What A Pain: The iPad Neck Plagues Women More

The answer is likely yes — especially if you're a young adult or a woman. "iPad neck" — persistent pain in the neck and upper shoulders caused by slouching or bending into extreme positions while using tablet computers — is a growing problem among Americans, according to a new UNLV study.

Findings, released last week in The Journal of Physical Therapy Science, show:

"iPad neck," sometimes called "tablet neck," is usually associated with sitting without back support, such as on a bench or on the ground, or slumping over the tablet while it rests in the user's lap. Other postures significantly associated with pain included using tablets while lying on the side or back.

The condition is more prevalent among young adults than older adults.

Women were 2.059 times more likely to experience musculoskeletal symptoms during iPad use than men.

The Medical Minute: Ways To Promote Healthy Summer Sleep Routines For Your Family

The lazy days of summer can be peaceful and relaxing, but they can also wreak havoc on your body’s internal clock. Longer days, evening outdoors activities and a lack of school the next morning can throw even the most conscientious family’s sleep schedules out of whack.

Dr. Cheryl Tierney, chief of behavior and developmental pediatrics at Penn State Children’s Hospital, said it’s unrealistic to expect children and parents to keep the same rigid school year schedule during the summer months.

But that doesn’t mean summer should turn into a sleep in free-for-all that ends with a rough crash back to reality come Labor Day.

“It’s about having a balance,” she said. “Compromise is reasonable.”

Younger children often wake up at the same time every day, whether they have to go to school or not. When they are going to bed later, it means they simply get less sleep. That can produce the same ty

Lyme Disease Cases Among Children Are On The Rise In Western Pennsylvania

Lyme disease cases among children are on the rise in western Pennsylvania, according to researchers from Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. The findings are published online in Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne infection in the United States and the geographic expansion of Lyme disease has been identified by state and local health departments and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studies, but until now, western Pennsylvania was not considered a Lyme endemic area.

“This study details the shift of western Pennsylvania from a Lyme-naïve to a Lyme endemic area, highlighting the change in symptoms seen clinically and the types of doctors caring for these patients,” said Brian Campfield, MD, pediatric infectious diseases specialist, Division of Infectious Diseases, Children’s Hospital. “Our experience may serve as a model for other

Weight Loss Reverses Heart Condition In Obesity Sufferers

Australian research shows for the first time that obese people who are suffering from atrial fibrillation can reduce or reverse the effects of the condition by losing weight.

Published in the heart journal Europace, the researchers found that a 10% loss in weight along with management of associated risk factors, can reverse the progression of the disease. They studied 355 overweight or obese people who lost varying amounts of weight.

The research was led by the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders at the University of Adelaide and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

“This is the first time that evidence has been found that if people who are obese and are suffering from atrial fibrillation the disease can be alleviated by losing weight and treating lifestyle factors,” says lead author Melissa Middeldorp, PhD researcher from the University of Adelaide’s Cen
