It’s no secret that our contemporary work and life style has us immobile and seated much of the time. Academics and employees can suffer from neck and back pain from sitting and using computers. Neck pain isn’t just from cramped muscles though. It is caused by pressure on the spine from holding your head up. Researchers determined that your head, held at different angles, creates more weight on your neck. It can reach up to 60 pounds at a sharp downward turn, causing spine strains.
