That is the problem plaguing the modern world. We see everywhere from home, bus stops, parks, jobs, and even street climbing.
What am I talking about?…
“Tech neck” or “Text neck,” is a local term for looking at our phones, tablets, or computers, which causes neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, and pain.
I believe that even here as you read this, you are in that position (head forward, round shoulders, no longer pulled back), but how do we reduce the symptoms, prevent them from happening, and what are the best ways to help?
That’s what I’m writing in this blog. Keep reading, feel good, and leave the tech neck!
If you want to jump straight to the gym and stretch, crawl down.
What Is A Tech Neck?
The tech neck is a reason to hide, wrap your shoulders, and lean your neck forward to work on a computer, look at your phone, or connect with some type of visual aid.
This role is not appropriate for your neck. Raising your head requires the muscles in the back of your neck to align, which is especially difficult when you lean your head forward.
Because your head weighs about 10Lbs, you look very down; it is more likely that the muscles and nerves are stressed so that you can lift your head. This is a technical issue.
The symptoms are:
- Neck pain
- It’s stiff neck
- Twisting of the neck
- Pain between the leaves avoids
For many people, especially those who work at a desk for long periods of time, a professional neck injury occurs unconsciously over time. It is natural to rely on the fabric to think.
Obviously, using your computer or mobile device would not be an option, so how can we avoid or avoid this?…
How to Avoid Modern Technology
The obvious answer is to go back to search-and-collecting systems, but for many people that is not possible.
So what do we do?
The best way to avoid technology is to learn about standing and switching around a lot of the time. One of the best places for your neck when working at a desk is to lean slightly. This allows the muscles in the back of your neck to relax.
Walking around, changing places, and going to different shapes often help to initiate movement in your body, which can help you reduce some of the stress.
This is the main reason I recommend a flexible desk that can help you sit down. I even put a small stool under my desk. Moving is the lifeblood of your joints.
I understand that the neck of technology is not just about working on a computer. Many find themselves looking at their phones for a long time and nowadays. (I blame you for darn media coverage.)
It may seem awkward at first, but try to raise your phone to the heights with your arms. Do this instead of looking down at your phone. This will relieve stress and strain on your neck.
What Not to Do to Avoid a Professional Neck
Some people recommend “adjusting your posture” and “staying upright” as the best way to deal with professional neck and even back pain. But I do not agree.
The human body is a resilient body that learns to adapt to new environments. ALWAYS staying upright will not be an option. Not only is it impossible, but it also forces the movement of your vertebrae spine in a lesser way.
As I said earlier, movement is cosmetic. That’s why it’s important to recognize your mood and move from time to time. Get up, walk a little, stretch your neck, and maybe practice yoga – all of which will help you avoid a professional neck.
How to Remove a Tech Neck?
Getting rid of acne scars is not an immediate solution, but combining knowing your posture, exercising your neck and shoulders, and strengthening your neck muscles can all benefit you.
I cover all the exercises you can use to reduce the professional neck below.
Tech Neck Stretches & Exercises – The Rest That Comes

Yoga Must Get Rid of Professional Neck – Long-Term Solution
A long-term solution to neck technology is to ensure that the muscles in your neck and back are strong enough to withstand fatigue.
Yoga is good for this, because it stimulates new body movements, and strengthens muscles. This helps you to feel less stressed, feel better, and helps to be a long-term solution to the neck of technology.
Here are some of my thoughts to go.
A dog on the ground is an important part of lowering your neck as a slight curve. It is also very important to strengthen your back and shoulders.
- Start in the plank with your shoulders in your hands, between your hips, hips, and little fingers.
- Raise the hips to form a straight line from the shoulders to the heels.
- Raise the hips back and forth to form a pyramid shape with your body. Focus on creating a straight line from the arms to the waist.
- Squeeze your upper thighs and abdominal muscles facing each other.
- I do not flex the biceps slightly forward to open your shoulders and relieve pressure on the neck.
- Squeeze your hands and shoulders with each other to participate in the upper part.
- Relax your neck to look back at your feet.
- Take the heels off the ground so you can stretch the cow.
- Hold the building, and relax as you grow and lift, and exhale as you expand the stretch and increase performance.
The main goal is to establish a healthy movement in your back, especially to stay up all day. The recording is done on the floor, but you can also make a fake, sitting in your chair.
- Start on all four legs with the shoulders on the legs and hips bent. (Small fingers can be closed or closed.)
- The positions standing with the knees are the same as each other, in width and width.
- Make an L-shape with your index fingers and your thumbs.
- Write while shaking your back, pulling your chest forward and raising your tail upwards.
- Promise the front of your torso, and remain the same height in the middle of the spine and upper back.
- Exhale as you roll around your back, pulling on your forehead at your waist.
- Write down in your hands to lift the back up to the ceiling.
- Put your chin on your chest.
- This is a rep. Continue slowly shifting from Cat to Cow, breathing in while growing Cow’s full stretch, and exhaling as you slowly move on the Cat.
- Promise as much breath as you can.
Became a Change:
- Start with your face down.
- Stay straight with the crown of your head up to the ceiling.
- Write while shaking your back, looking up as you pull your chest against the ceiling.
- Keep your back when you go to a small area.
- Exhale as you roll around your back, pulling on your forehead at your waist.
- Label your chin and feel a stretch in your neck.
- This is just one repetition when you push your forward each time.
Son of the Cobra
An amazing representation of how to strengthen your spine and back slightly. She is helpful, effective, and resilient.
- Lie on your stomach, and place your hands on your shoulders and elbows pointing backwards, near your sides.
- Start your fingers and rub the palms under your shoulders.
- Connect and rotate the thighs inwards so that the knees lie down and both fingers touch the floor.
- Squeeze your big toes, feet, knees, and inner thighs against each other.
- Mix at the waist and at the top of the legs at the bottom.
- Write while using your base (not arms) to extend the spine forward and lift your chest down.
- Press the crown of your head away from your shoulders to keep you moving forward.
- Pull the leaves off the floor and struggle with each other, squeeze the elbows sideways, and use your hands to pull (not push) your body forward and up.
- Use this exercise, take in air as you climb a little, and exhale as you expand the relationship and become taller.
