More and more studies are demonstrating that many of our young people are in danger of becoming hunchback due to the constant looking down on their gadgets (i.e. smartphones, tablets, video games, etc.). * Even your child’s mood can be affected because of the constant looking down at media devices. **
With today’s sedentary lifestyle, our children are spending longer hours sitting at desks doing schoolwork, working on computers, and carrying heavy school bags to an extent, these factors are creating a generation of hunchbacks (technically called, ‘kyphosis’). When kyphosis is initiated by poor posture, this may contribute to trapped nerves thus causing pain, breathing difficulties, headaches, depression, neck problems, and arthritis. Frequently, these symptoms can continue well into adulthood.
