There are a lot of diseases that the doctors call nowadays CRIs or computer related injuries. They include back and neck pain, spondylitis, eye-related problems etc. A recent study had been conducted among the IT employees in Bangalore, (one of the major high-tech cities in India) and it is found that 78 percent of them suffer from muscular-skeletal symptoms and 76 percent of them suffer from visual problems.
``This is an alarming signal for the health sector in India,’’ says Subhash Rajaratinam, a researcher in health science. The CRIs affect not only those whose work for 14 or 15 hours a day. It can affect you even if you are working, staring at the computer desktop only for 7 to 8 hours per day, observers warn.
Ramesh Thankappan, an IT professional from Kerala testifies this fact. ``I was working with an MNC and I had only 8 hours of work a day,’’ he says. ``I exercised pretty well in the mornings and never neglected the importance of diet. Yet I fell victim to back pain and joint pain, within seven years of my career,’’ he says.
It is true that allopathy and alternative medicines offer many effective treatments and many IT professional go for spondylitis ayurvedic treatment back pain Ayurvedic treatment etc. But it is no consolation for a researcher in the health sector. They feel that the present situation – in which more and more youngsters are becoming victims of health disorders -- will have a negative impact on the net general health scenario of the society.
