Children as young as eight are being diagnosed with whiplash like symptoms.
The cause? ‘Text neck’ according to Yahoo 7.
‘Text neck is a range of symptoms related to having your head down for a long period of time using a mobile device,’ Physiotherapist Felicity Kermode said.
‘In extreme cases the pain could prevent them from participating in sport or even getting through a full day at school.’
The condition requires months of physiotherapy work to reverse, with maneuvers like those used to treat whiplash used.
