New research in bio-mechanics suggest that young people are developing hornlike spikes, bone spurs on the back of their skulls due to the positioning of the way they hold their cell phone between their head and shoulder. Also a constant looking down can be the culprit along with neck issues later in life. Some of the horns are over an inch long and can be felt through the skin.
Researchers in Australia say younger adults are still growing and constant use of the device and altering their bodies can cause bone and muscular issues as they grow.
Doctors are now treating what they call Text Neck and Text Thumb due to cell phones. Since the new finding of bone spurs growing on the skull, the condition is now dubbed "phone bones" or "head horns".
