Move Over Carpal Tunnel, Now It’s Text Neck
Just when we thought we’d heard everything, now there is a new medical condition related to texting. It’s a chiropractors dream…the dreaded “text neck.”
According to TheFrisky.com, “Thousands are being treated for the condition known as “text neck” which is caused by the neck being flexed for too long while staring down at a smart phone — obviously an unnatural position for your neck muscles. The condition, which can result in headaches, shoulder, arm and wrist pain, most often afflicts tall, young women with slender necks.”
Maybe we should all just go back writing letters. OH…..Ouch…that hurts too!!
