Back Pain in the Digital Age
It is true – back and neck pain are symptoms of the digital age. When we sit at a desk and stare at our screens for long periods of time, our spine innately collapses forwards which causes a C-shape bend when it should be in a perfect S-shape. This compression, occurring at the bottom and top of the spine (where it meets the shoulders), puts a lot of pressure on the lumbar and cervical spine which is a leading cause of back pain. The effects of neglecting back support may be incremental but in the long run, it could cause serious damage.
