Austin doctor talks about another problem tied to texting

You've heard about the dangers of texting and driving, but an Austin doctor tells KLBJ's Perry Watson texting could also be the reason for your next trip to the massage therapist or your doctor's office. Dr. Mukai says it's a problem that's not going away anytime soon, with studies showing adults spend an average of two to four hours a day on the phone and teens spend four to five hours a day. She says that's 1,200 to 5,000 hours a year of additional force on the neck.
