Text Neck (Yes, this is a thing!)

Text Neck (Yes, this is a thing!)

What does the term “text neck” refer to? Text neck is the term used to describe the neck pain and damage sustained from looking down at your cell phone, tablet, or other wireless devices too frequently and for too long. This term is increasingly common these days but is easily treatable. A recent study shows that 79% of the population between the ages 18 and 44 have their cell phones with them almost all the time. The main problem with texting, is that it adds one more activity that causes us to look down, and people tend to do it for much longer periods. It is especially concerning because young, growing children could possibly cause permanent damage to their cervical spines that could lead to lifelong neck pain.
