Smartphones are an integral part of our lives, but they can also cause a lot of pain.

Learn what “text neck” is and how to prevent it.

 

Technology touches our lives in many different ways. It has opened the roads of communication, allowed us to see people from other countries on video, pack computers in a bag and carry them along, and given us the ability to take quality photos any time we want.

So what if we told you that technology could actually be causing you physical pain? The way we hold devices (and how long we use them), can actually manifest in aches and pains throughout our body.

Namely: text neck.

Read on to find out what text neck is, and how you might be able to alleviate/prevent it.

Here are some tips for selecting and wearing a kid’s backpack to prevent injury.

If you’re a parent, these questions probably feature prominently in your morning routine before your child leaves for school.

If your child has been complaining about neck, shoulder, or back pain, their backpack could be the culprit.
