Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Neck area

Have you had a headache or sore neck lately? Have you been using your mobile phone more than normal?

Have you had a headache or sore neck lately? Have you been using your mobile phone more than normal?

The picture below really illustrates what the impact of where you hold the phone can be.

“The head weighs about 5kg. The neck supports the weight of the head which, depending on the angle of inclination, increases. The lower we look, the more our head weighs.

Depending on the cervical segment that takes weight and stress, the weight of the head fluctuates to less than 5kg, but if you lean it forward, it weighs more and more.

When bent at 60 degrees, it loads 22-27kg on the lower cervical vertebrae and down into the thoracic area. Indeed, the entire spine can be impacted.

What’s more, the plethora of soft tissue, fascia muscle, ligament and tendon support becomes tense and tired, increasing tension on the joints and discs.”
