Text neck is a commonly used expression for a repetitive strain injury, However, it is not a medical diagnosis.
Text neck occurs when excessive computer use, texting or mobile devices are the primary cause of neck dysfunction.
Symptoms of text neck, include pain in the neck, upper back and shoulders.
The pain may be localised and range from general aching to intense pain and a stabbing feeling.
Neck, chest and upper back muscles become deconditioned resulting in rounding of the shoulders and forward head posture, leading to reduced mobility in neck and shoulders. Headaches may occur due to the tightness of muscles at the base of the skull and neck.
