Tech can be a real pain in the neck. Seriously…. Every inch you crane your head forward can increase the weight of your head on your spine by an additional 10 pounds!

Let’s get real – the tech isn’t going away. The keys to avoiding injury from sustained and awkward posture are simple:

  • Improve the way you use your body when using tech. Watch this great video we produced to teach you how.

  • Don’t under estimate the importance of balance – take frequent periodic breaks to change position. And include physical activity to offset the repetitive strain of text neck. For more helpful suggestions, see this great post from the Alberta Chiropractic Association Is Technology Becoming a Pain in Your Child’s Neck, or ask the team of clinicians at our North York clinic.
