The 5 Most Destructive Postures From Using Personal Electronic Devices Such As Smart Phones, Laptops, Tablets And Video GamesSaturday, September 13th, 2014
Dr. Walter Salubro, Chiropractor In Maple (Vaughan) Gives A Chiropractic Perspective On Overuse Of Electronic Media Devices And Posture Problems
It’s a modern, fast-paced age of technology and social media and the overuse of using handheld devices has skyrocketed. It seems that people of all ages, from infants to seniors are now using portable media players and handheld electronic devices.
If you find yourself in any of these positions when using your personal electronic device, you are putting undue strain, stress and pressure on the muscles, discs and nerves of your spinal column.
It may lead to a kink in your neck or tightness in your shoulders today, but in 10 to 20 years, it can lead to degenerative arthritic changes, chronic spinal misalignments and decades of stress on your nervous system (the master control system of your body).

Chronic, repetitive overuse of handheld electronic devices in bad postural positions as shown above can lead to an array of pains and discomforts, like muscle strains, neck pain, back pain and headaches. As well, over many years and decades, it can lead to spinal degenerative arthritis.
