As new discoveries in technology increase, so do spinal issues. The term “Text Neck” is being commonly used for the condition in the upper neck from looking down at a phone or mobile device for excessive periods of time. This distorts the neck posture and causes pain. NBC highlights this issue by comparing your head to a bowling ball. Watch the video below.
Though your communication is important, be mindful the next time you use your mobile device to not cause harm to your neck. Dr. Harris shares more practical tips on Text Neck and how to care for your neck.
- Raise your device to meet your face
