Injuries Suffered From Playing Nintendo Wii

Have You Ever Injured Yourself Playing Wii?

Sometimes getting healthy can be a dangerous thing, even when playing a video game. Being sore after an intense round of Wii bowling isn't too unusual, but a young girl recently suffered a foot fracture while playing Wiii Fit. Yowza!

The 14-year-old girl fell off of the Wii balance board, probably while doing one of the yoga poses that requires a bit of balance from standing on one leg. If you're unfamiliar with the Wii balance board, it's an accessory you stand on like a skateboard that allows you to mimic real life balancing moves, twists, and turns. Besides Wii Fit, the balance board is also used in skateboarding, snowboarding, and rock climbing games.

This girl is definitely not alone. During an intense game of Wii Tennis, a friend of mine was hit with a Wiimote. The remote came flying out of her opponent's hand and hit her squarely on the jaw. I'm curious . . .
