Spine Remodeling Could Help Millions as Reported By The Head and Neck Centers of Excellence

A recent Washington Post says: “‘Text neck’ is becoming an ‘epidemic’ and could wreck your spine.”

The article goes on to explain that this is “a risk for 58 percent of Americans.”

Chances are, if you are experiencing ongoing headaches, neck-pain or back-pain, it’s possible this could be text-neck and if you are reading this information right now on your hand-held device or lap top, this could be you.

In simple terms, this means that where your neck is supposed to be curved, it’s now “too straight.” This causes countless health problems like pain and discomfort, functional limitations with normal daily activities, and deteriorating health with a low quality of life.

This issue continue to gain national attention. A CNN article states “The average human head weighs 10 pounds in a neutral position -- when your ears are over your shoulders. For every inch you tilt your head forward, the pressure on your spine doubles. So if you're looking at a smartphone in your lap, your neck is holding up what feels like 20 or 30 pounds.”

What are your options?

If you don’t want to give up your mobile phone… the answer for you could be Spine Remodeling.
