The Solution To Tech Neck

We live in the age of smartphones, laptops, and the dreaded tech neck. 😣

‘Tech neck’ is a term that refers to the soreness, stiffness, and possible injury that can result from bending your head downward to look at an electronic device for too long.

Why is tech neck bad for your health?

Tech neck can cause headaches, neck pain, pain in the shoulders, pain in the upper back, tingling or numbness in your hands, and even a loss of the natural curve of the spine, says Steven Knauf, doctor of chiropractic and executive director of chiropractic and compliance at The Joint Chiropractic in Scottsdale, Arizona. *article from Every Day Health

How can you avoid tech neck?

Try to avoid looking down at your devices!

Hold/set your phone or computer at eye level. Position your screen high enough so you can look straight out at it, rather than down. Your spine should be in one straight line from the top of your head to your tailbone. When looking at your devices, hold your head over your spine, rather than letting it drop forward.
