How often do you see your child in this posture?
More than ever, children, teens and young adults are spending hours every day in this abnormal posture, creating a syndrome known as Text Neck. Because of the increased strain on the muscles and joints, children are now reporting chronic neck pain, headaches, mid back pain, and even low back pain; conditions that generally are not seen until middle age. Additionally, abnormal posture like this has been linked to increases in fatigue, allergies, asthma, depression and negative mood as well as the development of arthritis.
