Is using a tablet causing issues with your shoulders?
As technology evolves and we come up with new ways of working, more and more people are utilising tablets and ipads as their main way of using the internet, keeping in touch with others and even typing documents and other work that is necessary for their jobs. This has made it easier for people to work from any location but it has also come with its problems in that over the last couple of years more and more people are complaining of neck and head pain. It is thought that this is linked to the fact that people don’t sit correctly when using these computer types.
