"Tech Neck" and Other Office Work Maladies

The New York Post examines the health perils of office work, including "tech neck," repetitive strain injuries, and back pain.

Interestingly, a New York massage therapist has instituted a specific "tech neck" technique to combat some of these injuries (along with a "Blackberry thumb" massage mentioned later in the article):

Dorit Baxter introduced the "tech neck" massage at her New York Day Spa several months ago, after more and more clients were complaining of neck, shoulder and back pain from hours of sitting at a desk. Since then, the phone has been ringing off the hook with requests for the treatment, which includes a series of stretches for the neck, spinal cord, back and pectoral muscles, followed by a deep-tissue massage.
