Text Neck May Lead to Long Term Health Issues

January 29, 2015 (Cadillac, MI)- Technology is a pain in the neck, literally. No matter where you go -- the grocery store, gym, doctor's office or even in the comfort of your own home -- you've most likely seen someone with slumped shoulders, hunched back and a forward tilted head aka Text Neck. Text Neck is becoming a prevalent problem among a U.S. population obsessed with their phones.

Gus Meyjes, president of Dynamic Physical Therapy said, “The winter season has people looking down at their phones and other technology devices even more than ever because being active is just a little harder during the cold months. This is making for more strained back and neck muscles during a already hectic time of the year.”

If technology users don’t work to use proper posture long term damage may occur.

Learn to combat text neck with exercises and tips from Dynamic Physical Therapy, a member of the American Physical Therapy Association's Private Practice Section and owner of Dynamic Physical Therapy, a local physical therapy clinic. Visit www.dynamicptmichigan.com for more information.
