They have an institute for just this syndrome!
Have you been attacked by your lap top or phone?
I know from being in the lunch room with younger adults they all sit there tapping through their meals with their heads down.
I could not believe the doc said he had a patient that was three!

When I spend too much time on the computer, I always feel the urge to do some back bends to relieve the neck/shoulder stress. Hunching over books or newspapers can have the same effect, but before the texting days, we tended to put those aside during meal times.
