Learn How To Be Healthy In The Digital Era
These days, you probably know more people with smartphones than without. Most of us would be lost without them! However, posture is declining at the speed of technology.
For most of us, gone are the days of manual labor jobs. Researchers report 80 percent of jobs are sedentary. Between driving to and from work, sitting at a desk while working, and sitting while eating and relaxing, we can easily spend the majority of our days inactive.
Inactivity is linked to numerous detrimental health conditions, and living in the digital era gives us even more reason to be sedentary. However, there are things we can do to improve how we sit to improve our overall health and wellbeing.
During our time together, we will discuss postural design, how to improve posture while at work, and show you examples of healthy posture, which is why we invite you to attend our next event, Digital Dementia , on Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 pm CDT at HarborChase of Plano.
No More Tech Neck
Are you familiar with tech neck? Modern day workers present tech neck on a regular basis. Not only does this affect posture, it can impact cognitive function as well.
Tech neck refers to a looking down posture commonly seen when looking at a cell phone or other screen with your neck flexed forward. Depending on the angle your head is tilted forward, additional weight is being carried by your neck and shoulders. For example, tilting your head at a 60 degree angle is equivalent to carrying a 60 pound weight on your neck!
Forward head posture is one of the most common causes of neck pain, and worse, can lead to chronic postural distortion patterns. Postural misalignment doesn't just harm the spine.
In addition to neck and back pain, poor posture is associated with:
-foot and wrist pain
Join us for an ergonomic evaluation and posture workshop to improve your postural health to be sure you do not suffer from these health complications yourself!

Identify The Signs of Digital Dementia
Digital dementia presents with very specific symptoms. Modern day workers have different threats to their health than previous generations. One major cause of digital dementia is our sedentary lifestyles. The human body is designed to move. Lack of activity can have a grave impact on the cognitive thought processes.
During our time together, we will discuss the signs of digital dementia and work with you to improve your postural design by teaching you how to set up your workspace in a healthier manner to enhance your performance.
Our goal for Digital Dementia is to improve your physical posture and ergonomic design while at work in order to prevent the ill health effects of tech neck and digital dementia.
