Text Neck – A New Hertfordshire Epidemic?

Text Neck – It’s Not Just A Posture Problem, It’s A Health Problem

text neck hertfordshireParents are right to be concerned about the hours their children spend looking down at their phone.  And of course it’s not just children on mobile phones – it’s you too most likely.

The forward head posture caused by continual mobile phone and now tablet use is going to be responsible for more than just neck pain and headaches.

Text Neck can cause or contribute to upper back pain, shoulder pain and far worse.

Rene Caillet, Director of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Southern California points out these facts about forward head posture:

Forward head posture leads to loss of optimal spinal motion and function.

Optimal spinal motion is necessary for endorphin production (the chemical mediators that help reduce pain). Without this endorphin production the rest of the body tissues can become more sensitised to pain.

Forward Head Syndrome can deplete lung capacity by as much as 30%.  Shortness of breath can lead to heart and blood vascular disease.

Forward head posture can cause the entire gastrointestinal tract to be affected, particularly the large intestine. Loss of good bowel function and evacuation are a common sequel associated with this postural weakness and may lead to toxic effects.

Apart from banning the use of mobile phones and tablets here’s what you can do:

Encourage Good Posture and get regular posture checks.
