'N Nuwe studie van navorsers aan die Universiteit van York in Kanada het bepaal dat duisendjariges harder moet werk om vetsug te vermy

As u in die 80's of vroeë 90's gebore is, is die kans goed dat u gesukkel het om gewig te verloor.

Slegte nuus vir duisendjariges: u is moontlik die grootste generasie wat tans lewe, wat getalle betref, maar u is ook die groep wat die meeste sukkel om gewig te verloor. Universiteitsstudie gepubliseer in Obesity Research and Clinical Research dui daarop dat millennials (her: mense wat in die 80's of vroeë 90's gebore is) meer moet oefen en minder moet eet as vorige generasies om 'n gesonde BMI te behou.

Navorsers vergelyk dieetinname, fisieke aktiwiteit en BMI tussen verskillende ouderdomsgroepe. Hulle het gevind dat 20-jariges vandag dieselfde gewig optel as hulle dieselfde hoeveelheid kos eet, 35 jaar gelede. Die gemiddelde BMI van 'n jong persoon was in 2008 10 persent meer as in 1971. Navorsers blameer nie alleen ooreet nie; hulle dui ook op omgewingsfaktore.

"Dit is omdat gewigsbeheer eintlik baie meer kompleks is as net 'energie in' teenoor 'energie uit'," sê Jennifer Kuk, 'n professor aan die School of Kinesiology and Health Science aan die Universiteit van York in Ontario, in 'n persverklaring. 'Dit is soortgelyk aan om te sê dat u beleggingsrekeningsaldo bloot u deposito's is wat u onttrekkings aftrek en nie rekening hou met al die ander dinge wat u balans beïnvloed nie, soos skommelinge in die aandelemark, bankfooie of wisselkoerse.'

Charles Youn (29) het jare lank aan pyn in die rug en nekpyn gely, wat hom elke aand deur die skouers laat buk het en wakker gemaak het. Hy het pyn gehad en was voortdurend moeg en drink te veel koffie om die traagheid te bestry.

'Ek het geleer om daarmee saam te leef', sê Youn, wat besig is met die ontwikkeling van outward bound sonder winsbejag en wat aan die Upper East Side woon. 'My boonste rug en nek sou so styf wees. My nek was altyd vorentoe gebuig, en ek het net gedink dit is hoe dit gaan wees. ”

‘ Ons sien dit by jonger en jonger kinders omdat hulle hul telefone op 'n jonger ouderdom kry. ’

- Dr Brian Wallace, chiropraktisyn

Youn het die afgelope herfs geraadpleeg met chiropraktisyn, dr. Christian Kang, wat 'n praktyk in die Flatiron -distrik het en verduidelik dat Youn sy probleem in sy handpalms hou: sy skootrekenaar en iPhone veroorsaak sy pyn.

Youn ly aan 'n 'tegniese nek' of 'n voorhoofsindroom, 'n pynlike, toenemend algemene toestand wat veroorsaak word deur ure per dag oor toestelle te sak wat die nek sy natuurlike kromme laat verloor - en 'n fisiologiese wanbalans in die bolyf veroorsaak. Voorheen gesien by middeljarige of ouer lessenaars en tandartse wat oor pasiënte neig, kom dit nou voor by jonger geslagte wat grootgeword het met slimfone, tablette en ander persoonlike toestelle.

'Nou het 20-jariges die gesondheid van die ruggraat van 'n 30- of 40-jarige. Dit is 'n epidemie, 'sê Kang.

Dr Brian Wallace, 'n chiropraktisyn in Bernardsville, NJ, sê hy sien dieselfde in sy praktyk. 'Ons sien dit by jonger en jonger kinders omdat hulle hul telefone op 'n jonger ouderdom kry,' sê hy. 'Dit is een van die algemeenste dinge wat ons sien.' Volgens 'n studie van die navorsingsfirma Influence Central in 2016, is die gemiddelde ouderdom waarop 'n Amerikaanse kind hul eerste slimfoon kry, 10,3 jaar.

In hierdie röntgenfoto van 'n pasiënt met vorentoe-kop-sindroom, wat kan voortspruit uit leun oor selfone en skootrekenaars, toon die rooi lyn 'n afwykende nek en ruggraat. Die groen lyn verteenwoordig die ideale natuurlike ruggraatkromme, sê chiropraktisyn Christian Kang. Met vergunning van Kang Corrective Chiropractic

Namate die liggaamshouding vererger, strek die boonste rugspiere uit, terwyl die spiere aan die voorkant van die liggaam swakker word en die nek vorentoe kruip, wat die kop minstens 10 pond swaarder kan laat voel as wat dit is. Dit veroorsaak nie net strukturele probleme in die nek en rug nie, maar Wallace sê dat dit ook asemhalings- en paniekprobleme kan veroorsaak.

'As u 'n vorentoe-gerolde houding het, het dit 'n groot impak op die asemhaling. Kinders het vlak asemhalings geword, wat dan die angsvlakke beïnvloed omdat u senuweestelsel nie behoorlik kan funksioneer nie, ”sê Wallace en voeg by dat mediese probleme soos asma en allergieë kan ontwikkel.

Dr Vito Minervini, 'n chiropraktisyn in Rockaway, NJ, sê jong vroue is veral vatbaar vir die toestand omdat hulle 'n laer spierdigtheid in hul bolyf het.

"Dit is oral sleg, maar ouens kan dit meer vat omdat hulle meer gespierd is," sê Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, 'n entrepreneur en blogger in Houston, weet dit maar al te goed. Die 27-jarige stigter van Bumble Brain Box, 'n intekeningdiens wat fokus op kinderontwikkeling, het gesien hoe haar liggaam eenvoudig opgee toe haar onderneming twee jaar gelede begin posvat.

'Ek het elke dag letterlik ure lank na my telefoon en skootrekenaar gekyk. Twee van my skywe het hernia gekry en dit het in die senuwees gedruk en toe het die spiere in my skouers baie hard geword, ”sê Khiljee.

Die dokters van Khiljee was duidelik: haar te veel gebruik van tegnologie het die skrikwekkende uiteensetting aangevuur.

'Dit is moeilik om te verduidelik, maar my nek kon nie die gewig van my kop ondersteun nie. Ek het geen mobiliteit gehad nie. ” Sy soek desperaat na oplossings, waaronder om 'n gemaklike bed te laat vaar. 'My bed was te sag, so ek het maande op die vloer geslaap.

Sania Khiljee moes haar loopbaan ophou om op haar gesondheid te fokus.

Namate die druk en pyn toeneem, het sy 'n pynlike besluit geneem om haar jong onderneming te verkoop en haar daarop toe toespits om haar gesondheid te herstel - insluitend weeklikse afsprake met 'n fisioterapeut en 'n akupunktur. Sy is nog steeds besig om te blog en werk in sosiale media-bemarking, maar sy het haar prioriteit goed gestel.

'Ek is nog nie heeltemal klaar nie, maar ek is uiteindelik besig om te herstel,' sê Khiljee, wat besef het dat sy nie alleen was toe sy op Facebook oor haar gesondheidsprobleme geplaas het nie.

'Ek het ongeveer 100 opmerkings gehad van mense wat sê dat hulle dieselfde probleme het,' sê sy. “Dit was almal mense van my ouderdom.”

Maar duisendjariges wat deur iPhone beset is, wil die hele dag deur Instagram en Snapchat kyk en wil nie erken dat hul kosbare elektroniese lewenslyne hul gesondheid kan benadeel nie.

Minervini sê sy kantoor is 'n draaideur van ontkenning. Pasiënte kry nekpyn en dink nie aan dat dit 'n tegnologiese probleem is nie.

'Hulle sal sê:' Ek weet nie waar hierdie pyn vandaan kom nie ', en dit is 'n heeltemal belaglike verklaring. U [sien] hulle gebukkend oor hul telefone in die wagkamer. ”

Charles Youn ondergaan 'n sessie op 'n trekkrag -eenheid om sy servikale ruggraat te dekompresseer. Chiropraktisyn Christian Kang sê dat hy dit twee tot drie keer per week 10 tot 20 minute lank op pasiënte met 'n tegniese nek gebruik. Brian Zak Brian Zak

Hy het die kantoor van die polisie geword.

'Ek het pasiënte wat met hul kinders inkom, en elke kind is in die wagkamer met 'n toestel in 'n slegte postuur. Ek gaan uit en skree heeltyd op hulle - en dit is nie eers my pasiënte nie. Dit is nie 'n natuurlike posisie nie, en jy sal uiteindelik jou ruggraat vernietig. "

Die skade ongedaan te maak is 'n proses wat insluit die breek van slegte gewoontes, die neem van staande pouses en die doen van oefeninge soos joga, skuimrol en rek wat goeie vervoer bevorder en die spiere van die kern en bolyf versterk. Kenners raai pasiënte ook aan om mobiele toestelle met hul elmboë op 180 grade te hou sodat die skerm voor hul gesigte is.

Minervini sê vroeë ingryping is die sleutel tot die bestryding van 'n leeftyd van verswakkende gesondheidskwessies.

'' U moet kennis neem van u slegte gewoontes en daarteen werk. '

Youn, vir die eerste keer, is spyt oor al die tyd wat hy deurgebring het terwyl hy oor sy telefoon gesit het. Hy het Kang begin sien vir ruggraataanpassings en oefeninge om sy gerolde skouers te bestry. Na 36 sessies het sy postuur verbeter, hy voel langer en die pyn verminder.

Boonop slaap hy nou lekker.

'Ek wens ek het meer opleiding hieroor gehad as 'n tiener. Om dit alles te weet, sal baie spanning vir mense in hul twintigerjare voorkom, ”sê Youn. 'Ek het nou 'n postuurambassadeur geword.'

Maar duisendjariges wat deur iPhone beset is, wil die hele dag deur Instagram en Snapchat kyk en wil nie erken dat hul kosbare elektroniese lewenslyne hul gesondheid kan benadeel nie.

Minervini sê sy kantoor is 'n draaideur van ontkenning. Pasiënte kry nekpyn en dink nie aan dat dit 'n tegnologiese probleem is nie.

'Hulle sal sê:' Ek weet nie waar hierdie pyn vandaan kom nie ', en dit is 'n heeltemal belaglike verklaring. U [sien] hulle gebukkend oor hul telefone in die wagkamer. ”

Charles Youn ondergaan 'n sessie op 'n trekkrag -eenheid om sy servikale ruggraat te dekompresseer. Chiropraktisyn Christian Kang sê dat hy dit twee tot drie keer per week 10 tot 20 minute lank op pasiënte met 'n tegniese nek gebruik. Brian Zak Brian Zak

Hy het die kantoor van die polisie geword.

'Ek het pasiënte wat met hul kinders inkom, en elke kind is in die wagkamer met 'n toestel in 'n slegte postuur. Ek gaan uit en skree heeltyd op hulle - en dit is nie eers my pasiënte nie. Dit is nie 'n natuurlike posisie nie, en jy sal uiteindelik jou ruggraat vernietig. "

Die skade ongedaan te maak is 'n proses wat insluit die breek van slegte gewoontes, die neem van staande pouses en die doen van oefeninge soos joga, skuimrol en rek wat goeie vervoer bevorder en die spiere van die kern en bolyf versterk. Kenners raai pasiënte ook aan om mobiele toestelle met hul elmboë op 180 grade te hou sodat die skerm voor hul gesigte is.

Minervini sê vroeë ingryping is die sleutel tot die bestryding van 'n leeftyd van verswakkende gesondheidskwessies.

'' U moet kennis neem van u slegte gewoontes en daarteen werk. '

Youn, vir die eerste keer, is spyt oor al die tyd wat hy deurgebring het terwyl hy oor sy telefoon gesit het. Hy het Kang begin sien vir ruggraataanpassings en oefeninge om sy gerolde skouers te bestry. Na 36 sessies het sy postuur verbeter, hy voel langer en die pyn verminder.

Boonop slaap hy nou lekker.

'Ek wens ek het meer opleiding hieroor gehad as 'n tiener. Om dit alles te weet, sal baie spanning vir mense in hul twintigerjare voorkom, ”sê Youn. 'Ek het nou 'n postuurambassadeur geword.'


Tegnologie verander duisendjariges in 'n generasie van terugslag

Charles Youn (29) het jare lank aan pyn in die rug en nekpyn gely, wat veroorsaak het dat hy skouers gebuk het en elke nag baie keer wakker geword het. Hy het pyn gehad en was voortdurend moeg en drink te veel koffie om die traagheid te bekamp.

'Ek het geleer om daarmee saam te leef', sê Youn, wat besig is met die ontwikkeling van outward bound sonder winsbejag en wat aan die Upper East Side woon. 'My boonste rug en nek sou so styf wees. My nek was altyd vorentoe gebuig, en ek het net gedink dit is hoe dit gaan wees. ”

‘ Ons sien dit by jonger en jonger kinders omdat hulle hul telefone op 'n jonger ouderdom kry. ’

- Dr Brian Wallace, chiropraktisyn

Youn het die afgelope herfs geraadpleeg met chiropraktisyn, dr. Christian Kang, wat 'n praktyk in die Flatiron -distrik het en verduidelik dat Youn sy probleem in sy handpalms hou: sy skootrekenaar en iPhone veroorsaak sy pyn.

Youn ly aan 'n 'tegniese nek' of 'n voorhoofsindroom, 'n pynlike, toenemend algemene toestand wat veroorsaak word deur ure per dag oor toestelle te sak, wat veroorsaak dat die nek sy natuurlike kromme verloor - en 'n fisiologiese wanbalans in die bolyf veroorsaak. Voorheen gesien by middeljarige of ouer lessenaars en tandartse wat oor pasiënte neig, kom dit nou voor by jonger geslagte wat grootgeword het met slimfone, tablette en ander persoonlike toestelle.

'Nou het 20-jariges die gesondheid van die ruggraat van 'n 30- of 40-jarige. Dit is 'n epidemie, 'sê Kang.

Dr Brian Wallace, 'n chiropraktisyn in Bernardsville, NJ, sê hy sien dieselfde in sy praktyk. 'Ons sien dit by jonger en jonger kinders omdat hulle hul telefone op 'n jonger ouderdom kry,' sê hy. “It’s one of the most common things we see.” According to a 2016 study by the research firm Influence Central, the average age at which an American child gets their first smartphone is 10.3 years.

As posture worsens, the upper back muscles stretch out, while the muscles in the front of the body become weaker and the neck creeps forward, which can make the head feel at least 10 pounds heavier than it is. Not only does it cause structural problems in the neck and back, Wallace says it can also spark breathing and panic issues.

“When you have that forward-rolled posture, it has a profound impact on the breathing. Children have become shallow breathers, which then affects anxiety levels because your nervous system can’t function properly,” says Wallace, adding that medical issues such as asthma and allergies can develop.

Dr. Vito Minervini, a chiropractor based in Rockaway, NJ, says young women are particularly susceptible to the condition because they have lower muscle density in their upper body area.

“It’s bad all around, but guys can take it more because they have more musculature,” says Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, a Houston-based entrepreneur and blogger, knows this all too well. The 27-year-old founder of Bumble Brain Box, a subscription box service focused on child development, saw her body simply give out as her business began to take off two years ago.

“I was literally looking down at my phone and laptop for hours every single day. Two of my discs got herniated and it pushed into nerves and then the muscles in my shoulders got really hard,” says Khiljee.

Khiljee’s doctors were explicit: Her tech overuse was fueling the frightening breakdown.

“It’s hard to explain, but my neck couldn’t support the weight of my head. I had no mobility.” She desperately sought solutions, including forsaking a comfortable bed. “My bed was too soft, so I slept on the floor for months.”

Sania Khiljee had to put her career on hold to focus on her health.

As the pressure and pain mounted, she made an agonizing decision to sell her fledgling business and focus on regaining her health — including weekly appointments with a physical therapist and an acupuncturist. She is still blogging and works in social-media marketing, but she’s made good posture her priority.

“I’m not fully over it yet, but I’m finally recovering,” says Khiljee, who realized she wasn’t alone when she posted about her health woes on Facebook.

“I had about 100 comments of people saying they had the same issues,” she says. “It was all people my age.”

But iPhone-obsessed millennials poring over Instagram and Snapchat all day don’t want to admit that their precious electronic lifelines might be detrimental to their health.

Minervini says his office is a revolving door of denial. Patients come in for neck pain and balk at the suggestion that it’s a technology issue.

“They’ll say, ‘I don’t know where this pain is coming from,’ and it’s a completely ridiculous statement. You [see] them hunched over their phones in the waiting room.”

He’s become the office posture police.

“I have patients coming in with their kids and every kid is out in the waiting room with some sort of device in a crappy posture. I go out and yell at them all the time — and they aren’t even my patients. It’s not a natural position and you’ll destroy your spine, eventually.”

Undoing the damage is a process that includes breaking bad habits, taking standing breaks and doing exercises such as yoga, foam rolling and stretches that promote good carriage and strengthen core and upper body muscles. Experts also advise patients to hold mobile devices with their elbows at 180 degrees so the screen is in front of their faces.

Minervini says early intervention is key to combating a lifetime of debilitating health issues.

‘“You have to be cognizant of your crappy habits and work against them.”

Youn, for one, regrets all the time he spent slumped over his phone. He began seeing Kang for spinal adjustments and exercises to combat his rolled shoulders. After 36 sessions, his posture has improved, he feels taller and there’s been a reduction in pain.

Plus he’s now sleeping soundly.

“I wish I had more education on this as a teen. Knowing all this would prevent a lot of stress for people in their 20s,” says Youn. “I’ve become a posture ambassador now.”


Tech is turning millennials into a generation of hunchbacks

For years, Charles Youn, 29, suffered from upper-back pain and neck soreness that made him hunch his shoulders and caused him to wake up numerous times throughout every night. He was in pain and constantly fatigued, drinking too much coffee to combat the sluggishness.

“I learned to live with it,” says Youn, who works in development for leadership nonprofit Outward Bound and lives on the Upper East Side. “My upper back and neck would be so tight. My neck was always bent forward, and I just thought that’s how it was going to be.”

‘We’re seeing it in younger and younger children because they’re getting their phones at a younger age.’

- Dr. Brian Wallace, chiropractor

This past fall, Youn consulted with chiropractor Dr. Christian Kang, who has a practice in the Flatiron District and explained that Youn was holding his problem in the palms of his hands: His laptop and iPhone were causing his pain.

Youn suffers from “tech neck,” or forward head syndrome, a painful, increasingly common condition caused by slumping over devices for hours a day that leads the neck to lose its natural curve — and triggers a physiological imbalance in the upper body. Previously seen in middle-age or older desk jockeys and dentists who hunch over patients, it’s now materializing in younger generations who grew up with smartphones, tablets and other personal devices.

“Now, 20-year-olds have the spine health of a 30- or 40-year-old. It’s an epidemic,” says Kang.

He’s become the office posture police.

“I have patients coming in with their kids and every kid is out in the waiting room with some sort of device in a crappy posture. I go out and yell at them all the time — and they aren’t even my patients. It’s not a natural position and you’ll destroy your spine, eventually.”

Undoing the damage is a process that includes breaking bad habits, taking standing breaks and doing exercises such as yoga, foam rolling and stretches that promote good carriage and strengthen core and upper body muscles. Experts also advise patients to hold mobile devices with their elbows at 180 degrees so the screen is in front of their faces.

Minervini says early intervention is key to combating a lifetime of debilitating health issues.

‘“You have to be cognizant of your crappy habits and work against them.”

Youn, for one, regrets all the time he spent slumped over his phone. He began seeing Kang for spinal adjustments and exercises to combat his rolled shoulders. After 36 sessions, his posture has improved, he feels taller and there’s been a reduction in pain.

Plus he’s now sleeping soundly.

“I wish I had more education on this as a teen. Knowing all this would prevent a lot of stress for people in their 20s,” says Youn. “I’ve become a posture ambassador now.”


Tech is turning millennials into a generation of hunchbacks

For years, Charles Youn, 29, suffered from upper-back pain and neck soreness that made him hunch his shoulders and caused him to wake up numerous times throughout every night. He was in pain and constantly fatigued, drinking too much coffee to combat the sluggishness.

“I learned to live with it,” says Youn, who works in development for leadership nonprofit Outward Bound and lives on the Upper East Side. “My upper back and neck would be so tight. My neck was always bent forward, and I just thought that’s how it was going to be.”

‘We’re seeing it in younger and younger children because they’re getting their phones at a younger age.’

This past fall, Youn consulted with chiropractor Dr. Christian Kang, who has a practice in the Flatiron District and explained that Youn was holding his problem in the palms of his hands: His laptop and iPhone were causing his pain.

Youn suffers from “tech neck,” or forward head syndrome, a painful, increasingly common condition caused by slumping over devices for hours a day that leads the neck to lose its natural curve — and triggers a physiological imbalance in the upper body. Previously seen in middle-age or older desk jockeys and dentists who hunch over patients, it’s now materializing in younger generations who grew up with smartphones, tablets and other personal devices.

“Now, 20-year-olds have the spine health of a 30- or 40-year-old. It’s an epidemic,” says Kang.

Dr. Brian Wallace, a chiropractor based in Bernardsville, NJ, says he’s witnessing the same thing at his practice. “We’re seeing it in younger and younger children because they’re getting their phones at a younger age,” he says. “It’s one of the most common things we see.” According to a 2016 study by the research firm Influence Central, the average age at which an American child gets their first smartphone is 10.3 years.

As posture worsens, the upper back muscles stretch out, while the muscles in the front of the body become weaker and the neck creeps forward, which can make the head feel at least 10 pounds heavier than it is. Not only does it cause structural problems in the neck and back, Wallace says it can also spark breathing and panic issues.

“When you have that forward-rolled posture, it has a profound impact on the breathing. Children have become shallow breathers, which then affects anxiety levels because your nervous system can’t function properly,” says Wallace, adding that medical issues such as asthma and allergies can develop.

Dr. Vito Minervini, a chiropractor based in Rockaway, NJ, says young women are particularly susceptible to the condition because they have lower muscle density in their upper body area.

“It’s bad all around, but guys can take it more because they have more musculature,” says Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, a Houston-based entrepreneur and blogger, knows this all too well. The 27-year-old founder of Bumble Brain Box, a subscription box service focused on child development, saw her body simply give out as her business began to take off two years ago.

“I was literally looking down at my phone and laptop for hours every single day. Two of my discs got herniated and it pushed into nerves and then the muscles in my shoulders got really hard,” says Khiljee.

Khiljee’s doctors were explicit: Her tech overuse was fueling the frightening breakdown.

“It’s hard to explain, but my neck couldn’t support the weight of my head. I had no mobility.” She desperately sought solutions, including forsaking a comfortable bed. “My bed was too soft, so I slept on the floor for months.”

Sania Khiljee had to put her career on hold to focus on her health.

As the pressure and pain mounted, she made an agonizing decision to sell her fledgling business and focus on regaining her health — including weekly appointments with a physical therapist and an acupuncturist. She is still blogging and works in social-media marketing, but she’s made good posture her priority.

“I’m not fully over it yet, but I’m finally recovering,” says Khiljee, who realized she wasn’t alone when she posted about her health woes on Facebook.

“I had about 100 comments of people saying they had the same issues,” she says. “It was all people my age.”

But iPhone-obsessed millennials poring over Instagram and Snapchat all day don’t want to admit that their precious electronic lifelines might be detrimental to their health.

Minervini says his office is a revolving door of denial. Patients come in for neck pain and balk at the suggestion that it’s a technology issue.

“They’ll say, ‘I don’t know where this pain is coming from,’ and it’s a completely ridiculous statement. You [see] them hunched over their phones in the waiting room.”
