“Text Neck” Epidemic: Dr. Brian Paris Warns of the Dangers of Texting on Good Morning Washington

Mobile devices can literally become a pain in the neck. Constant texting, typing and tweeting can lead to “text neck,” and Dr. Brian Paris of Advanced Wellness Systems joins Good Morning Washington to shed light on the text neck epidemic and share tips for improving posture.

On air, Dr. Paris illustrates how long periods of technology use leaves users, particularly children, hunched over in a forward flex position. This poor posture places unnecessary pressure and stress on the neck, shoulders and spine. Not only does “text neck” impact one’s musculoskeletal system, poor posture negatively affects one’s emotional state and body language.

To combat the effects of “text neck,” Dr. Paris recommends using technology in 10-minute intervals and taking a 10-second break to get into correct posture:

  1. Get up.
  2. Grip the floor with your feet.
  3. Pull your belly button into your spine.
  4. Let your hands down.
  5. Stand up tall.
