As we evolve, we'd like to believe that our bodies are becoming better at adapting to certain illnesses and genetic mutations that have plagued humans for years.

However, we probably never expected to cause ourselves more harm.

Doctors are becoming increasingly worried about "text neck", which happens when you look down at your phone for too long.

"Headaches, fatigue, you can just watch someone they are going to be doing this business, rubbing their neck. When you start seeing a kid doing that you just go that's not right. Something's wrong. Kids are supposed to be out playing and exercising. It only gets worse when you age so when you're a kid and you're rubbing your neck it's not good," said Dr. Patrick Kennedy, of Kennedy Chiropractic.

As we look down out our phones more and more, we are causing strain on our neck which can lead to permanent damage. If you think the damage is just limited to posture, you are extremely wrong.
