The prevalence of mobile phone use among young adults (18-21 y.o.) is increasing. It has been shown that viewing a mobile phone screen correlates with a more forward head posture (FHP).
Simultaneously, biomechanical studies have shown that increased FHP places increased mechanical load on the physical structures of the cervical spine.
So, does increased use of mobile phone (text neck), have any correlation with the increasing prevalence of neck pain?
