Texting Hurts Your Spine!

That’s correct – a back surgeon from New York has done all kinds of research on the subject, and he’s convinced that the way we normally text, by looking down at our phones, exerts around 60 pounds of additional force on our heads. Given the fact that many Indians spend hours a day texting, Whatsappin friends over time, that pattern can really have a damaging impact on the spine. If left unchecked, it can ultimately lead to back surgeries, etc.
