Got ‘Text Neck’?
Did you know . . .
- 10 years old, the average age at which an American child gets their first smartphone,
- Americans check their cell phones once every 12 minutes, burying their heads in their phones 80 times a day,
- 1 in 10 people checks their phone once every 4 minutes!
‘Tech neck’ or ‘text neck’ is caused by straining your neck forward at unnatural angles to see your smart devices (tablet, cell phone or another wireless device) screen. Your neck stays there for much longer than it should, resulting in muscle strain and pain.
This poor ‘text neck’ posture typically involves your shoulders to be hunched forward. With the awkwardly angled neck and rounded shoulders, you’re straining your entire upper body.
