Posture and hand held devices in school age children.

We are observing a upsurge in the rate of serious postural problems in young spines. This is most likely due to the combination of excessive use of hand held devices at a young age and lack of postural awareness.

The type of posture, titled Upper Crossed Syndrome was relatively rare until recently. We believe that the forward carriage of the head that is often seen in those using mobile devices trains the posture, over time, to become distorted.
