Recently, the topic of “tilting the head to play the cell phone can prevent whiplash” has been on the hot search, triggering the attention of netizens. According to some people, most people who tilt their heads to play cell phones do not suffer from cervical spondylosis because the action of tilting the head can make the joints between the cervical vertebrae stretch and stretch, which can reduce the burden on the cervical vertebrae and help prevent cervical spondylosis.

There are also people who are skeptical

Worry about their own cervical vertebrae

“will not be able to cope with a long period of leaning back.”

Netizen “KK” is a short video blogger, because of work, she has to use the phone from morning to night, sometimes a busy, to deal with the phone for several hours, shoulder and neck stiffness, dizziness, and sometimes nausea and want to vomit. She inadvertently brushed to the “back tilt to brush the phone” topic, she also moved to try, at home at night with her back against the sofa, the whole head back, the phone lifted over the top of the head to look up. A week later, her cervical spine difficult problem did not ease, but instead the neck leaning forward on both sides of the muscle soreness.

The cervical spine is very easy to be injured, because it has the greatest mobility, and the pressure it bears is also very great, and it is more likely to be strained. Especially “low head”, long time low head brush cell phone, work, etc., so that the cervical spine in the long-term high-intensity load, it is easy to appear cervical vertebrae physiological curvature stiffness, or even “reverse arch”, accelerate the cervical spine degenerative lesions.
