Patty’s Ponderings…Is ‘Text Neck’ the New Carpal Tunnel?
Dr. Dean Fishman claims he coined the term, ‘text neck syndrome’ while treating a 17-year-old patient in 2008. The girl complained of neck pain and headaches. The doctor was talking to her mother when he noticed the girl hunched over her smartphone, texting like crazy.
Dr. Fishman in a moment of divine inspiration, created the Fishman’s Text Neck Institute mobile app to remind you about your posture. This will come in handy the next time you’re on your smartphone for 7 or 8 hours!
