Various musculoskeletal system disorders occur as a result of the use of computers, which have become an integral part of modern life. The most important among such disorders is known as cumulative trauma disorder presented in different forms. One of these forms recently very common devastating condition is neck tension syndrome. With increased advance in using computer the adolescent starts to complain of problems if passed undiagnosed will lead to serious chronic illnesses. No one think that… 

Prevalence of Forward Head Posture in Electronic Gamers and Associated Factors

The results suggest that individual who spend longer hours on their electronic gaming devices have a high risk of developing forward head posture due to the static loading that acts on the cervical spine.

An ergonomic questionnaire survey on the use of computers in schools.

The results show that most schools are slow to develop instructive programs from the environmental or ergonomic point of view, and now there is an urgent need for specific guidelines to protect young students.

Adolescent flexibility, endurance strength, and physical activity as predictors of adult tension neck, low back pain, and knee injury: a 25 year follow up study

Overall good flexibility in boys and good endurance strength in girls may contribute to a decreased risk of tension neck and high Endurance strength in boys may indicate an increased risk of knee injury.

Effects of neck flexion and mouth opening on inspiratory flow dynamics in awake humans.

It is concluded that the position of the neck has a discernible impact on the flow behavior through the nonphasically active UA faced with a negative Pd.

Influences of head positions and bite opening on collapsibility of the passive pharynx.

The results indicate the importance of neck and mandibular position for determining patency and collapsibility of the passive pharynx.

Influence of neck muscles on mouth pressure response to cervical magnetic stimulation.

It is concluded that inspiratory neck muscle hypertrophy can significantly influence the Pm response to CMS, and should be taken into account when using the CMS-Pm combination in patients with possible chronic diaphragm dysfunction.

Mechanoreceptor endings of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.

This work focused primarily on the articular tissues of the peripheral joints, but recent studies show that the same considerations pertain in the spine and may play an important role in determining mechanical and functional stability, susceptibility to degenerative disease, function of protec-related tissues.

Assessment of upper airway stabilizing forces with the use of phrenic nerve stimulation in conscious humans.

UA dynamics are significantly influenced by the inspiratory/expiratory timing at which PNS is applied, the improvement in UA dynamic properties observed from expiratory to inspiratory PNS characterizes the overall inspiratory stabilizing effects, and mouth aperture alters the stability of UA structures during inspiration.

Tracheal and neck position influence upper airway airflow dynamics by altering airway length.

It is concluded that alterations in airflow mechanics with caudal tracheal displacement and changes in neck positions are primarily due to alterations in airway length.

Anatomy : development, function, clinical correlations

This chapter discusses Evolutionary and Developmental Origins of the Head and Neck and The Cranial Nerves, as well as integrating structure and Function in the Back and Introduction to the Trunk and the Back.

The results indicate that the parasternal intercostals in the dog are real agonists and actively contribute to expand the rib cage and the lung during quiet inspiration, the relationship between lung volume and parasternal length is not unique but depends on the relative contribution of the various inspiratory muscles to tidal volume.
