This teenager wants to help fix your 'text neck'

Pallavi Singhal20:32, Feb 23 2019


When he was in year 10, Oliver Bowman started getting bad migraines every few weeks. The cause: text neck.

The migraines wouldn't go away and Oliver eventually went to a see a physiotherapist.

"That's when I found out about text neck and how much of an issue it is and how many people have it," said Oliver, 18, who graduated from Sydney's St Luke's Grammar School last year.

"It's when people are always hunching over and looking at their phones, which leads to a number of problems including neck and shoulder pain and migraines.

I am curious as too how much "text neck" has and is costing the NZ ACC over the years.


Has anyone requested this information from the ACC yet?


If yes can you please post here.


Thank you.
