Paskhover and his colleagues identified a total of 2,501people who presented to hospitals with injuries of the head and neck related to cellphone use, based on data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System collected between 1998 and 2017.

Head and neck injuries related to cellphone use were relatively rare until the rate began to increase sharply in 2007, the year the first iPhone was released, followed by a much steeper increase that peaked in 2016.

In all, more than 56 percent of cellphone-related injuries documented in the study were reported by women, while almost 40 percent occurred in teens and young adults. "You fall and you can get a pretty bad injury".
