End Neck Pain from Computers and Phones with Coastal Integrative Health

Written By Coastal Integrative Health on May 17, 2019

iStock 598557730Smartphones and computers have definitely made our lives easier. Unfortunately, they also come with plenty of musculoskeletal hazards.

When you’re not tilting your head downwards to look at your phone, you’re probably sitting at a computer desk which isn’t exactly ideal for your neck and spine.

Coastal Integrative Health in Shallotte, NC provides well-rounded care focused on eliminating pain and preventing it from happening again.

What’s Causing Your Neck Pain?

Think about your daily posture for a minute. If you sit at a desk in front of a computer, there’s a good chance it’s not ergonomically designed for your height. This means your daily posture suffers, which puts stress on your musculoskeletal system.

If you’re too short, your knees may feel pain from dangling or sitting cross-legged. Your arms may flail upwards and cause tension in your shoulders.

If you’re too tall, your knees will feel compressed and you’ll find yourself hunched over your workspace.

There is also smartphone use and text neck. Tilting your head downwards to look at your phone can add anywhere from 27 to 60 pounds of weight and strain to your spine depending on the angle. This isn’t healthy and it leads to long-term damage.
