Do you spend an average of 2-4 hours each day looking down on your mobile devices? Checking your phone too frequently can be a real pain in the neck.

Text neck is a term used to describe the musculoskeletal pain associated with looking down at mobile devices for prolonged periods of time.

But did you know that “text neck” is silently killing you? Yes, it causes much deeper and far more serious problems including:

  • Constant fatigue and lack of energy
  • Pain in your neck, shoulders or upper, lower and middle back
  • Poor sleep or insomnia
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Dizziness, vertigo and balance issues
  • Looking 10 lbs fatter than you actually are
  • Early degeneration of your spine
  • Pinched and trapped nerves
  • Noisy mouth breathing, snoring & sleep apnea
  • Jaw pain and sinus issues

If you’ve suffered any of these without realizing the root problem was text neck, you’re not alone.

It affects nearly everyone, no matter what your age or level of fitness.

It’s a problem that originates in just one area of your body but affects your overall health, including your mental as well as your physical state.

It’s forward head posture… also known as texting neck.

You’ve probably seen it yourself, in those guys and girls who are physically active but walk around with a chicken head or giraffe neck.

Instead of a powerful, strong chest, their shoulders are hunched forward, their head droops down and their curved back almost gives them a hump.

It looks weak, unhealthy and unsightly. And it undoes all their hard work.

Your neck is designed to remain vertical, supporting the weight of your skull in a perfect line from the top of your head straight down through your body to your feet.

When you look at yourself in the mirror from the side, your ear, your shoulder and your hips should all be in a straight line down to the floor.

If it is unaligned and your ear is in front of your shoulders, it’s a sure sign of forward head posture.

You see, the average head weighs 10-12lbs. When your head sits perfectly upon your neck and shoulders, the body naturally adapts to holding this weight.

But if your head is constantly pulled forward, the weight of your head pulls on your neck and puts pressure on your spine.

When your head is pulled forward the additional pressure on your neck, shoulders and back rises dramatically causing serious tissue damage.

In fact, every inch your head is thrust forward from its natural position adds another 10 lbs of stress on the neck, shoulders, back and spine.

Now, here’s your quiz. Which posture do 90% of people suffer from that is slowly destroying your body?

a) Flat Feet

b) Tilted Pelvis

c) Forward Head Posture

d) Low Back Tightness
