Our founder and director; Yama Zafer, D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic), has been treating neck and back pain patients for the better part of 20 years. According to him, Text Neck is not new and has been around for centuries. The difference today is that text neck is widespread affecting millions. According to Dr. Yama, the origin of text-neck-like symptoms and disorders go as far back as the industrial revolution.
The Origin of Tex Neck
The industrial revolution was when humanity left their farms for factories and offices. It was then that people started to engage in occupations, which required them to maintain a flexed head and neck posture for extended periods of time. The modern age has left its imprint on us, and as we look back, we can see it’s impact especially in the mid-1800s and yet again in the early 1980s when the typewriter and then personal computers keyboards invaded our lives.
In the mid-1990s, we took a turn for the worse—with the advent of the mighty laptop. Even with all this, our society managed and we were able to absorb some of the stresses these devices placed on our bodies. A change came about with the advent of the new age—smartphones, and devices. These devices have changed our lives faster than we can accommodate. At the speed of light, they are transforming us and increasing our productivity. But all this comes at a high cost. For some the cost is too much to bear, leading to disability or worse.
It was not until 2006 when Dr. Fishman, an American Chiropractor, coined the term “Text Neck” He was the first to give a name to what now has researchers throughout the world taking notice of.
The average person, most healthcare practitioners, and even some doctors do not take much notice of proper biomechanics. Posture is overlooked by most people, but not mothers. Yes, mom was right. We need to stop slouching and must sit upright or else.
Dr. Yama related that Text Neck is the next epidemic. A slipped disc is already too common, but in the coming years, it will become the number one health issue for those under the age of 10. That is scary!!!
The best thing to remember is that Text Neck is sending you a message… You must heed the warning or prepare for a painful existence. Thus, text neck is not to be taken lightly or to LOL about!
Now here is a piece of advice from that everyone can use from our Doctors of Chiropractic at Chiropractic Specialty Centers: if you like to text, just lift your phone up to eye-level and text. Don’t slouch and lean over to text on your phone. Text neck sure is possible only if you can manage to avoid stressing your neck. Start by having the phone come to you by bringing it up to an eye level. Use the voice dictation function. After all, you are more important than the phone. Think of who should go to whom. You are the boss, you decide!
Text Neck is serious and can have dangerous implications for you, your children and your parents in ways that we still don’t fully understand.
The worse is yet to come. It is better to be prepared. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
