Vigilance: A guy from Nanjing plays iPad

The reporter learned from the Department of Acupuncture and Moxibustion of the Chinese Medical Hospital of Nanjing City that recently patients with facial paralysis have been in an endless stream, mainly young adults, and children of only a few years old. Experts pointed out that there is an upward trend in the number of young people, and not all of them are “cold”. The cervical spine caused by long-term desk work is also an important cause of facial paralysis symptoms.

Xiao Zhang, a 25-year-old salesperson, needed long-term business trips. In order to make the journey boring, Xiao Zhang specially bought an iPad at the beginning of the year. The iPad did not leave his hand either in the car or at night before going to bed. However, the cervical spondylosis has been particularly exacerbated recently and sometimes dizzy. After returning from a business trip to Guangdong this time, when the train arrived at the station, Xiao Zhang felt that his face was stiff, saliva flowed involuntarily, and his neck was stiff and he could not turn his head. Xiao Zhang did not care about going home and came directly to the hospital. Experts said that this is not a simple facial expression that people understand. In fact, it is caused by insufficient blood supply caused by cervical spondylosis, which leads to neurological dysfunction and affects the facial nerve.

According to the introduction of a Chinese medicine doctor in the Department of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the incidence of cervical spondylosis is gradually becoming younger, and it is related to sedentary sitting, poor sitting posture and sleeping position.
