What is Tech Neck?
Originally called “Text Next”, “Tech Neck” is caused by slouching over, tilting your head to the side or looking down for a long period of time at ALL devices causing tension, neck pain and headaches as a result.
Repeatedly putting stress on your head and neck by leaning forward could trigger pain down the road. Even before you are experiencing symptoms, it is important to get evaluated and correct the issue before it worsens.
