Is Your Smartphone a Pain in Your Neck?

We’ve all heard of, and probably experienced, ‘text neck’ – the soreness in your neck due to excessively hunching over your smartphone, but we are still seeing tons of new articles on the subject. Texas A&M just released an article discussing the rise in number of young people experiencing back and neck pain, and talks about a study that correlates the amount of time on the phone to hunching disposition. It even discusses an app (how ironic) that includes a band you wear around your back, that alerts you when you’re hunching over for $99.99.
