Quite likely! "Phone posture" occurs when you stare at your phone for hours on end... this means your head, shoulders, and upper spine are forward in relation to the rest of your body and causing neck pain. Sitting at a desk job and driving in a car are the traditional causes of this number one postural dysfunction we see at Beyond Physical Therapy but phone use is definitely problematic.
I have designed an online two-class program that will teach you neck exercises to reduce or eliminate neck pain. You can do these exercises from home with just a chair. The first class can be performed up to twice daily. Once your pain is under control, you can advance to the second class where you will gain strength, improve your posture and prevent your neck pain from coming back.
