Tablet and smartphone use is being blamed for a back pain epidemic among young people! The majority of people ages 18 to 24 say they’ve suffered from back pain in the last year, causing them to lose more working days annually than their parents’ generation. Unofficially dubbed “iPosture,” the slouching, hunched position you automatically adopt while texting, emailing or playing Candy Crush can cause serious upper back and neck strain. It’s no surprise, considering the average 18-to-24-year-old spends more than eight hours a day in front of one screen or another.
