text neck

According to chiropractors, there’s a new ailment afflicting avid texters. Thousands are being treated for the condition known as “text neck” which is caused by the neck being flexed for too long while staring down at a smart phone — obviously an unnatural position for your neck muscles. The condition, which can result in headaches, shoulder, arm and wrist pain, most often afflicts tall, young women with slender necks. Nice, I’m “high risk.” To prevent from suffering from “text neck” doctors suggest I take regular breaks from texting (not possible) or hold the phone in front of my face while texting (looks lame). Or I could go back to talking on the phone. Not gonna happen. Guess my neck is screwed. [Daily Mail UK]
