People continue to spend record-setting amounts of time in seated positions on technological devices. People spend unprecedented amounts of time on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones. Tech usage while positioned in lounge chairs, sofas, and living rooms paints a picture of the norm. The increased device usage creates added stress on postural and spinal health and leads to dangerous long-term outcomes.
The average postural position during smartphone usage consists of slumped shoulders and forty-five degrees of downward neck flexion. This position adds over forty pounds of stress and pressure on the spine and neck. Imagine a 40-pound weight resting on the back of the head and the strain being absorbed by small, delicate vertebrae and discs.
