Local doctor says he's seeing more patients with text-neck problems

It's a condition that's literally a pain in the neck for many adults and children who are always on their cell phone.

Dr. Jason Allen of ProActive Chiropractic and Wellness says "text neck" is a condition that can cause body alignment issues for adults and children who stare down at their cell phone or lap top for extended periods of time.

"For every 10 or 15 degrees your head is translated forward, it adds an additional 15 - 20 pounds to your head," says Dr. Allen. "That can transform your posture from an upright normal posture to a more rounded one."

Dr. Allen says there are ways to help correct the issue.
