'Text Neck' A Physical Problem Related To Smartphones
The smartphone was a major innovation — positive in many ways.
It allows us to reach friends, family and coworkers via talking, texting and e-mail. We can read books and watch movies on them, too.
The most commonly-referenced negative has to do with how we can never quite get away, because a smartphone means we’re always within reach.
Now it turns out there’s actually a physical problem related to smartphones. It’s called “text neck.”
With me to talk about the condition is neurosurgeon Dr. Igor Yusupov, founder of the Arizona Brain and Spine Center.
