The survey observed that the decreasing size of electronic gadgets results in people leaning over the screen rather than using a desk, and due to this they suffer from pain in their backs and necks, the Daily Star reported.

The survey also suggested that people who didn't had a work station of their own in their offices experienced neck strain as they sat on chair set for others and used monitors at a set height.

People tend to put their neck and shock-absorbing discs under strain due to their lazy lifestyle and on average they spend almost 3 hours in front of the TV each evening, bringing the total time spent sitting to 10 hours a day.

Tim Hutchful, from British Chiropractic Association said that the number people having back aches and neck-related pains is increasing as the modern lifestyle forces one to stay seated, but it's important to take breaks and relieve the build-up tension.
