Text Neck: An Epidemic for Kids, Teens and Adults
If those symptoms sound similar to whiplash, you’re right. Whiplash is a sudden injury, but text neck is a gradually-developing, poor-posture injury affecting the same critical area: the spinal cord as it leaves the brain, comes down through the neck and goes down the back. As adults, we must correct our posture, and help our child and teen family members correct theirs. Kids are especially vulnerable to long-term chronic pain from tech neck because their nervous system health impacts their growth and development.
