Electronic Gadget Addiction Leaving Half of Under-30s With Back Aches, Neck Strains

A recent survey led by the British Chiropractic Association has revealed that nowadays half of under-30s suffer from backaches as they spend hours slouching over gadgets.

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.
