Florida's Dean Fishman, who is a practicing chiropractor at the Text Neck Institute in Fort Lauderdale, said that the symptoms are being visible even in younger kids. "It's starting younger and younger. There are more than six billion phones connected, and that's not counting the Kindles, iPads, tablets and all these devices we rely on daily", he said.
