Tieu An (China) is a beautiful, sociable and responsible office worker. In the past few months, the company has many important projects, so she often has to work overtime. She thinks that is also the reason why she often feels headaches, sometimes fatigue, stiff neck.
At first, she didn’t pay much attention, when it hurt, she rubbed hot oil or used a pain reliever patch. However, the condition got worse and worse, pain even when walking or lying in one place. The seniors in the company thought that Tieu An was stressed and overworked, so they introduced her to a neurologist. Examination revealed nothing abnormal, she was prescribed a little sedative, pain reliever and advised to rest in moderation.
Two days ago, while working, Tieu An felt a severe pain in her head. The pain this time is very different, centered around the ears, stiff pain in the back of the neck, shoulder blades with chest tightness until it is difficult to breathe.
Colleagues rushed to call a taxi to take her to the local hospital. After taking x-rays and doing other in-depth tests, the doctor said that Tieu An had severe cervical spondylosis. Some nerves are pinched leading to acute pain in many parts of the body.
This is a very common disease among office workers
Tieu An was very surprised, she said that bone and joint diseases, especially degenerative diseases, usually only occur in the elderly. She is only 22 years old, how can she get it, still at the end of stage 3.
At this time, the disease has caused severe damage to nerves, bones, discs and even the spine. The doctor said that without urgent intervention, it will lead to serious imbalance and limitation of movement, even difficult to avoid muscle atrophy, very dangerous spinal deformity.
He also explained the fact that cervical spondylosis and lumbar disc herniation are very common in young people. Especially students, students, office workers. Because sitting in the wrong position, sitting for a long time in one place, wearing high heels for many hours continuously, holding the phone or lying in the wrong way is the cause of the disease.
In the case of Tieu An, she often sits with her back hunched, bowed, and leans forward to look at the computer while working. Like many other people when using the phone, she has a habit of keeping her head down and lying on her side playing online games, surfing the internet for hours before going to bed.
When facing the doctor, even though she didn’t have a phone or computer in front of her, she still sagged her back, hunched her shoulders, and stretched her neck. Tieu An recounted that she herself did not realize that her sitting posture was so unsightly. Right from school, she got used to it, even often lying on the table reading or taking a nap.
She added, in fact, the signs of pain, making a “cracking” sound when turning the neck appeared more than a year ago. Currently, she deeply regrets her subjectivity and lack of knowledge. Tieu An also hopes other young people pay more attention to their health, taking her case as a lesson to learn.
