Smartphone addiction is ruining women’s necks. Alam said three out of ten female users are trying to get rid of the ‘text neck’. A recent study by Britain’s top cosmetic manufacturer ‘Pre Beauty’ has said something like this.
According to the researchers, two-thirds of female users are experiencing unbearable pain in the neck and shoulders, while one-fourth are worried about getting a sore throat. However, 33 percent of women are more concerned about the groin than the pain.
Forty-two percent of women in the study agreed to increase the use of smartphones in the coronary artery. It has been revealed that he is running on a smartphone an average of 13 times in an hour. Two-thirds said they would have already started taking steps to keep themselves away from smartphones if they were aware that ‘text necklaces’ also develop itching along with neck pain. Twenty-five percent of women have started using expensive anti-aging creams to get rid of itching.
What is ‘Text Neck’ –
– When the user is standing or sitting in an upright position, the weight of his head is 4 and a half to 5 kg. But when he leans his head to read or read messages on smartphones, tablets and laptops, it doubles or triples.
– A spinal cord injury center in New York was found in 2015 to reduce the weight of a curved head at an angle of 15 degrees to 12.3 kg and reduce it by 45 degrees to 22.3 kg. This puts extra pressure on the neck and spine. The user may not only experience unbearable pain, but may also experience some crawling in the area around the neck and shoulders.
Don’t bend your head
Lead researcher Annie Tokar suggested working with the phone and tablet screen in the eye instead of tilting the head and reading or typing the message. Practicing right-left, up-down rotation after long-term use of the phone is also beneficial.

1. Smartphone Pinky
– When the thumbs are busy typing messages on the keyboard while chatting, the full weight of the smartphone and tablet falls on the finger. This causes the finger to slowly turn towards the palate. Experts call this stage ‘smartphone pink’.
Finger shape is bad

Release from a practice

Now try to bend the top of the finger continuously for 20 seconds, repeat this process five to ten times.
3. Cellphone elbow
