Why Do I Have Neck Pain After Texting?

Does your neck ache after gazing down at your mobile device for a long time? With all the new phones and ipads available let’s keep in mind our ergonomics.

Due to the popularity of text messaging with teenagers, the condition is more common in adolescents and young adults, but can be seen in anyone who spends hours looking down at mobile devices.

Keeping the neck and head stretched forward for long periods could eventually cause the natural curvature of the neck to reverse, potentially leading to serious health problems. The amount of people suffering from “text neck” is on the rise due to the increasing use of smart phones and tablet computers

You can avoid “text neck” by bringing your phone up to eye level so you are not tilting your head down to see it, taking frequent breaks, and using a range of motion exercises.
