How Can Your Smartphone Be Affecting Your Health?

If you are reading this from a phone or tablet, you are more than likely putting stress on your neck. “Text neck” is a problem that is becoming more and more common as people spend time on their smart devices. This is a huge problem for your health. An adult head weighs 10-12 lbs in a neutral position, but as we flex forward the weight starts to feel heavier and at 60 degrees the head feels like 60 lbs.
