People who are in the habit of constantly texting to their friends on their cell phones may suffer from "text neck", doctors and chiropractors warned.
More and more people are complaining of pain in the neck, shoulders and headaches due to texting and doctors warned that the curved posture assumed by the body when texting or watching videos on the mobile phones could cause health problems that may last a lifetime.
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.
