'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.
Typically, an adult human head weighs between 10 and 12 pounds. As the head tilts or angles forward (in the case of looking at your cell phone), the neck muscles, tendons and ligaments support the head during movement and when static. The strain on your neck rises as the forward angle of your head increases.
