Technology causing back and neck problems

Technology and our posture

Sedentary lifestyles and repeatedly looking down at mobile phones and tablets, is causing increasing numbers of young people to suffer with neck and spinal problems.

A recent survey found that 45% of 16 to 24 year olds are currently suffering, compared to 28% in the previous survey.
Tim Hutchful , from the British Chiropractic Association said, “When people use laptops or mobile phones in bed, they tend to forget their posture, hunch over the screen and leave their spine unsupported.”
