Do You Have Tech Neck?

Are you guilty of using your phone too much? Come on, admit it.

Do you spend hours on social media, You Tube, sending and checking your emails, researching online and texting? Most of us do, and whilst we don’t like to admit just how much time we spend on our smartphones, in the UK it’s likely to be somewhere around the 2-4 hours per day mark.Yes, up to 4 hours of your day is spent staring at a lump of technological plastic!Of course, phones aren’t the only piece of technology we regularly attach ourselves throughout the day. Tablets, laptops, desktop computers, you name it, we’re all over it. This is the technological age we live in, but it does come at a price. Could you have tech neck?This is widely known as ‘text neck’, or 'iHunch' and it can be extended to all types of screens, so we’ll go for tech instead.Put simply, this is neck strain and pain caused by incorrect posture when looking at a smartphone, laptop, tablet, or any type of screen for a long period of time. This can be whilst sitting at your desks or whilst on the go. We know that sitting for too long can be damaging, but the way you sit is also something you need to think about, as well as how much time you spend with technology in front of your eyes.Over time, whether you’re sat at ergonomic chairs or not, this can put excessive stress on your neck and cause chronic pain, long-term strain of the muscles, pinched nerves, and even disc herniation.None of these are problems you should be inviting into your life freely.
