Mobile Phones: A Real Pain in Your Neck!

Research shows an average person in India scrolls through 300 feet of mobile content every day, or 1,09,500 feet, in a year. This is almost like climbing Mt. Everest three times a year. The only difference however, is that when you climb the mountain, you perhaps become a lot fitter, but while scrolling through 300 feet of content on your phone, you could just be prepping your body for a physical disaster to start off your neck.

Here are the five things you can do to manage the neck pain caused by strain on the neck while constant scrolling:

1. Scroll only when it is a must

Reduce the time you spend on your phone. Use various resources on your smartphone to remind you of your time on the phone and try to reduce it over time. Smaller changes daily will lead to bigger results.

2. The neck needs to stretch

The neck needs to stretch

Multiple neck exercises help stretch and loosen the neck, shoulders and upper back muscles. Practice neck rolls, bends, rotations & retractions on a daily basis. This also helps in increasing blood circulation in your neck area. If done on a daily basis, you will feel the heaviness reducing in your neck.

3. The neck on your shoulders

The neck on your shoulders

This has a completely different meaning in this context. Continuous scrolling on your phone affects your shoulders which often become a source of pain, so exercise is important to keep them loose. Practice shoulder rolls to control this, stand straight or sit straight with your shoulders relaxed and slowly roll them forward & backwards in a circular motion. Do 10 reps in each direction.

4. Choose simple ways to keep your body active

Walking, cycling, swimming, and yoga are all excellent options for releasing tension in the neck muscles. Make sure you don’t push yourself too hard – you should be able to talk while doing the exercise without feeling any discomfort.

5. Choose an effective pain reliever
