Have You Developed Selfie Wrist?

San Francisco physician, Levi Harrison, says he's seeing more patients complaining of wrist pain. Selfie wrist is a type of carpal tunnel syndrome that comes from hyper flexing your wrist or clutching your phone for long periods of time without moving.

Sharp pain, numbness, or even a tingling in the wrist are some symptoms that come with the condition. The doctor recommend putting your phone down to rest your hand and apply a cold pack to reduce any swelling to the affected area.

According to Statista, a minimum 62-percent of Americans have taken at least one selfie of themselves. A whopping 82-percent of people that take part are age 18 to 34.
