Free App For Text Neck
Dr. Kenneth Hansraj is the chief of spine surgery at New York Spine Surgery & Rehabilitation Medicine. He published a study in the journal Surgical Technology International that showed when the head is flexed forward at an angle of 60 degrees to look at a mobile device, the effective weight of the head increases significantly. This forward angle can be equivalent to 60 pounds of pressure on the cervical spine. I personally see this added stress on the neck causing problems for many of my clients. Dr. Dean Fishman coined the term “text neck” and founded the Text Neck Institute. Here is Dr. Fishman’s website. You can download his free app. This app will gently remind you to lift your phone when the angle is down too low!
