Tech Neck is very common today with the increased use of handheld devices!
"Tech neck" is a recent ailment that has appeared with the advent of the technological age. With the use of computers many children and teens spend hours a day holding their heads in the same position to peer at the screen. To make the matter even worse, individuals have also become reliant on their smartphones, which cause them to bend their heads in unnatural angles to read their devices. Even people running and looking at their devices is putting extra strain and pressures on the vertebrae. All these activities have left many people with neck pain, tingling or numbness, arm pain & stiffness, plus the loss of flexibility that hampers their normal range of motion.
