自拍爱好者小心“自拍肘”

Are you an avid1 selfie-taker? You are at risk of developing “selfie elbow” which is slowly becoming a real medical condition. Like tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, an addiction2 to selfie-taking can cause a pain in your primary pic-snapping elbow, according to a report.

你是个狂热的自拍爱好者吗?那么你就面临着患上“自拍肘”的风险,而这一风险正逐渐地成为一项真正的医学问题。一项报告表明,就像“网球肘”或“高尔夫肘”,对自拍的高度着迷会导致你主要用于拍照的肘关节疼痛。
In a recent case, award-winning journalist and NBC’s Today show host Hoda Kotb went to a doctor complaining of pain in her elbow, elle.com reported.
最近elle.com上报道了一个案例,曾斩获奖项的记者兼NBC今日秀的主持人霍达?科特普对医生抱怨肘部疼痛。
自拍肘
“I went to the orthopaedist and he said, ‘are you playing tennis or ping-pong?’ I told him I was taking selfies,” Kotb was quoted as saying.
科特普说:“我去看了整形外科医师,他说‘你最近在打网球还是乒乓球?’我告诉他我在自拍。”
“When you take the picture, your arm is up, bent3 in a weird4 way and you just click, click, click — think about how many you take: 20, 30, or 40. Selfie elbow, everyone has it,” added Kotb, who is also a well-documented figure on photo-sharing website Instagram.
“当你在拍照的时候,你的胳膊抬起,很奇怪地弯曲着,而你却在咔嚓、咔嚓、咔嚓——想着你拍了多少照片:20,30还是40。自拍肘,每个人都深受其害,”作为一位早已在Instagram网站上分享过各种照片的名人,科特普这样补充道。
Her doctor recommended icing her elbow and certain exercises to help relieve the soreness.
她的医生建议给她的胳膊肘部敷冰块并且通过适当的锻炼来缓解酸痛。
“Basically, the interface5 between technology and the human body sometimes causes injuries of over-exuberance,” Jordan Metzl, sports medicine physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery in the US, was quoted as saying in a Cosmopolitan6 report.
乔丹?梅茨尔曾在接受Cosmopolitan杂志采访时说:“其实有时候过度使用科技产品会给人体带来伤害。”他是一位美国特色外科医院的医疗运动外科医师。
The problem is simply overuse.
这个问题相当普遍。
“You get selfie elbow from taking too many selfies, as you put too much stress on the muscle and it irritates the area where the muscle comes off the bone and you get this inflammatory response,” Metzl added.
“拍太多的自拍会让你形成一只‘自拍肘’,因为这只臂肘的肌肉承受太大压力,这些压力会刺激肌肉和骨骼连接的部分,因此你会感受到一种炎症性反应。”梅茨尔补充道。
The condition can be treated by taking pain relievers like Advil or Motrin for the inflammation and putting on some ice as well as stretching the muscles.
使用一些像埃德维尔、布洛芬等止痛药来治疗炎性反应,或者是冰敷,伸展肌肉,这些方法都可以治疗“自拍肘”。
“Maybe, people should alternate their arms — start spreading the load,” Metzl pointed7 out.
“或许人们应该换着臂膀自拍——分担一些压力,”梅茨尔指出。
From gaming and chatting to selfie-taking, texting and tweeting, there has been a significant rise in injuries in teenagers than before.
从打游戏到聊天再到自拍、发短信和发推文,相较于以前,青少年受到的伤害大大增加。
“For those who are dedicated8 selfie-takers, using a selfie stick can work like an arm extender and takes the pressure off the elbow,” suggested Charles Kim, musculoskeletal rehab specialist at Rusk Rehabilitation9 at NYU Langone Medical Center in the US.
“对于那些狂热的自拍爱好者来说,不妨使用自拍杆,它就像胳膊伸展器,能够减轻肘部压力,”查尔斯?金,一位来自美国纽约大学朗格尼医学中心鲁斯科康复医院的肌肉骨骼修复专家这样建议道。
