These days, most of us are guilty of spending too much time on our mobile phones or tablets. But did you know that overusing such devices can actually lead to damaging spine problems? There’s even a name for the modern condition; and it’s called Text Neck.
Our chiropractor at Witney Chiropractic Clinic warns that looking down at mobiles, tablets, or other wireless devices too frequently and for too long can lead to sustained damage in the neck. And in growing children, this could possibly even lead to long-term damage and lifelong neck pain!
The problem with texting, or bending your neck to use the internet, is that people tend to do it a lot more frequently than other activities that adopt the same position, such as reading.
Protect the health of yours and your family’s necks and limit the amount of time you all use on your mobile devices. The risk of chronic pain is just not worth taking.
