SmartPhone use from Dr. Michael Guadagnino, Chiropractor in Ramsey, NJ

Take Breaks from Smartphone Use Every 20 Minutes:
Smartphones have become ubiquitous, and people
seem to be interacting with their electronic devices at every opportunity. In this study, researchers asked participants to sit and
use their smartphones for varying lengths of time while they measured the muscle activity in their neck and shoulders, as well
as whether or not they felt any pain. They found that participants experienced significant fatigue in the muscles the neck and
upper back when they used their phones for more than twenty minutes. Additionally, the longer participants used their phone,
the greater their risk for developing neck and/or shoulder pain. The researchers conclude it would be appropriate to recommend
taking a break every twenty minutes to allow the muscles in the neck and shoulders to relax before resuming smartphone use.
