Posture, especially good upright posture, is declining fast. With usage on these devices nearing 4hrs+ per day, the strain on the ligaments, muscles and joints in the neck is too great. The effect? ‘text neck’.
Text Neck is described by Health professionals such as chiropractors, when a person is bowing the head at an angle for extended periods while using a smartphone risking serious repetitive stress injuries.
A neck should have a healthy neck curve. Text neck can lead to neck pain, headaches, eye pain, shoulder pain, nausea and migraines.
