Using Your Phone Too Much May Be Hurting Your Back

New Delhi, 17 Nov (ANI): A new study has revealed that slumping over the phone may be hurting your back. People spend an average of 2 to 4 hours each day with their neck bent at this unnatural angle while shooting off emails or texts and the success of social media has led to an epidemic of bad smart phone posture. According to the study bending your head at a 60 degree angle to get a better look at your selfies puts a lot of pressure on your cervical spine, the portion of the spine above the shoulders. When flexing the head forward at varying degrees and the loss of the natural curve of the cervical spine leads to incrementally increased stresses about the cervical spine. These stresses may lead to early wear, tear, degeneration and possibly surgeries. Nov 17, 2014
