Nová štúdia vedcov z kanadskej Yorkskej univerzity zistila, že mileniáli musia viac pracovať, aby sa vyhli obezite

Ak ste sa narodili v 80. alebo na začiatku 90. rokov, je veľká šanca, že ste zápasili s chudnutím.

Zlá správa pre mileniálov: z hľadiska počtu môžete byť momentálne najväčšou generáciou nažive, ale ste tiež skupina, ktorá s chudnutím zápasí najviac. Nový výskum z Yorku Univerzitná štúdia publikovaná v Obesity Research and Clinical Research naznačuje, že mileniáli (re: ľudia narodení v 80. alebo na začiatku 90. rokov) musia na udržanie zdravého BMI viac cvičiť a jesť menej ako predchádzajúce generácie.

Vedci porovnávali diétny príjem, fyzickú aktivitu a BMI v rôznych vekových skupinách. Zistili, že keď jedia rovnaké množstvo jedla, 20-roční v dnešnej dobe priberajú na hmotnosti ľahšie ako ich rovesníci pred 35 rokmi. Priemerný BMI mladého človeka bol v roku 2008 o 10 percent vyšší ako v roku 1971. Vedci neobviňujú iba z prejedania sa; poukazujú aj na environmentálne faktory.

„Je to preto, že manažment hmotnosti je v skutočnosti oveľa komplexnejší než len„ energia v “versus„ energia von “,“ hovorí Jennifer Kuk, profesorka Školy kineziológie a zdravotníctva na York University v Ontariu, v tlačovej správe. „Je to podobné, ako keď hovoríte, že zostatok na vašom investičnom účte je jednoducho o vašich vkladoch, ktoré odpočítavajú vaše výbery, a nezohľadňujú všetky ostatné veci, ktoré ovplyvňujú váš zostatok, ako sú výkyvy na akciovom trhu, bankové poplatky alebo výmenné kurzy mien.“

29-ročný Charles Youn trpel bolesťami hornej časti chrbta a krčnej chrbtice, ktoré ho nútili pokrčiť ramenami a nútil ho mnohokrát sa prebúdzať každú noc. Bolesti a neustála únava pila príliš veľa kávy, aby bojovala s lenivosťou.

"Naučil som sa s tým žiť," hovorí Youn, ktorý pracuje vo vývoji pre neziskovú organizáciu Outward Bound a žije na Upper East Side. "Moja horná časť chrbta a krk by boli také tesné." Môj krk bol vždy ohnutý dopredu a len som si myslel, že to tak bude. “

‘Vidíme to u mladších a mladších detí, pretože dostávajú svoje telefóny v mladšom veku. ’

- Dr. Brian Wallace, chiropraktik

Minulú jeseň sa Youn poradil s chiropraktikom Dr. Christianom Kangom, ktorý má prax v okrese Flatiron, a vysvetlil, že Youn držal svoj problém v dlaniach: Bolesť mu spôsoboval notebook a iPhone.

Youn trpí „technickým krkom“ alebo syndrómom hlavy vpred, bolestivým, stále bežnejším stavom spôsobeným pádom po prístrojoch niekoľko hodín denne, ktorý spôsobuje, že krk stráca svoju prirodzenú krivku - a spôsobuje fyziologickú nerovnováhu v hornej časti tela. Predtým to bolo možné vidieť u stolných džokejov a zubárov v strednom veku alebo u zubárov, ktorí hrbili nad pacientmi, ale teraz sa to prejavuje v mladších generáciách, ktoré vyrastali so smartfónmi, tabletmi a inými osobnými zariadeniami.

"Teraz majú 20-roční mladí ľudia zdravie chrbtice ako 30 alebo 40-roční." Je to epidémia, “hovorí Kang.

Doktor Brian Wallace, chiropraktik so sídlom v Bernardsville, New Jersey, hovorí, že je svedkom tej istej veci vo svojej praxi. "Vidíme to u mladších a mladších detí, pretože dostávajú svoje telefóny v mladšom veku," hovorí. "Je to jedna z najbežnejších vecí, ktoré vidíme." Podľa štúdie výskumnej firmy Influence Central z roku 2016 je priemerný vek, v ktorom americké dieťa dostane svoj prvý smartfón, 10,3 roka.

Zelená čiara predstavuje ideálnu prirodzenú krivku chrbtice, hovorí chiropraktik Christian Kang. S láskavým dovolením Kang Corrective Chiropractic

Keď sa držanie tela zhoršuje, svaly hornej časti chrbta sa natiahnu, zatiaľ čo svaly na prednej časti tela ochabnú a krk sa plazí dopredu, vďaka čomu sa hlava bude cítiť najmenej o 10 kíl ťažšia, ako je. Wallace hovorí, že to nielen spôsobuje štrukturálne problémy v oblasti krku a chrbta, ale môže to tiež spôsobiť problémy s dýchaním a panikou.

"Keď máte to držanie tela vpred, má to zásadný vplyv na dýchanie." Z detí sa stalo plytké dýchanie, ktoré potom ovplyvňuje úroveň úzkosti, pretože váš nervový systém nemôže správne fungovať, “hovorí Wallace a dodáva, že sa môžu vyvinúť zdravotné problémy, ako je astma a alergie.

Doktor Vito Minervini, chiropraktik so sídlom v Rockaway, New Jersey, hovorí, že mladé ženy sú na tento stav obzvlášť citlivé, pretože majú v hornej časti tela nižšiu hustotu svalov.

"Je to zlé všade, ale chlapci to môžu zvládnuť viac, pretože majú viac svalov," hovorí Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, Houstonská podnikateľka a blogerka, to vie príliš dobre. 27-ročná zakladateľka Bumble Brain Box, služby predplatného boxu zameranej na rozvoj dieťaťa, videla, ako sa jej telo jednoducho rozdáva, pretože jej podnikanie sa pred dvoma rokmi začalo rozbiehať.

"Každý deň som sa doslova pozeral dole na svoj telefón a prenosný počítač." Dva moje kotúče boli herniované, vrazilo to do nervov a potom mi svaly na ramenách poriadne stvrdli, “hovorí Khiljee.

Khiljeeho lekári boli jasní: Nadmerné používanie jej technológie nahrávalo desivému zlyhaniu.

"Je ťažké to vysvetliť, ale môj krk nedokázal udržať váhu mojej hlavy." Nemal som mobilitu. " Zúfalo hľadala riešenia vrátane opustenia pohodlnej postele. "Moja posteľ bola príliš mäkká, takže som spal na zemi niekoľko mesiacov."

Sania Khiljee musela svoju kariéru pozastaviť, aby sa zamerala na svoje zdravie.

Ako tlak a bolesť narastali, urobila mučivé rozhodnutie predať svoje začínajúce podnikanie a zamerať sa na obnovenie svojho zdravia - vrátane týždenných schôdzok s fyzickým terapeutom a akupunkturistom. Stále bloguje a pracuje v marketingu sociálnych médií, ale je pre ňu prioritou správne držanie tela.

"Ešte to nemám úplne za sebou, ale konečne sa zotavujem," hovorí Khiljee, ktorá si uvedomila, že nie je sama, keď o svojom zdravotnom stave informovala na Facebooku.

"Mala som asi 100 komentárov od ľudí, ktorí hovorili, že majú rovnaké problémy," hovorí. "Boli to všetci ľudia v mojom veku."

Mileniáli posadnutí iPhone, ktorí celý deň prechádzajú Instagramom a Snapchatom, však nechcú pripustiť, že ich vzácne elektronické záchranné laná môžu poškodzovať ich zdravie.

Minervini hovorí, že jeho kancelária je otočnými dverami popierania. Pacienti prichádzajú s bolesťou krku a odmietajú tvrdenie, že ide o technologický problém.

"Povedia: 'Neviem, odkiaľ pochádza táto bolesť' a je to úplne smiešne vyhlásenie. Vidíte ich, ako sa skrčia nad telefónmi v čakárni. “

Charles Youn absolvuje sedenie na ťažnom zariadení, ktoré mu pomôže dekomprimovať krčnú chrbticu. Chiropraktik Christian Kang hovorí, že ho často používa u pacientov s technickým krkom 10 až 20 minút dvakrát alebo trikrát týždenne. Brian Zak Brian Zak

Stal sa policajnou pozíciou v kancelárii.

"Prichádzajú pacienti so svojimi deťmi a každé dieťa je v čakárni s nejakým zariadením v mizernom postoji." Stále chodím von a kričím na nich - a nie sú to ani moji pacienti. Nie je to prirodzená poloha a nakoniec si zničíte chrbticu. “

Odstraňovanie škôd je proces, ktorý zahŕňa odstránenie zlých návykov, prestávky v stoji a cvičenia ako joga, valcovanie penou a strečing, ktoré podporujú dobré prenášanie a posilňujú svaly jadra a hornej časti tela. Odborníci tiež odporúčajú pacientom, aby držali mobilné zariadenia lakťami v uhle 180 stupňov, aby bola obrazovka pred ich tvárami.

Minervini hovorí, že včasný zásah je kľúčom k boju s celoživotnými oslabujúcimi zdravotnými problémami.

‘„ Musíte si byť vedomí svojich mizerných návykov a pracovať proti nim. ”

Youn, za prvé, ľutuje všetok čas, ktorý strávil, sklopený cez telefón. Začal vidieť Kanga na spinálne úpravy a cvičenia na boj s jeho zrolovanými ramenami. Po 36 sedeniach sa jeho držanie tela zlepšilo, cíti sa vyšší a došlo k zníženiu bolesti.

Navyše teraz tvrdo spí.

„Prial by som si, aby som o tom mal ako teenager viac vzdelania. Vedieť to všetko by predišlo veľkému stresu ľudí vo veku 20 rokov, “hovorí Youn. "Teraz som sa stal veľvyslancom držania tela."

Doktor Vito Minervini, chiropraktik so sídlom v Rockaway, New Jersey, hovorí, že mladé ženy sú na tento stav obzvlášť citlivé, pretože majú v hornej časti tela nižšiu hustotu svalov.

"Je to zlé všade, ale chlapci to môžu zvládnuť viac, pretože majú viac svalov," hovorí Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, Houstonská podnikateľka a blogerka, to vie príliš dobre. 27-ročná zakladateľka Bumble Brain Box, služby predplatného boxu zameranej na rozvoj dieťaťa, videla, ako sa jej telo jednoducho rozdáva, pretože jej podnikanie sa pred dvoma rokmi začalo rozbiehať.

"Každý deň som sa doslova pozeral dole na svoj telefón a prenosný počítač." Dva moje kotúče boli herniované, vrazilo to do nervov a potom mi svaly na ramenách poriadne stvrdli, “hovorí Khiljee.

Khiljeeho lekári boli jasní: Nadmerné používanie jej technológie nahrávalo desivému zlyhaniu.

"Je ťažké to vysvetliť, ale môj krk nedokázal udržať váhu mojej hlavy." Nemal som mobilitu. " Zúfalo hľadala riešenia, vrátane opustenia pohodlnej postele. "Moja posteľ bola príliš mäkká, takže som spal na zemi niekoľko mesiacov."

Sania Khiljee musela svoju kariéru pozastaviť, aby sa zamerala na svoje zdravie.

Ako tlak a bolesť narastali, urobila mučivé rozhodnutie predať svoje začínajúce podnikanie a zamerať sa na obnovenie svojho zdravia - vrátane týždenných schôdzok s fyzickým terapeutom a akupunkturistom. Stále bloguje a pracuje v oblasti marketingu na sociálnych sieťach, ale je pre ňu prioritou správne držanie tela.

"Ešte to nemám úplne za sebou, ale konečne sa zotavujem," hovorí Khiljee, ktorá si uvedomila, že nie je sama, keď o svojom zdravotnom stave informovala na Facebooku.

"Mala som asi 100 komentárov od ľudí, ktorí hovorili, že majú rovnaké problémy," hovorí. "Boli to všetci ľudia v mojom veku."

Mileniáli posadnutí iPhone, ktorí celý deň prechádzajú Instagramom a Snapchatom, však nechcú pripustiť, že ich vzácne elektronické záchranné laná môžu poškodzovať ich zdravie.

Minervini hovorí, že jeho kancelária je otočnými dverami popierania. Pacienti prichádzajú s bolesťou krku a odmietajú tvrdenie, že ide o technologický problém.

"Povedia: 'Neviem, odkiaľ pochádza táto bolesť' a je to úplne smiešne vyhlásenie. Vidíte ich, ako sa skrčia nad telefónmi v čakárni. “

Charles Youn absolvuje sedenie na ťažnom zariadení, ktoré mu pomôže dekomprimovať krčnú chrbticu. Chiropraktik Christian Kang hovorí, že ho často používa u pacientov s technickým krkom 10 až 20 minút dvakrát alebo trikrát týždenne. Brian Zak Brian Zak

Stal sa policajnou pozíciou v kancelárii.

"Prichádzajú pacienti so svojimi deťmi a každé dieťa je v čakárni s nejakým zariadením v mizernom postoji." Stále chodím von a kričím na nich - a nie sú to ani moji pacienti. Nie je to prirodzená poloha a nakoniec si zničíte chrbticu. “

Odstraňovanie škôd je proces, ktorý zahŕňa odstraňovanie zlých návykov, prestávky v stoji a cvičenia ako joga, valcovanie penou a strečing, ktoré podporujú dobré prenášanie a posilňujú svaly jadra a hornej časti tela. Odborníci tiež odporúčajú pacientom, aby držali mobilné zariadenia lakťami v uhle 180 stupňov, aby bola obrazovka pred ich tvárami.

Minervini hovorí, že včasný zásah je kľúčom k boju s celoživotnými oslabujúcimi zdravotnými problémami.

‘„ Musíte si byť vedomí svojich mizerných návykov a pracovať proti nim. ”

Youn, po prvé, ľutuje všetok čas, ktorý strávil, skĺznutý cez telefón. Začal vidieť Kanga na spinálne úpravy a cvičenia na boj s jeho zrolovanými ramenami. Po 36 sedeniach sa jeho držanie tela zlepšilo, cíti sa vyšší a došlo k zníženiu bolesti.

Navyše teraz tvrdo spí.

„Prial by som si, aby som o tom mal ako teenager viac vzdelania. Vedieť to všetko by predišlo veľkému stresu ľudí vo veku 20 rokov, “hovorí Youn. "Teraz som sa stal veľvyslancom držania tela."


Technológia robí z mileniálov generáciu hrbáčov

29-ročný Charles Youn trpel bolesťami hornej časti chrbta a krčnej chrbtice, ktoré ho nútili pokrčiť ramenami a nútil ho niekoľkokrát sa prebúdzať každú noc. Bolesti a neustála únava pila príliš veľa kávy, aby bojovala s lenivosťou.

"Naučil som sa s tým žiť," hovorí Youn, ktorý pracuje vo vývoji pre neziskovú organizáciu Outward Bound a žije na Upper East Side. "Moja horná časť chrbta a krk by boli také tesné." Môj krk bol vždy ohnutý dopredu a len som si myslel, že to tak bude. “

‘Vidíme to u mladších a mladších detí, pretože dostávajú svoje telefóny v mladšom veku. ’

- Dr. Brian Wallace, chiropraktik

Minulú jeseň sa Youn poradil s chiropraktikom Dr. Christianom Kangom, ktorý má prax v okrese Flatiron, a vysvetlil, že Youn držal svoj problém v dlaniach: Bolesť mu spôsoboval notebook a iPhone.

Youn trpí „technickým krkom“ alebo syndrómom hlavy dopredu, bolestivým, stále bežnejším stavom spôsobeným pádom po prístrojoch niekoľko hodín denne, ktorý spôsobuje, že krk stráca svoju prirodzenú krivku - a spôsobuje fyziologickú nerovnováhu v hornej časti tela. Predtým to bolo možné vidieť u stolných džokejov a zubárov v strednom veku alebo u zubárov, ktorí hrbili nad pacientmi, ale teraz sa to prejavuje v mladších generáciách, ktoré vyrastali so smartfónmi, tabletmi a inými osobnými zariadeniami.

"Teraz majú 20-roční mladí ľudia zdravie chrbtice ako 30 alebo 40-roční." Je to epidémia, “hovorí Kang.

Doktor Brian Wallace, chiropraktik so sídlom v Bernardsville, New Jersey, hovorí, že je svedkom tej istej veci vo svojej praxi. "Vidíme to u mladších a mladších detí, pretože dostávajú svoje telefóny v mladšom veku," hovorí. “It’s one of the most common things we see.” According to a 2016 study by the research firm Influence Central, the average age at which an American child gets their first smartphone is 10.3 years.

As posture worsens, the upper back muscles stretch out, while the muscles in the front of the body become weaker and the neck creeps forward, which can make the head feel at least 10 pounds heavier than it is. Not only does it cause structural problems in the neck and back, Wallace says it can also spark breathing and panic issues.

“When you have that forward-rolled posture, it has a profound impact on the breathing. Children have become shallow breathers, which then affects anxiety levels because your nervous system can’t function properly,” says Wallace, adding that medical issues such as asthma and allergies can develop.

Dr. Vito Minervini, a chiropractor based in Rockaway, NJ, says young women are particularly susceptible to the condition because they have lower muscle density in their upper body area.

“It’s bad all around, but guys can take it more because they have more musculature,” says Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, a Houston-based entrepreneur and blogger, knows this all too well. The 27-year-old founder of Bumble Brain Box, a subscription box service focused on child development, saw her body simply give out as her business began to take off two years ago.

“I was literally looking down at my phone and laptop for hours every single day. Two of my discs got herniated and it pushed into nerves and then the muscles in my shoulders got really hard,” says Khiljee.

Khiljee’s doctors were explicit: Her tech overuse was fueling the frightening breakdown.

“It’s hard to explain, but my neck couldn’t support the weight of my head. I had no mobility.” She desperately sought solutions, including forsaking a comfortable bed. “My bed was too soft, so I slept on the floor for months.”

Sania Khiljee had to put her career on hold to focus on her health.

As the pressure and pain mounted, she made an agonizing decision to sell her fledgling business and focus on regaining her health — including weekly appointments with a physical therapist and an acupuncturist. She is still blogging and works in social-media marketing, but she’s made good posture her priority.

“I’m not fully over it yet, but I’m finally recovering,” says Khiljee, who realized she wasn’t alone when she posted about her health woes on Facebook.

“I had about 100 comments of people saying they had the same issues,” she says. “It was all people my age.”

But iPhone-obsessed millennials poring over Instagram and Snapchat all day don’t want to admit that their precious electronic lifelines might be detrimental to their health.

Minervini says his office is a revolving door of denial. Patients come in for neck pain and balk at the suggestion that it’s a technology issue.

“They’ll say, ‘I don’t know where this pain is coming from,’ and it’s a completely ridiculous statement. You [see] them hunched over their phones in the waiting room.”

He’s become the office posture police.

“I have patients coming in with their kids and every kid is out in the waiting room with some sort of device in a crappy posture. I go out and yell at them all the time — and they aren’t even my patients. It’s not a natural position and you’ll destroy your spine, eventually.”

Undoing the damage is a process that includes breaking bad habits, taking standing breaks and doing exercises such as yoga, foam rolling and stretches that promote good carriage and strengthen core and upper body muscles. Experts also advise patients to hold mobile devices with their elbows at 180 degrees so the screen is in front of their faces.

Minervini says early intervention is key to combating a lifetime of debilitating health issues.

‘“You have to be cognizant of your crappy habits and work against them.”

Youn, for one, regrets all the time he spent slumped over his phone. He began seeing Kang for spinal adjustments and exercises to combat his rolled shoulders. After 36 sessions, his posture has improved, he feels taller and there’s been a reduction in pain.

Plus he’s now sleeping soundly.

“I wish I had more education on this as a teen. Knowing all this would prevent a lot of stress for people in their 20s,” says Youn. “I’ve become a posture ambassador now.”


Tech is turning millennials into a generation of hunchbacks

For years, Charles Youn, 29, suffered from upper-back pain and neck soreness that made him hunch his shoulders and caused him to wake up numerous times throughout every night. He was in pain and constantly fatigued, drinking too much coffee to combat the sluggishness.

“I learned to live with it,” says Youn, who works in development for leadership nonprofit Outward Bound and lives on the Upper East Side. “My upper back and neck would be so tight. My neck was always bent forward, and I just thought that’s how it was going to be.”

‘We’re seeing it in younger and younger children because they’re getting their phones at a younger age.’

- Dr. Brian Wallace, chiropractor

This past fall, Youn consulted with chiropractor Dr. Christian Kang, who has a practice in the Flatiron District and explained that Youn was holding his problem in the palms of his hands: His laptop and iPhone were causing his pain.

Youn suffers from “tech neck,” or forward head syndrome, a painful, increasingly common condition caused by slumping over devices for hours a day that leads the neck to lose its natural curve — and triggers a physiological imbalance in the upper body. Previously seen in middle-age or older desk jockeys and dentists who hunch over patients, it’s now materializing in younger generations who grew up with smartphones, tablets and other personal devices.

“Now, 20-year-olds have the spine health of a 30- or 40-year-old. It’s an epidemic,” says Kang.

As posture worsens, the upper back muscles stretch out, while the muscles in the front of the body become weaker and the neck creeps forward, which can make the head feel at least 10 pounds heavier than it is. Not only does it cause structural problems in the neck and back, Wallace says it can also spark breathing and panic issues.

“When you have that forward-rolled posture, it has a profound impact on the breathing. Children have become shallow breathers, which then affects anxiety levels because your nervous system can’t function properly,” says Wallace, adding that medical issues such as asthma and allergies can develop.

Dr. Vito Minervini, a chiropractor based in Rockaway, NJ, says young women are particularly susceptible to the condition because they have lower muscle density in their upper body area.

“It’s bad all around, but guys can take it more because they have more musculature,” says Minervini.

Sania Khiljee, a Houston-based entrepreneur and blogger, knows this all too well. The 27-year-old founder of Bumble Brain Box, a subscription box service focused on child development, saw her body simply give out as her business began to take off two years ago.

“I was literally looking down at my phone and laptop for hours every single day. Two of my discs got herniated and it pushed into nerves and then the muscles in my shoulders got really hard,” says Khiljee.

Khiljee’s doctors were explicit: Her tech overuse was fueling the frightening breakdown.

“It’s hard to explain, but my neck couldn’t support the weight of my head. I had no mobility.” She desperately sought solutions, including forsaking a comfortable bed. “My bed was too soft, so I slept on the floor for months.”

Sania Khiljee had to put her career on hold to focus on her health.

As the pressure and pain mounted, she made an agonizing decision to sell her fledgling business and focus on regaining her health — including weekly appointments with a physical therapist and an acupuncturist. She is still blogging and works in social-media marketing, but she’s made good posture her priority.

“I’m not fully over it yet, but I’m finally recovering,” says Khiljee, who realized she wasn’t alone when she posted about her health woes on Facebook.

“I had about 100 comments of people saying they had the same issues,” she says. “It was all people my age.”

But iPhone-obsessed millennials poring over Instagram and Snapchat all day don’t want to admit that their precious electronic lifelines might be detrimental to their health.

Minervini says his office is a revolving door of denial. Patients come in for neck pain and balk at the suggestion that it’s a technology issue.

“They’ll say, ‘I don’t know where this pain is coming from,’ and it’s a completely ridiculous statement. You [see] them hunched over their phones in the waiting room.”

He’s become the office posture police.

“I have patients coming in with their kids and every kid is out in the waiting room with some sort of device in a crappy posture. I go out and yell at them all the time — and they aren’t even my patients. It’s not a natural position and you’ll destroy your spine, eventually.”

Undoing the damage is a process that includes breaking bad habits, taking standing breaks and doing exercises such as yoga, foam rolling and stretches that promote good carriage and strengthen core and upper body muscles. Experts also advise patients to hold mobile devices with their elbows at 180 degrees so the screen is in front of their faces.

Minervini says early intervention is key to combating a lifetime of debilitating health issues.

‘“You have to be cognizant of your crappy habits and work against them.”

Youn, for one, regrets all the time he spent slumped over his phone. He began seeing Kang for spinal adjustments and exercises to combat his rolled shoulders. After 36 sessions, his posture has improved, he feels taller and there’s been a reduction in pain.

Plus he’s now sleeping soundly.

“I wish I had more education on this as a teen. Knowing all this would prevent a lot of stress for people in their 20s,” says Youn. “I’ve become a posture ambassador now.”


Tech is turning millennials into a generation of hunchbacks

For years, Charles Youn, 29, suffered from upper-back pain and neck soreness that made him hunch his shoulders and caused him to wake up numerous times throughout every night. He was in pain and constantly fatigued, drinking too much coffee to combat the sluggishness.

“I learned to live with it,” says Youn, who works in development for leadership nonprofit Outward Bound and lives on the Upper East Side. “My upper back and neck would be so tight. My neck was always bent forward, and I just thought that’s how it was going to be.”

‘We’re seeing it in younger and younger children because they’re getting their phones at a younger age.’

This past fall, Youn consulted with chiropractor Dr. Christian Kang, who has a practice in the Flatiron District and explained that Youn was holding his problem in the palms of his hands: His laptop and iPhone were causing his pain.

Youn suffers from “tech neck,” or forward head syndrome, a painful, increasingly common condition caused by slumping over devices for hours a day that leads the neck to lose its natural curve — and triggers a physiological imbalance in the upper body. Previously seen in middle-age or older desk jockeys and dentists who hunch over patients, it’s now materializing in younger generations who grew up with smartphones, tablets and other personal devices.

“Now, 20-year-olds have the spine health of a 30- or 40-year-old. It’s an epidemic,” says Kang.
