Do you sit all day in front of a computer or drive all day?
Those activities can create back, neck, hip and shoulder issues.
Are you constantly on a cell phone, tablet, or media device?
The posture irregularities it takes to hold gadgets for prolonged periods of time can create neck strain, thumb/wrist/elbow pain.
