Doctors fear a Wii knee epidemic
Now THAT’S a headline that sounds like something completely different when you say it out loud:
Doctors fear a Wii knee epidemic – Telegraph
Researchers at Leeds Teaching Hospital have identified an injury they called “Wii knee”. Last year, osteopaths reported that they saw an increase in back patients after Christmas, and blamed the trend on fathers trying to keep up with their children on the machines.
The British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) also said there had been an increase in the number of injuries caused by excessive use of Wii.
A Wii-knee epidemic sounds like one of Peter La Barbera’s worst nightmares… or maybe it’s a dream come true… you never know.
