But the posture adopted by users could put them at risk of chronic neck and shoulder pain. When using tablets, user’s neck was bent more compared to when using a desktop or laptop computer, especially when the tablet was placed on the lap. Understandably, such a position is going to cause extra strain on neck and shoulder muscles. The damage caused could take a long time to heal, with the risk to young children particularly disturbing. In China, more young kids are getting neck issues for using the iPad. A seven-year-old boy got cervical pain and serious headache after spending too much time for playing his iPad …
The young boys was addicted playing games on his iPad and loves it so much that he usually fall asleep with iPad cuddled in his arms. He started to have serious headache and after an X-ray examination, the doctor told the parents their kids has occurred a change on his cervical lordosis.

The kids need 3 to 6 month to fully recover from his cervical pain. The rise of the iPad could prove to be a serious pain in the neck if its ergonomic failings are not addressed.
