Application of real-time postural device for neck pain

What are the immediate effects on spinal posture, muscle activity and pain?

Neck pain is common in those who hold a prolonged and static posture behind a computer for work.

Although the causes of neck pain are thought to be multifactorial, prolonged sitting with forwarding head and hyper-kyphotic posture receive much attention as they are thought to increase mechanical loading through the joints and the muscles of the neck.

This study sought to find out whether the application of a wearable posture sensor could modify the spinal posture, muscle activity and perceived pain severity in adults with neck pain.
