Do You Have "iPad Neck"?

If you’re a woman … the answer is probably yes. "iPad neck" -- pain in your neck, upper back or shoulders caused by persistent slouching while using a tablet -- is a growing problem. UNLV researchers found that 85 percent of tablet users have experienced neck pain from slumping over their screens and women were twice as likely as men to suffer from iPad neck. 70 percent of women in the study reported feeling discomfort after using their tablets, compared to 30 percent of men. Why do women suffer more than men? Researchers say that sitting without back support doubles the odds of iPad neck pain -- and women in the study were more likely (77 percent) to use their tablets while sitting on the floor than men (23 percent).
