Do You suffer from “Text Neck” ?

The term “text neck” was first coined in 2008 as described in an article on CNN. It describes a condition of neck pain and or headache that occurs due to the poor positioning of the neck while using phones, i pads, etc. The neck is flexed forward placing significant stress on the neck and upper back. The human head may weight 10-12 pounds but the pressure through the neck may double with every inch the neck is flexed forward.
