British doctors are reporting record numbers of patients stricken down with the debilitating Wii-itis. This phenomenon is affecting at least 10 people each week. Common complaints include sore shoulders or knees after sessions with Wii Fit or Wii Sports.
Broomfield Hospital's Dev Mukerjee commented:
"There has been a 100% increase in patients complaining of Wii-itis. I've seen many patients aged between 8 and 13, I've also seen adults. It is possible that Wii-itis may lead to rheumatism and arthritis in later life, patients often have inflammation of the shoulder or wrist. People who are double-jointed are most likely to suffer from Wii-knee, and in extreme cases the kneecap can be dislocated or can even pop out".
If your kneecap has popped out, you might want to try a different technique in my medical opinion. Physicians are recommending that people stretch before getting their exercise on.
