Students, click on the link below to learn why texting could be causing back pain. Remember you only get one spine so let’s take care of it.
“His study found that bending your head at a 60 degree angle to get a better look at your selfie is putting 60 pounds’ worth of pressure on your cervical spine, the portion of the spine above the shoulders. That’s more than the weight of the average 7 year old.”
“The weight seen by the spine dramatically increases when flexing the head forward at varying degrees,” write the authors in the study. “Loss of the natural curve of the cervical spine leads to incrementally increased stresses about the cervical spine. These stresses may lead to early wear, tear, degeneration and possibly surgeries.”
Students, you only get one spine so let’s take care of it. Read the article below. When I was in middle school I never carried a backpack. I would carry the folder and book I needed for that period. When class was done I would go to my locker and put my book back and grab another book for my next class. You have 4 minute passing periods. USE YOUR LOCKER!
