Dr Brad here again and today we are going to talk about kids posture.
According to our research at the American Posture Institute, 34% of school-aged children
and 67% of students (high school, college, etc.) have forward head posture
or tech neck.
And one of the biggest contributors to this are hand-held devices or cell phones.
Everywhere you look, whether they are sitting, standing and even walking, kids are always
looking down at their devices.
And tech neck will eventually lead to unsightly humping of the upper back and a whole bunch
of other health problems.
So parents, I am going to explain to you how to teach your kids to use their devices in a better,
safer and healthier way.
First of all, when texting always keep the chin up. Hold the phone in front of you so eyes are
forwards and looking straight ahead.
And when arms get tired, put the phone down for a minute to rest them. We all know that a
simple text ‘hello’ can turn into a 3 hour texting marathon.
