Family using electronic tablet at homeIf used improperly, a tablet can cause muscle strain in your neck and shoulders.

The biggest culprit is keeping your tablet on your lap, which forces you to look down for long periods of time, thus painfully pulling on neck muscles.

To thwart pain management issues, change positions often, rest tablets on a table or counter, or put tablets in a case that can stand up on its own, since holding devices puts pressure on hands and forearms.
