Text Neck

What is Text Neck?

Text neck occurs when your posture presents with the head leading more in front of the body. For every inch your head moves forward,  it increases the weight of loading on the vertebrates of the neck, disc and joints. The increased stress from improper posture can cause arthritis, disc degeneration,  or spinal wear and tear.
