“Text neck” is a term to describe the symptoms associated with overuse of electronic devices, particularly our smartphones. This results in overload and repetitive stress on the muscles and joints in the cervical spine from prolonged forward head or neck posture, often leading to headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and even numbness in the arms.
Studies have analyzed the stress placed on the cervical spine through the typical posture of people looking at their smart phones. The average head weighs approximately 10-12 pounds! The increased angle that our heads tilt when looking down at mobile devices has been shown to increase the weight on our necks to about 60 pounds. That’s a lot of excessive weight to hold up!
