Our smartphones and tablets might help us with tasks in our day to day lives, but they aren’t helping us fight aging. The use of these technologies could be giving you some brand new wrinkles known as “text neck.”
The term was originally used to reference the pain and numbness caused by constantly having your head tilted forward, but now doctors are referring to it as the horizontal wrinkle that forms on the middle of the front of your neck.
Of course, you’ve probably been looking down for more than just texting and scrolling through social media. The problem is that, nowadays, we are constantly bending our necks to look down, whether it’s to type or to scroll through our phones and tablets.
