Doctors diagnosing more 'text neck'

October 7, 2011

A spokesman with the "British Chiropractic Association" said there are a rising number of patients with this condition, which is caused by flexing the neck for extended periods of time. Some experts say it can be a precursor of permanent arthritic damage if it goes without treatment.

The solution?? Doctors say taking regular screen breaks and looking straight ahead while tucking the chin back every few minutes can help ward off symptoms.
