in placing strain on certain muscles, such as the shoulder area.)

So, if anyone else is experiencing this type of condition get a stand specifically for iPads. They do not cost very much and who knows could very well be a great niche idea.

My spouse noticed one yesterday while out shopping and that is what I'm using as of now, and thank God, it's working.

Happy iPad typing guys!

Becky

Thanks mark, no, I will not be having any surgery, yikes, lol, absolutely not! The iPad stand works ok, but the IPad carry case works the greatest.

I'm going to follow up with another post explaining the dos, do not's and a lesson that I learned from this experience.

Have a nice week - end my friend and talk to you soon.

Hey Swangirl, forget about me, lol, where have you been? I've turned off my email notifications, so it's great to hear from you.

Thanks for dropping into say hi.

I'm going to do another post relating to the injury and the lesson that I learned throughout.

Again, It's nice to hear from you and hope your doing great.

I have been here. I did several posts last week with pictures from our gorgeous drive in the mountains. You would like them.

I am learning about Amazon giveaways now and my husband has a job. Not the one we really wanted but a job is better than no job. He got the permanent position at the job he already has and has some leads on others.

Thanks for asking. I hope you are feeling better!

Swangirl,

Amazon giveaways, nice!

Sounds like your on the right track. I'm happy for you!

Yes, my arms and shoulders are feeling better, but precautions are still very real.

Thanks and will talk soon.

A problem when phone size migrated beyond the standard flip phone. Hope it can be treated. Get well Becky!

That's an understatement but so very real, Mike. I'm going to write another blog about the experience, how to avoid it, and the lesson I learned from it. It's all good!

Yes, it's real and very painful. I'm going to write another post about it and what I've learned and how it applies to a product niche idea.

The stand sucks by the way. It has its good points, but the real deal is the original iPad carry case.

Kindest regards,

Becky

Wow, this is great to know and there are injuries associated with all devices. I will make sure I get a stand. Thank you Becky!

jetrbby, I'm not sure if you bought a stand, or not, but from my experience the stand sucks. The original iPad carrier works the best.

I now own both and love them both, but I prefer the original book style type that's specifically meant for iPads.

I'll post a blog soon probably tomorrow, (which will be Sunday) with further details, how to avoid this injury, what to do and not to do, (how it relates to building our online business,) and because this is something that you don't want to mess with, but can be corrected and avoided if done properly.

Sincerest apologies for the late reply, jetrbby.

Simplest and kindest regards,

Becky

Looking forward to read your blog post on this Becky. Thanks!

Ok, I'll do just that Kaju.

Talk to you very soon.

I'm going to listen to some training as of now and I'll be using the iPad stand for that.

Later on in the day, I'll hopefully write the blog, and to do that, I'll be using the iPad carry case.

I have the best of both worlds at my disposal.

My arm is much, much, better Kaju, just because of these two great products.

Kindest regards,

Becky
