Tight shoulders, sore necks, and even constant headaches seem to be a part of modern life, especially for office workers. But do they have to be? Scientists and physical therapists are blaming the excessive use of smartphones for what they’ve dubbed “tech neck.” The condition is caused by the common posture adopted by phone users these days—hunched shoulders, chin down, neck curved forward.
While occasional adopting this posture is not harmful, it’s the constant use of phones that has led to tightened neck and shoulder muscles, creating poor posture and chronic pain. The only way to correct this condition is do the opposite of how people developed it: through consistent and constant adoption of good posture and natural muscle position. The most effective way to do this is through physical rehabilitation with a Manhattan sports medicine specialist.
