JULIE MOON FROM MOON PHYSICAL THERAPY TALK ABOUT WHAT WE CAN DO TO PREVENT ACHES AND PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH ASSOCIATED WITH TECH NECK GOOD MORNING GOOD MORNING Kelly: THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW AND IT MAKES SENSE

DOWN AT YOUR SMART TONE WHAT IS TECH NECK? IT'S NOT A MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS THEY'VE COME UP WITH THIS TERM BECAUSE THEY FOUND THAT PEOPLE DEVELOP CHRONIC PAIN FROM OVERUSE OF TECHNOLOGY HEAD AND NEG PROTRUDING OVER THE BODY TO LOOK AT THE SCREEN IT IS DEVELOP INTO A SERIOUS CONDITION

ESPECIALLY YOUNGCOMS, BAYLOR UNIVERSITY DID A SURVEY, AND THEY ASKED HOW MUCH DO THEY SPEND ON THEIR PHONES AND COLLEGE STUDENT SPEND EIGHT TO TEN HOURS A DAY SO THAT'S HUGE OUR HEADS ARE HEAVY

THEY WEIGH ABOUT 10 TO 12 POUNDS AND THAT'S WHEN YOU'RE IN GOOD POSTURE YOUR BODY IS ABLE TO SUPPORT THE WEIGHT OF THE HEAD SO WHEN YOU'RE BENDING FORWARD TO LOOK AT YOUR SCREEN WHEN YOU GO FURTHER, YOU'RE DEALING WITH 60 POUNDS OF WEIGHT THAT'S A LOT OF STRESS

Kelly: WHAT ARE THE DANGERS? WITH ALL THAT STRESS, IT CAN LEAD TO BIG PROBLEMS WHEN PEOPLE ARE HOLDING THAT FOR PROLONGED PERIODS, YOU CAN HAVE STIFFNESS, HEADACHES, HEADACHES OVER TIME IF IT'S IGNORED YOU CAN DEVELOP SHARP PAIN, NUMBNESS DOWN THE ARMING YOU CAN HAVE DISPROTRUSION, JAW PAIN AND IT LOOKED HORRIBLE YOU'RE AGING WHEN YOU'RE BENDING BOARD

YOU'VE SEEN I'M SURE PEOPLE WITH THAT HUMP EMPTY IN THE BACK THAT'S YOUR C 7 VERTEBRAE MORE YOUR HEAD GOES FORWARD, MORE THAT C 7 STICKS OUT THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU CAN REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF TECH NECK WE CAN PREVENT ANY FUTURE PROBLEMS

Kelly: HOW DO YOU FICTION — FIX IT FOUR TIPS FIRST TIP IS BE MORE AWARE OF YOUR POSTURE YOUR EARS SHOULD BE OVER SHOULDER SECOND TIP IS BRING THE SCREEN TO EYE LEVEL OR LOOK DOWN WITH HEAD

THIRD TIP IS YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS EVERY 20 TO 30 MINUTES, SET YOUR ALARM ON THE PHONE AND TAKE SOME BREAKS FOURTH ONE IS WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING REEDUCATION OF YOUR POSTURE MUSCLE WITH EXERCISE I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME EXERCISES USE THE FOAM ROLL

THIS IS A HALF FOAM ROLL AND ALL YOU NEED IS A FOLDED TOWEL PLACE THIS ON YOUR C 7 VERTEBRAE LIE ON YOUR BACK HEAD IS HERE, OKOLE HERE

KNEES BENT Kelly: LAY STRAIGHT ON IT MORE AND I'M GOING TO PLACE THAT WASH CLOTH WHERE THAT LITTLE C 7, MOST PROMINENT VERTEBRAE IN YOUR NECK AND LIE BACK

SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO HIT WITH THEIR HEAD — THEY MIGHT HAVE A SPACE BECAUSE THEY'RE REALLY FORWARD YOU CAN PLACE A TALL BACK HERE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO IS JUST FIRST RELAX YOUR SHOULDERS YOU CAN FEEL BECAUSE YOU'RE ELEVATED YOU'RE GETTING A GOOD STRETCH WE'RE GOING TO START STRENGTHENING BACK HERE

PUSH YOUR CHIN BACK DO BACK INTO THE FOAM ROLL TO A CHIN TUCK Kelly: GIVE MYSELF A NICE DOUBLE CHIN WHAT'S UP? HOLD THAT FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS

WHAT THE TOWEL DOES, IT PROVIDES A COUNTER FORCE INTO THE C 7 YOU'RE CORRECTING THAT HUMP Kelly: YEAH WHILE YOU'RE STRENGTHENING YOUR MUSCLES IN THE NECK AND OTHER ONE — THIS IS A GOOD WAY — YOU CAN DO IT IN YOUR CAR SITTING IN THE TRAFFIC

PUT THE TOWEL THERE AND DO IT IN YOUR HEAD REST Kelly: YOU CAN DO IT ON THE GO AND YOU'RE GOING TO DO ANGEL TUCK AND BRING YOUR HANDS ON THE FLOOR

AND YOU'RE GOING TO GO SLOWLY UP AND DOWN WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS FOCUS ON PUSHING YOUR ARMS BACK INTO THE FLOOR I FEEL IT WORK MY BACK MUSCLE YOU'RE STRENGTHENING THE MUSCLES Kelly: GO ALL THE WAY UP? YEAH

AND SLOWLY DOWN YOU'RE GETTING A STRETCH IN THE FRONT STRENGTHENING IN THE BACK IT SAVES TIME Kelly: HOW OFTEN WOULD YOU RECOMMEND DOING THIS? THIS ISES REALLY EASY SO DO IT EVERY DAY
