Text Neck Affects Body Function

Text Neck

Text neck affects the entire body because it is directly related to our posture and imbalances in our posture. There is definitely a link between posture and health and I’m going to list some different statistics from the American Journal of Pain Management.

They found through their research that posture and normal physiology are interrelated. Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production. Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic and stress related illnesses. Homeostasis and nervous system function are ultimately connected with posture.

And lastly, despite the considerable evidence that posture affects physiology and function, the significant influence of posture on health is not addressed by most physicians. Even though there is considerable evidence out there that posture and health are really related, most physicians are not addressing it.

I highly recommend getting yourself to a healthcare professional that can identify your postural problems, text neck issues, and implement some sort of treatment plan to correct them.
