Tech Neck Recovery
Tech Neck Recovery
Technology has advanced so much in the past decade, for many of us, it’s crazy to imagine a time before the internet or cell phones. While they have become essential to our lives, we don’t seem to realize the strain that checking our Facebook and Instagram feeds or texting has done to our bodies, especially our necks. ‘Tech neck’ has been dubbed one of the biggest causes for headaches, eye and temple pain and neck pain in many computer and cell phone users. The amount of strain put on your neck from the weight of your head leaning down and forward while you check a text has been registered at 50-60 pounds of pressure! After 4-5 hours of cell phone use a day, your body really does take a toll. And the solution is simple: It all starts with being mindful and aware of your posture so that you realize when you’re falling into this habit. Whenever you feel yourself getting stuck in the hunch, it’s time to take a break from whatever you’re doing, breathe, go on a short walk, and stretch out.
Muscle Stretches + Organic Muscle Rub + Foam Rolling = Amazing Tech Neck Relief
For basic Tech Neck begin with simple Neck Muscle Stretches: Stand tall with your feet hip distance apart, arms to your sides. Reach both hands behind your backside and grab your left wrist with your right hand and pull it gently. Increase the stretch by tilting your head to the right. Hold 20 to 30 seconds and switch hands and proceed in the other direction.
For more severe Tech Neck, try B.Witching Organic Muscle Rub: Apply a small amount to your hands and rub into your hunched neck, sore shoulders and back muscles. Relief is instant. This award-winning skin conditioning and stimulating gel is infused with essential oils, peppermint oil, black pepper oil, eucalyptus and menthol oil. Formulated to relive achy tired tight muscles - it will feel both hot and cold at the same time. Keep a jar in your desk for quick application and the refreshing aroma will keep you invigorated for hours.
For the “beyond stressed-out” Tech Neck systems, try adding some Foam Rolling massage: Lean against a wall with a foam roller positioned at your lower back, resting your hands behind you for balance. Tighten your abs and slowly bend your knees to move the roller up your back, just below your shoulder blades. Bend and straighten your knees, while keeping your back pressed against the wall, rolling the foam roller up and down your back.
