Latest update from our client, Dr. Matthew D. Hepler: Is Text Neck the new hazard of modern life?

The negative tendency around the world of being attached to electronic devices and phones has finally started to yield painful results. The distinct posture while texting is now causing an overuse syndrome in active users which has been labeled “text neck.”

Tilting the head forward, as is typically done to view and write text messages, forces the neck muscles, tendons, and ligaments to strain to hold the head up.

Usually, this wear-and-tear-related damage appears in older adults or those in occupations such as dentistry and welding that require keeping the head bent forward for extended periods of time. However, Dr. Hepler, a spine surgeon in Boynton Beach, has recently been observing this condition in much younger patients.
