Are smartphones bad for your posture?
It’s an epidemic. Obviously, we live in such a forward world, and I’m sure with your job and you sit at a desk and your head is down at your computer. We’re already very forward, you know when I say forward; arms out, head down. It’s exacerbated by at lunch you’re doing this, at home you’re doing this, watching TV with your wife. You guys are both like this, heads down, repetitive motion with your hands.
What happens is, when my head is continually looking down it’s going to create a lot of stress and pressure on my upper back and neck. It might create some weakness which could contribute to the problem as well. Overuse injuries, I’m sure you’ve heard about Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, different types of neurological things from your elbow; that repetitive motion like typing.
So, it’s just we already live in this environment and I think it’s exacerbated and made so much worse by a lot of this, so get off your device. Get up. Start moving around.
And if you need help from damage that’s already been done, make sure to contact a trusted chiropractor.
