Text Neck – Yes, it’s a Thing!

Check out this article in the Washington Post about a new phenomenon in health care: It’s informally called “text neck”, and it refers to the neck and upper back pain, headaches, and even arm and hand symptoms that can be caused by excessive texting. Looking down at your phone is only half the problem. A sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, static positions, and muscle imbalances – these can all contribute to the syndrome.
