Happy Monday everyone. Hope you’re not in pain due to hunching over your beloved phones and computers when you’re typing and texting. “Text neck” is a repetitive strain injury that we can be afflicted with if we use our smartphones and computing devices too much. This article from The Telegraph starts with this sobering sentence:
The affliction, caused by flexing the neck for extended periods of time, can be a forerunner of permanent arthritic damage if it goes without treatment.
The article talks about how “text neck” is caused by the neck being flexed for a prolonged period of time, what could physically happen and some stretching advice. So, sit up straight, have a read (and some coffee if it will help) and then take a stretch break.
Because, we’re already dealing with enough stuff where are bodies are concerned. We don’t need to add anything extra to the mix.
