Pain in the Tech Neck

I spend far too much time on the computer or any of my other mobile devices and have noticed myself developing what is being called “Tech neck.”

 
A recently published story in issue #593 of the Surgical Technology International Journal reported this:
While it is nearly impossible to avoid the technologies that cause these issues, individuals should make an effort to look at their phones with a neutral spine and to avoid spending hours each day hunched over. The weight seen by the spine increases when flexing the neck at varying degrees. An adult head weighs 10-12 pounds in the neutral position. As the head tilts forward the forces seen by the neck surges to 27 pounds at 15 degrees, 40 pounds at 30 degrees, 49 pounds at 45 degrees and 60 pounds at 60 degrees.
 
Check out the images that show what was just described above of how much neck flexion equals pounds of neck stress. 
 
Just take a look around you at people every day on their devices as a reminder. Bet you can recognize your own neck position.
 
This got my attention and now that I am more aware and my posture is better. The neck you save may be your own. Now back to the computer … neck in neutral.

    TESTIMONY OF HOW I GOT CURED FROM GENITAL HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS WITHIN 7DAYS[with Herbal Traditional medicine].

    I was just 25 when I contracted Genital herpes.Other than the first two months of being symptomatic, for the next two years, I never had any relapses. So, it was no big deal to me.Then, when I was 27, 90\% of my days, nights, weeks and months were spent having constant, chronic, painful, blistering, itching, oozing and extremely contagious sores encompassing every layer of skin surrounding my genitals, anus and thighs.No sooner did one area heal then another outbreak occurred. When those sores healed, the previously healed area would crop up again, and so on and so on . . .

    Believe me, I tried everything including BHT, Lysine, acyclovir, creams, lotions, toothpaste, zorivax 5\% cream and pills too, bleach, (I would dab it on with a q-tip), ice, anything and everything.As if the sores weren't enough, there was the horrid pain of neuralgia, which I experienced on every part of my body, (you can't imagine how painful it gets when it's on your face!). . When I took a shower, even though the water temperature was normal, it would feel like hot drops of grease or cold drops of sleet.On one faithful day i read a testimony on internet of a lady who was cure by HERBALIST Called doctor osele herbs,so i contacted the same herbalist who send herbal cure to me through FEDEX company and i take the herbs for 1 week and i was fully cure after i got tested by my Doctor.You can also contact this herbalist via; doctoroselehealibghome@gmail.com

    Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will live on earth before the year runs out. I have been suffering from HSV 1&2 for the past 3 years now; I have spent a lot of money going from one places to another, , hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr sigolo helped someone to cure HSV 2, quickly I copied his email which is DR.SIGOLOHEALERTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then after using the herbal medication for 2 weeks, he asked me to go for medical check up which i did and I was free from the HSV1&2, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on http://doctorsigolohealertemple.webs.com/

    If all you probably did was food storage for the most important part of your preparations,
    you will have created a security internet for your self
    within the event of one thing so simple as loss of your job.

    What you published was actually very logical.
    However, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier
    title? I ain't saying your content isn't good., but
    suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk's attention? I mean Pain in the Tech Neck is a little
    vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post headlines to
    get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two
    to get people interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
