So there is a rumor going around about an injury called “Tech Neck”. It’s developed when you are looking down at you phone for a long period of time and it creates a wrinkle-like double chin on your neck, causing minor stiffness or pain. I’ve noticed businesses are promoting the scare so you can use their “special neck cream”, but there is an increasing number of people visiting the hospital for the pain.
If you are experiencing severe pain, it may be wise to go visit the hospital. Yoga and daily neck stretches are a good way to avoid “tech neck”. Standing desks are a trend to help improve your posture as well as chest supports what is used to help the neck and spine. However, getting off your phone with your family at the dinner table may help you just as much (*wink*).
