Dr. Mukai on KVUE: 'Tech Neck'

We all know that texting and driving is a danger. But, did you know that texting is also a pain in the neck... literally?

A new study published in Surgical Technology International says that looking down at a cell phone is equivalent to placing a 60 pound weight on your neck. How much is 60 pounds? Six bowling balls or an 8-year old child. All this looking down can lead to a lot of aches and pains in your neck and spine, which is often referred to as 'tech neck'.

Dr. Ai Mukai, physiatrist at Texas Orthopedics, discusses the study on KVUE-TV and what we can do to prevent it.
