“As smartphone and tablet use increases, so does posture breakdown. Sitting is a bent posture literally folding the torso over the pelvis. Texting locks the hands together, causing shoulders to roll inward. This combination means chronically tight back, neck and chest muscles. Plus, as we get older, gravity combines with muscle imbalances to make people feel and look older than they really are,” says Dr. Steven Weiniger, BodyZone founder and posture expert.PostureMonth.org
