Billions of people are using cell phone devices. This is what texting does to your spine as the head is tilted forward: a severe spine deformation.
According to a study made by Dr. Kenneth K. Hansraj, chief of spine surgery at New York Spine Surgery & Rehabilitation Medicine, published in the Surgical Technology International journal, looking down at a cell phone is the equivalent of placing a 60-pound weight on one’s neck.
“The purpose of this study is to assess the forces incrementally seen by the cervical spine as the head is tilted forward, into worsening posture.”
Hold your phone straight in front of you, instead of bending your head down!
