Mobile phones and your posture

Smartphone users who experience upper back pain or stiffness of the neck may want to consider this: their smartphone use may be ruining their posture and, consequently, their mood.

Because the body is contorted when one is using a smartphone, the pressure on the neck increases. Experts believe this pressure results in a condition similar to the dowager’s hump. The upper back of a person becomes frozen into a forward curve.

For smartphone users, this stoop is called the ‘iHunch’. If you need any help with this just get in touch with us.
