Gamers Feeling the Pain: CTS, RSI, and Back Problems
The nutritional supplement industry notes repetitive stress injury and other painful ailments from years of video game play could be taking a toll on gamers as much of the core demographic is now aging into their thirties and beyond.
The reported pain spots aren't just in the hands, as everything from wrist pain to back and neck pain have been reported by more people between the ages of 35-55 who've said they experience discomfort after playing video games. According to Flexcin, the demand from this demographic has increased 34.7 percent in 2009.
