The world has rapidly transitioned into the digital age, where advanced technology is easily at our disposal and powerful social media platforms play an integral role in society’s daily functioning. Living in a generation where it is normalized to be glued to our cellular devices and screens for several hours on end, may cause us to overlook the plethora of issues that may be developing in the physiology of our bodies. You may be oblivious to the various amounts of damage that your poor posture and sedentary lifestyle are contributing to, from simply overusing your phone or computer. The worsening neck, back, or knee pain that you have constantly overlooked is still present and may cause deterioration, inevitably leading to adverse health outcomes if it continues to be ignored.

These risk factors can be both genetic and environmental.
