“They may still sit on the couch and in and while they’re working either on the laptop or they may send it if you know what that the kitchen table but they’re not sitting actually properly so we do see more problems with neck and back pain enter.”
According to Busch, that pain can be felt in the arms and hands as well. For those spending extended time on technology devices, there could be long-term side effects on your body.
“They’re looking at their cell phones all the time and they’re starting to develop what people are calling texting neck because they’re doing that continuously and that reinforces in the muscles in the ligaments and in the nerves of that positioning where we start to see developmental changes,” said Busch. “Instead of having three curves in your spine, we start to see those curves straightening out.”
