This blog series is about the health needs of teen girls. From preventing sports injuries to dealing with the physical and hormonal changes of adolescence, we wanted to shine a light on the specific issues facing some teen girls. Today, we’re talking about a rare but serious condition called ‘Scoliosis’.
All of this time on our phones and tablets is leading many, particularly in America, into a more sedentary lifestyle. Not only are we sitting more, we’re often in a hunched position which can cause strain to the neck and spine. You may even notice changes in your neck alignment, muscle strain around the neck and other spinal differences. Not to mention, changes in your vision caused by excessive screen time.
