From work to leisure, the average person spends up to twenty-three days a year texting, browsing and communicating on smartphones, something that is causing potential damage to our bodies, says neck and spine experts NeckStar.    

The head can weigh up to 12lb, and the way smartphone usage alters our posture means that the angle which we adopt to look the at screen can increase the strain on the neck by up to almost six times as much. Although it isn’t practical to avoid smartphone use altogether, it is important to be conscious of the implications, and take steps to redress the impact.

According to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, health problems springing from smartphone use are on the rise, so there has never been a more important time for consumers to take steps to reduce their chances of “Smartphone Neck”. Holding devices at eye level for example will normalise the angle of the head, and avoids bad posture which can lead to debilitating discomfort and spinal injury. Taking frequent breaks from usage can also help eliminate prolonged unnatural positioning that exacerbates wear and tear on the neck.

Mario P of NeckStar, said:

“Smartphone Neck is a relatively new problem, but one that could have very serious long-term implications if people don’t take measures to protect themselves. Issues with posture can affect so many other parts of the body, and can cause headaches, abnormal spinal curvature as well as shoulder and back pain. Prevention is always better than care, so it is well worth investing in the health of your neck before a problem arises”.

NeckStar’s specially designed portable headrest works to relieve the nerve tracts in the neck and spine, as well as bringing the vertebrae in line which activates and strengthens the delicate musculature of the neck, which are most at risk of smartphone related damage.

Paying attention to posture at work could save companies millions in employee sick days, says neck and spine authority NeckStar.

Research has shown that back pain is one of the leading reasons for absence at work, with around three million individuals citing it as a cause for sick leave last year. Sick days cost UK employers in the region of £29 million a year, so encouraging those who are particularly susceptible to developing bad posture such as office workers to pay attention to how they sit is a worthwhile investment.

  • Ensure any screens are positioned at the correct angle and at eye level. It can help reduce pressure on the neck and spine, which can cause debilitating back pain.
  • Make sure the back is straight, with hips, ears and shoulders in line vertically. This is essential to good posture and spinal health, as is taking regular breaks where possible to move around.
  • Where necessary, request ergonomic furniture or accessories from your employer to keep your posture positive.

Mario P of NeckStar said:

“We spend a big portion of our lives working, so it’s essential to make sure that we pay attention to our posture during this time to avoid injury and illness. For employers, it makes sense economically to ensure your workers have information and equipment they need to minimise any discomfort that could lead to long-term damage and subsequent sick days, which cost your business money. Of course, it is up to each individual to look after their own health.”

NeckStar’s specially designed portable headrest can be used during breaks to bring the vertebrae in line, which helps to relieve the nerve tracts in the neck and spine.

The handy, self-assembly structure can be used on any flat surface such as desks or tables and can make a big difference in preventing and reacting to any strain caused by bad posture.

With an estimated 43 percent of people in the UK experiencing chronic pain, neck and spine experts, NeckStar, has offered those suffering with back pain tips for strengthening the spine to ward off those aches and pains.

The experts behind the company know that millions of people all over the world either don’t know how to strengthen the spine, or simply forget to do so. But the company has warned that failing to maintain the strength of this vital part of the skeleton could end in disaster for many people. As a result, NeckStar has put together a five-step plan for ensuring the UK’s spines are strong, aligned, and pain-free.

Mario P, CEO of NeckStar, said:

“The back is often one of the forgotten parts of the body, despite being incredibly important for fully-functioning limbs and bodily movement. Even those who undertake regular activity forget to exercise the core and back, and although this may not cause any problems for some, for millions, it can be the start of serious reoccurring problems that last a lifetime.

1. The first port of call, according to the experts, is to sleep right.

Allowing the spine to rest when asleep will ensure it has time to repair itself and relax back into its natural shape after a day of slouching over desks and slumping on sofas. Investing in supportive pillows and a good mattress can really make the world of difference and prevent that irritating lower back pain.

2. The second tip from the experts is to ensure exercise is gentle but effective.

It’s vital that the core muscles (the abdominal and lower back muscles) are strong and supple in order to take pressure off the lower back. Conducting simple core exercises, such as planks, sit-ups, and mountain climbers can really help support muscle growth and keep the centre of the body aligned.

3. Sitting down causes three times more pressure to be loaded on the discs in the lower spine than when stood.

Getting posture right is a key part of spinal health. Investing in a quality chair that supports the lower back, practicing good posture while seated, and taking regular breaks when sat at a desk can improve back health exponentially by strengthening it and encouraging it to be in a more upright position.

4. Footwear is another often overlooked part of back health.

Ill-fitting footwear and shoes that offer no support can cause added pressure on the back as it tries to keep the body aligned. Good footwear can actually help to strengthen the back by keeping it straight, and as a result, avoid injury when doing sports.

5. The final tip for keeping the spine strong is to look at diet.

A healthy diet that consists of a good proportion of lean protein, healthy fats, and lots of fruit and vegetables is key for building a lean body and muscles that support the spine. Diets rich in Omega-3s have also been shown to help decrease pain in the nerves of the spine.

For those suffering from aches and pains in the spine, NeckStar’s specially designed headrest provides relief.

It can also be used as a preventative measure, to curb any potential back or spine problems. Fully portable, it ensures pressure is taken off the fragile spine and nerve pathways are free.
