Are You Suffering From iPad Neck?

In case you are suffering from consistent neck pain and you coincidentally use an iPad, there might be a correlation that you are not aware of.

Such a pain is common among people using an iPad kept in the lap, and sitting in a slouching or bending posture. The study also showed that this condition is twice more common in women than in men.
