Are you suffering with text neck? 🧐😢
Our heads weigh an average of 10-11lbs (4-5kg)!
So it’s no surprise that we struggle to keep them up.
We spend so much time on our devices – phones, Ipads and computers.
Often with our head/neck in awkward positions, sometimes we end up hunched right over for hours.
This can lead to our necks, shoulders and backs feeling sore, stiff, tight and sometimes even painful.
Here’s what you can do to help yourself:
• Take regular breaks & move often 🚶♂️
• Keep your head up & back (chin in slightly)
• Stretch your back, neck and shoulders 🧘♂️
• Try to use both sides of your body instead of always doing things with your dominate side
• Using hands free headphones instead of holding your phone to your ear 📞
I sat at the traffic lights once and smiled at the driver next to me in the other lane and indicated by pushing my chin back, so that my head was touching the head rest that he should do the same. He had no idea what I was on about and probably thought I was a complete weirdo.
The NHS website: “it is estimated that 8 in every 10 people in the UK are affected by back pain at some point in their lives.”
If you are suffering, do not suffer in silence. If you know what is causing you pain, there’s always things that you can do to relieve it.
If you are worried about your aches and pains please seek medical advice as each injury and treatment is different and often the quicker you get professional advice the quicker you can recover and feel better. 😊
