Tech Neck & Bad Shoulders

"Tech Neck" (aka text neck) is a term which describes pain around the neck and shoulders. It's caused by looking down on your devices (phones/tablets/computers) for long periods of time. This stresses the muscles and can give you headaches, stiff necks, neck spasms and pain between your shoulder blades.[5]

However according to Dr Marc Schwarts, "movement and stretches that support proper posture and shoulder position can help to reduce your painful symptoms".[6]
