How Your Texting or Facebook Posture Is Killing Your Neck Image – ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25393825


The way we carry ourselves plays an integral part in our long-term health. Bad posture – especially over prolonged periods of time – can lead to numerous health conditions such back and neck pain, inability to tolerate a certain position for long periods of time and even difficulty walking. The better your posture is, the less your risk of developing these musculoskeletal problems.

Certain jobs are noted for a higher risk for musculoskeletal problems. [1] These are jobs that are sedentary, where there is a limited amount of movement involved (e.g. office workers, medical technicians such as sonographers, and other similar occupations).



However, a new type of problem has arisen in recent years with the recent generation of portable devices. It now turns out that on average, people spend two to four hours with their heads tilted forward because of smart devices. [2] That amounts to 700 to 1400 hours each year spent being hunched over – a worrying statistic with potentially serious health consequences. Continually having bad posture could lead to chronic, continual pain and even surgery – not to mention the terribly unattractive hunched look.

What The Medical Community Says

A study published in the Surgical Technology International Journal in 2014 [3] revealed that the strain the spine carries increases as the neck is flexed. An adult head weighs anywhere between 10 and 12 pounds, and as you bend your neck forward, this weight becomes a lever. When the neck is bent forward at greater than 90 degrees, the force exerted on the spine can no longer be measured.

But these are all just numbers. It can be hard to imagine how much 40 or 60 pounds actually is without concrete examples. Bending your neck half-way down, which is at 45 degrees, causes a pressure of almost 50 pounds to be exerted on your spine – potentially leading to chronic injury.


What Can Be Done About It?

Avoiding these particular musculoskeletal problems caused by bad posture is as “simple” in theory as always sitting and standing straight with your neck and back in a neutral position (at 0 degrees). This places less stress on the spine, decreasing the risk of injuring it in the long run.

However, this poses a challenge simply due to deeply ingrained habits and the fact that our existing furniture was never designed to accommodate what we are doing with modern devices.

So for men and women who want to get rid of their awful hunched neck and fix their posture in order to move, sleep and breathe better, check out this awesome tutorial:

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
