Digital Art and Text Neck Syndrome

Wed Nov 12, 2014, 4:16 PM
I found out about this at a local hospital's family health and safety day and thought it would be good to pass along to digital artists, programmers, and anyone who uses digital devices (so, yes, just about everyone!). Doctors are finding younger people are losing neck mobility due to craning the neck to look at digital devices and have called it "text neck syndrome."

There are a number of ergonomic corrections and also exercises and yoga moves one can do to strengthen the neck muscles and retain flexibility, which can be found on YouTube under searches such as "text neck syndrome exercises" and "forward head posture exercises." The doctors were recommending this quick exercise to do while waiting at red light in traffic, and this video has some good disclaimers and advice, too, in case one's neck is already so inflexible that a doctor's visit is needed: [link]

Take care for yourself and for your younger family members. :nod:

UPDATE: This appeared in the news this week and the article shows the weight strain on the neck and back:…

Thank you for visiting my page of SGA Wraith fanart! :painter:

:star:About Me: I live just southeast of one of the Great Lakes in the USA, in one of the world's largest Amish settlements. I liver here because I like the quiet and am interested in conservation and non-violent choices. My favorite places on Earth are the parks close to here with streams in them. I have been happily married for going on 10 years and have two rescue cats. My favorite Wraith is the one from Todd's delegation in "First Contact" and "The Lost Tribe" (who was given the nickname "Bullseye" by fellow Wraith fans) because he reminds me of my husband in every way, from the hairstyle to how he acts. :heart: Overall, the quieter scientists and technicians are my favorites. ^_^

Everything about Wraith (including their hair, uniforms, culture, organic technology, ambient hiveship lighting, and taking worshippers) is inspirational and I enjoy learning art news and sharing art with fellow dA Wraith fans. Although there are always exceptions, I find a greater proportion of Wraith artists on dA are more caring about social issues like world hunger, child protection, the environment, and homeless pets than the greater population in general. :aww: Those are the things that matter.

I enjoy helping others to create Wraith artwork. If there is a special screencap or picture you are looking for to complete your art, I will do my best to help.

:star:Artistic Vision and Goals: I view the Wraith as persons, not two-dimensional cannon fodder, and aim to depict them in relaxed, thoughtful, romantic, or heroic settings in their own culture and environment. I also prefer to depict Wraith with happy worshippers, like Neera in "The Hive."

:star:Requests: I am open to requests and art trades for on-screen SGA Wraith, in either realistic and comic book line-art style. At this time, I don't have the capability to draw original characters or realistic anatomy; my strength and passion is more so the use of vivid colors.

:star:Use of My Art: My digital Wraith art can be downloaded and enjoyed for private desktop viewing, but please ask me first if you want to use any of it elsewhere on other sites (and 'no' to sites promoting violence, hate, drugs, or cruelty of any kind).

:star:Comments: Please keep comments posted to my gallery appreciative about the SGA cast and crew and
each and every Wraith and Wraith society caste member. Yes, I understand the Wraith are fictional, but the real-life cast and crew behind them are not and the preferences and likes of other fans out there are not.

:star:Critiques: Honestly, I generally dislike giving or receiving critiques and disagree with 99% of them I see floating around.

:star:Llama Badges: Give a llama, get a llama

:star:Trolls and Blocking: Troll posts will be deleted and trolls will be blocked and reported to dA staff.

:star:Stargate Wraith Mania fan site: fan-collected, Wraithy resources with 4,000 behind-the-scenes pics of costumes, props, and Wraith and namelists can be found here -->…

A fellow wraith fan~!  Hand spaz plz I love their species, but I gotta say I have a particularly large soft spot for Todd.

Todd rocks! If it wasn't for Todd, I would not have found SGA. :)

Bro hug 
He definitely does! I found SGA through SG-1 and loved both, though SGA is my favorite for sure.  Can’t really beat wraiths~ XD

Thanks, still the humans were highly suspicious and eventually figured out he wasn't a human 5 hours later. :bounce: :pumpkin:
