With the advent of technology making our lives easier…there can be ramifications. Although the utilization of cell phones has made our lives easier, we are seeing many health related complications associated with the excessive use of these devices. Texting, the modern means of communication, is causing repetitive stress to the cervical spine (NECK), upper back and shoulder regions. The constant/ repetitive activity of looking down (cervical flexion) is causing abnormal posture and stress to the vertebral column (SPINE), and the ligaments and muscles of the neck and shoulders, causing neck pain and upper back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, sloughing posture with rounded shoulders, and fatigue.
