How Heavy is Your Head?

2

 

If you know anyone who huddles over their cell phone for extended periods of time, they’re doing more harm to their necks than they may realize.  But the truth is, for every inch our heads move forward we’re putting an extra 10 pounds of pressure (or more) on our necks.  As a result, a two-inch head tilt while sending texts or reading cell phone messages is like wearing an enormous sack of potatoes around your neck!  And if you repeat this motion several times a day and you’re literally creating extra pain and extra strain for your neck and spine.

It can be all too easy to hunch over your computer or crouch at your desk as you’re using technology.  A worthwhile challenge:  Don’t forget to be conscious of your head tilt as you finish out your work week.  Take frequent breaks from whatever mobile device you’re using and give your neck a well-deserved rest!
