Capturing the perfect selfie can be great for your online persona, but it can also lead to a new injury – selfie elbow.

(Picture: An exercise to help tendons recover from selfie elbow is a simple bent wrist stretch, as demonstrated in this photo by Dr. Steven Chudik. When doing this exercise, it is important to remember to keep your elbow straight while you press your wrist down. If done correctly, you should be able to feel the stretch in your forearm. Dr. Chudik recommends doing this stretch three to four times per day for 10 to 15 seconds.)
