Poor Posture and Cell Phone Use

Your spinal nerves have direct connections to your arms, legs, muscles, organs and glands. Posture and spinal health correlates to overall health.

According to recent data, the average person spends 3 hours and 15 minutes on their phone each day. This is causing an epidemic in what doctors are calling ‘Text Neck’. Text Neck is the posture created when you look down, causing the neck to straighten and making the head go forward. Th weight of the head then pulls the cervical bones forward, causing an unhealthy straightening of the neck. This results in poor alignment and an unhealthy military neck. Over time, the vital life force from your brain can’t communicate to the cells as its meant to. Muscles will tighten and be strained. Wear and tear, arthritis will build up in the joints of the neck. This can lead to less health, headaches, poor energy, lack of focus and many other health challenges.

And 1 in 5 smartphone users spends upwards of 4.5 hours on average on their phones every day.
