Have you heard of “Text Neck”, some people will claim that this is an epidemic facing our country, but in this episode of Fitness With Feldman, Doctor Justin Feldman of Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance explains why it is not a real thing. He talks about how this is something being used to scare people into thinking they need help, and explains why your head will not fall off.
Text neck was first talked about in this Washington Post Article and then was jumped on by people all around the country looking to capitalize on people’s fear. As this Atlantic Article does a good job of describing, it is not a real thing. As the author does a great job of explaining we have been holding our heads in this position for a long time before the cell phone came around. Humans have been holding babies, reading books and news papers, all in this same posture.
Have a listen and let us know what you think, and if you hear a friend say they have text neck, point them here!
