Chiropractor Develops “Text Neck” App

Share

A South Florida chiropractor continues to draw attention for his invention that helps people who constantly bury their heads in their cellphones.

Dean Fishman, a Weston resident who practices in Plantation, was featured in the Wall Street Journal’s “Aches and Claims” health column on May 24. The article noted that Fishman, who trademarked the term “Text Neck” in 2009, now has a patented phone app that warns users when they drop their head –  causing neck pain and headaches as well as early onset of arthritis, arm pain, gastrointestinal and breathing problems – as they view their phone.

The app works without interruption of other functions on the phone by having a green face, which is located in the top corner of the device, meaning users are viewing their phones with good posture; a red face means that they need to make an adjustment to “anatomical neutral,” which is defined as having the ears over the shoulders and the shoulders over the hips.

Text neck, is a modern condition characterized by neck pain and other symptoms as a result of constantly looking down at a smart phone, tablet, or other device. While prevention is a key element towards avoiding text neck from developing in the first place, it can be difficult to maintain a proper posture while using any of these devices. Fortunately though, a new app has been created to help individuals keep a good posture while using a device.
