DO YOU SUFFER FROM “TECH NECK”?
According to The New York Times, people are increasingly falling victim to a condition called “tech neck.” Tech neck is caused by poor posture from using technology such as tablets, cell phones and computers.
- “When we bend our necks forward 60 degrees, as we do to use our phones, the effective stress on our neck increases to 60 pounds — the weight of about five gallons of paint.” – New York Times
- Those with poor posture are more likely to suffer from depressed mood and are less likely to be assertive or confident
- Chiropractic care breaks down scar tissue in neck and back caused by tech neck
- Posture improves, pain is alleviated, and depressed mood lessens
