Have you heard the term "text neck"? If not, you can probably quickly come to a conclusion. It's a condition caused by repeatedly leaning forward while viewing and operating your technology device. This constant leaning forward is sometimes associated with chronic neck pain. The CDC's National Health Statistics estimate that 30% of the US population deals with neck pain each year. Our bodies are not meant for sitting for long periods or constantly hunching over a computer screen. Office workers, manual laborers, and healthcare workers are at the most risk.
