  • Smartphone posture epidemic

    15 April at 14:50 from atlas

    From the interview with Paul Henry and Heidi Haavik. If you like, you can watch the full interview on his website here. http://goo.gl/ZJE4Ih#axzz3XKhPNJi8

    Technology is doing some major damage to our younger generations, and it's not just their minds that are affected.

    A study by British chiropractors has found almost half of 16- to 24-year-olds have severe aches in the neck and back, which is up 60 percent on last year.

    The rise is being attributed to the fact we spend an average of 195 minutes a day looking at our smartphones.

    Chiropractors around the world believe that it's ruining the posture of a generation, and human neurophysiologist Heidi Haavik agrees - she joined Paul Henry this morning to discuss the study.

    "Your head is as heavy as a bowling ball," said Dr Haavik, so when you sit with your head down while looking at your smartphone, it is "hanging on your muscles and ligaments, actually causing serious damage to your spine".
