Here’s Why You Really Get Tech Neck

Imagine four 15-pound bowling balls atop your head, and you’ll understand why so many people now suffer from “tech neck.” Yep, the equivalent of about 60 pounds is added to the stress on your neck every time you look down at some wireless device — think texting, for example — potentially resulting in everything from headaches to back, shoulder, neck and arm pain.

Key to avoiding the condition? Proper posture (including chin up) — which doctors of chiropractic increasingly find themselves advising patients on, says the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, in addition to treating spinal alignment issues.
