Tag Archives: neck pain

Thanks to my phone and my chair, my spine hates me!

I saw an article in the Atlantic recently about the stress that looking down at your iPhone puts on your neck. There is more to the story, but the graphic in the article makes it obvious that looking down like that for extended periods multiple times per day certainly isn’t natural.

 

This reminded me of a similar graphic describing the effects of prolonged sitting on the spine (and elsewhere)  in the Washington Post earlier this year.

 

No wonder back pain is such a huge problem!
