Having prolonged or repetitive head posture using a smartphone is known to be a risk factor for neck-shoulder pain symptoms. When standing while texting, browsing or watching videos the head is in a approximately 35 -45 degree angle from vertical, this angle becomes significantly larger when sitting. Over time the spinal kinematics of smartphone usage, two handed, one handed, seated or standing leads to postural changes and altered cervical movement .
To offset postural changes in this technological age it is important to make head and neck training a common practice in our physical education and sport programs and this training becomes an integral part of our lifestyle.
