We often hear that good posture is essential for good health. We recognize poor posture when we see it formed as a result of bad habits carried out over years and evident in many adults. But only few people have a real grasp of the importance and necessity of good posture.
Mobile devices such as cell phones, iPads, laptops and electronic readers have made our lives more convenient. In today’s society, many people fear giving up their cell phones even for a few hours. While this makes it easier to accomplish tasks without being tethered to an office, this has also increased the amount of time we spend using these devices, which can adversely affect our health.
As technology advances, allowing us to do more tasks on smaller equipment, our bodies often pay the price. With a growing potential for injuries from tools we rely on, it’s a good time to learn how to minimize the risks.
