Collagen is found in fibrous tissues such as skin, ligaments and tendons, as well as in the bones, blood vessels, the cornea of the eye, and in the gut. Collagen has very good tensile strength, it is one of the long fibrous structural proteins that gives cells structure from the outside, as well as supporting most of the body’s tissues. Collagen is an extremely important component to the body, and as we get older, our production of collagen starts to slow down.
Collagen is needed for conserving the youthfulness of skin and getting rid of wrinkles. It is also important for the elasticity of the connective tissue of the skin, allowing it to expand and contract without damaging any tissue.

The Smartphone: one of the greatest inventions of man-kind. Each month, 200 billion text messages are sent around the world. Each day, adults spend over 80 minutes on their Smart phones, doing tasks other than making phone calls. Now, everyone can check their e-mails, bank accounts, social networks, and even the weather on their phones. It’s not just adults who have become attached to their phones. In 2010, the Pew Research Center discovered that 75 percent of teenagers have cell phones and send around 100 text messages each day. Technology has revolutionized how we communicate, entertain, and receive information But we never stop to think how the development of technology affects our body.
Technology and Pain
A recent survey from the British Chiropractic Association shows that people tend to carry devices such as laptops, tablets, and cameras all at the same time. 24 percent of the people in the survey reported back pain from carrying around too many electronic devices. When people use devices, they tend to hunch their shoulders or bend down to see a screen as well as use their fingers and thumbs constantly to type or text.
Too much of this activity can cause pain in the shoulders, neck, back and fingers.
If you use technology for work or school constantly throughout the day, you can take steps to help prevent the development of pain which include:
- Hold your phone at eye level.
- Stretch your fingers regularly and try to avoid writing long emails on your phone.
- Take frequent breaks to let your hands and fingers rest.
- Try to limit the number of electronics needed for the day to help prevent strain on your back and shoulders with heavy loads.
