Do You Suffer from iPosture?

Text Neck, women in orange shirt, textingTablets and smartphones are causing an epidemic of back pain as people hunch over devices

 

 

 

  • 84 per cent of 18-24 year olds have admitted to suffering back pain in the last 12 months, according to a survey by Simplyhealth
  • The results also showed almost all age groups spend as much time in front of a PC, laptop or tablet screen in total as they do asleep in bed
  • Brian Hammond, CEO of BackCare, warned hunching over handheld devices is a contributory factor in back pain reported by different generations

It sounds like the latest gadget from Apple. But ‘iPosture’ is being blamed for an alarming level of  back pain among 18 to 24-year-olds.

The term is being used to describe the stooped body shape adopted by those texting, emailing or playing games on their iPad or smartphone.

Some 84 per cent of those aged 18 to 24 admitted to having suffered back pain in the past year, in a survey by the healthcare provider Simplyhealth.

This age group now loses more working days a year to back pain than those in their parents’ generation.
