Rehabilitation program for smartphone users

What is it about?

Postural correction combined with a selected exercise training programme improved the hand grip, key pinch grip strength, and upper extremity disability and symptoms associated with smartphone use among university students.

Why is it important?

Despite the reported association between mobile use and upper extremity symptoms there is a gap in the knowledge on how exercise and proper hand grasp can improve these symptoms. Considering the increased use of touchscreen mobile phones among young people it is important to identify how physical therapy interventions can reduce these symptoms.
