Something I'm sure we're all guilty of from time to time.
The frequent prolonged forward flexion of the neck and head causes changes in cervical spine, curve, supporting ligaments, tendons, musculature and bony segments, eventually causing natural curvature of the neck to reverse.
Potentially leading to early spinal arthritis, disc degeneration, headaches, and up to 30% decrease in lung capacity. 🔸🔸
Children are most at risk, because of their large head to body ratio, and underdeveloped neck strength. Chronic overuse of texting and typing are the major contributors, often leading to short, and gradually building to long term neck pain.
