TEXTING, FORWARD HEAD POSTURE & NECK PAIN
Americans are obsessed with text messaging. According to the 2009 Census, Americans sent 110 billion text messages in December 2008 alone, more than double the amount sent in the same month a year earlier.
Texting may be a convenient, but it also has health implications because it reverses the normal “C-curve” of the cervical spine, causing neck and shoulder pain and what is known as “Forward Head Posture” (FHP). According to the Mayo Clinic, forward head posture leads to “long term muscle strain, disc herniation and pinched nerves”.
Young people are experiencing neck and shoulder pain because of texting, commonly called “text neck”. FHP increases the weight of the head on the spine, causing abnormal leverage. Dr. Roger Sperry, a Nobel Prize recipient for brain research, explains, “When you have FHP, your brain will rob energy from your thinking, metabolism, and immune function to deal with abnormal gravity/posture relationships and processing”.
Enter PILLO1 cervical pillow, the revolutionary pillow design invented by renowned Dr. Raymond Hall, who wanted to find a simple and effective treatment to restore the natural health of the spine. PILLO1 cervical pillow’s unique design helps reestablish and strengthen the C-curve of the cervical spine while sleeping.
