What is Tech Neck and How to Fix It

tech-neck-1

As a blogger, I am always on my computer and smartphone checking my social media accounts and writing blog posts. I never thought about the effects this kind of constant bad posture can have on my overall health until I found out that there is a solution that doesn’t involve me quitting my job as a blogger.

First, let me tell you a little bit more about what “Tech Neck” actually is and how it develops in so many of us. I know for myself, I spend a good part of the day slumped over a laptop while writing blog posts and editing photos. Whenever I finish my work for the day, I usually put my laptop away, only to continue working from my cell phone while getting other things done.

It’s funny because once I started working from home full-time, I was so excited about the idea of creating my own hours and being able to have more time for me.

Boy was I sadly mistaken about what working from home full-time meant. I never would have thought that it meant actually working all of the time and never getting a break! By the time I’m done with my to-do list for the day, my inbox is full, my social media has lots of alerts that require responses, and there is always some unexpected task that needs to be done.

It seems like working from home is actually more work because it never ends, since I am attached to all of my devices constantly.

I am constantly hunched over my computer screen or smart phone and making my tech neck worse. When I can get away from my work, I notice the difference in my posture and can tell that my neck has been affected. I know that this is not just a blogger problem.

There are many careers and lifestyles that lead to problems with tech neck. My daughter spends a good part of her day in school on computers and even her smartphone. Like most kids, the technology doesn’t end there; when she gets home, she enjoys playing video games on her computer and talking with her friends on her cell phone.

I worry about this entire generation suffering from tech neck, but thankfully, there is a solution! Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator® (Model 1400-D).   This product has TWO air cells (an upper and lower air cell) that work both the neck and UPPER back/hump area. This is the area most affected by our constant technology usage and commonly referred to as tech neck.

Forward Head Posture (Tech Neck) is damaging the necks and backs of our younger generation!  Tech devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers, as well as gaming, force youngsters forward and down, chronically compressing discs and joints at the critical developmental stage. Hunched posture, chronic headaches, sore neck, sore back, and spinal degenerative changes common in the elderly, are now seen in early life!

Posture Pump® neck and back disc hydrators® were invented to counteract these and other harmful postural positions. These natural spinal curves of the neck and back are essential. Without them, weight is forced onto the soft disc tissue, crippling normal bio mechanics and facilitating degenerative joint disease.

Posture Pump® reinforces the normal and natural curves of the neck and back, hydrates the joints of the neck and back, decompresses joints and increases ranges of motion, reduces neck and back pain, headaches, and stiffness. I love that it is a comfortable and easy to use product right in the comfort of your own home.

I didn't realize I had tech neck until I read this post. I really need to change that. I get really stiff neck and headaches.
