总是低头看手机看平板,一不小心脖子就又僵了。是时候改变生活方式,远离“短信脖”啦。

Text neck refers to the neck and upper back pain caused by an excessive and prolonged forward head tilt, such as when texting or performing other mobile device tasks.

“短信脖”指的是由于过度和长时间的头部倾斜导致的颈部和上背部疼痛,比如发送短信,或者使用移动设备时的其他动作。

The root of the problem appears to be our heads which, weighing in at 4–5 kilos, are harder to support when we bend over.

产生这一问题的根本原因在于我们的头部:它们重达4至5千克。我们低头时,就会很难支撑头的重量。

Lanman and Cuellar suggest simple lifestyle changes to relieve the stress from the ‘text neck’ posture. They recommend holding cell phones in front of the face, or near eye level, while texting.

兰曼和利亚尔建议说,简单的生活方式的改变就可以减轻“短信脖”给身体的压力。他们建议人们在发送短信时,把手机举到脸前面,或者与眼睛高度平齐。

Example:

Text neck can lead to wear-and-tear on the spine.

“短信脖”会磨损脊椎。
