What is Tech Neck?
The average human adult head weighs between 12-15 pounds. For anyone constantly looking down at their phone (typically held around waist-level), this awkward head angle can cause predictable pain on the joints ligaments and muscles in the neck. The tightness can travel, too, and can create added discomfort to the shoulders, arms, and upper back.
If putting the phone down is simply not an option, there are some ways to help avoid tech neck, such as:
- Keeping screens as close to eye-level as possible
- Maintaining a strong, upright posture while scrolling
- If at a desk, keep the monitor at eye-level – and stand to do work if that is an option
- Take frequent breaks to walk around and stretch these muscles – without the phone!
