Use of Electronic Devices Linked to Huge Increase in Back and Neck Pain

Posted By Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain || 5-Jan-2016

It seems you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing many of the people around you hunched over their phones or tablets. That is why experts have predicted a huge increase in people with neck and back problems, especially among those aged 18-24. The combination of repeatedly looking down at smartphones and other devices, coupled with largely sedentary lifestyles, often results in poor posture and pain. Thus, the number of patients under the age of 30 visiting chiropractors has increased dramatically over the past decade.

Previously, the number one cause of neck and back pain in those under 30 was injury from car accidents. Now, it is more and more common for young people to require chiropractic care for reasons involving use of computers and mobile technology. IT consultants, especially, and other young people who work eight or more hours a day in front of computers, are at a high risk of developing neck and/or back pain. Back pain can be difficult to get rid of, and unfortunately, many people with back pain resort to using medication to mask their symptoms. We at Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain believe that a holistic chiropractic approach is the far better option because it is focused on treating the source of the problem rather than just the symptoms.
