Text Neck Syndrome

Texting is one of the most current issues for neck pain. "Every one of us almost all the time has our phone with us", says Jobyna Whiting, Neurosurgeon at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center. Having that position for texting is not neutral and having it hour after hour when your neck is not supposed to be in that same position constantly causes a real problem for your neck. There are some angles that put a lot of weight on the neck causing a lot of pain. We have to avoid them in order to take care of our health.
