Enjoy Your Hobbies Without Back and Neck Pain


Did you know the human head weighs 10-12 lbs? When you lean your head forward the weight increases incrementally, to 27 pounds at a 15-degree angle up to 60 pounds at a 60 degree angle. That's heavy!


The September/October study published in Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research & Reviews noted that during COVID19 people are home more, spending more time on their computers and phones, reading the news, and yes, doomscrolling. The study notes sveral problems associated with this increased use, including neck pain.


Some people have taken up hobbies during this time such as jewelry making, acrylic painting, guitar playing, and more. This can all lead to increased neck pain.
