Text Neck

Did you know that misalignment in your neck can cause headaches along with neck pain? Many of you have been using your phone much more lately and we are seeing more and more neck pain and headaches as a result. But the good news is that patients coming in our office with these symptoms are getting relief FAST and without medication” We take digital x-rays in our office and amazed at what we are seeing.

In an X-ray, the neck typically curves backward, and what we’re seeing is that the curve is being reversed as people look down at their phones for hours each day. The overwhelming majority of our youth rely on texting as their preferred form of communication. This leads to hours spent in poor posture every day.

Since text neck often causes actual curvature and misalignments of the spine, chiropractic care can really help. A chiropractor can use spinal manipulation to properly align the spine and keep it healthier and pain free.

Other times, a desk and chair are present, but may not have the adjustability needed to provide a suitable long-term work environment. When setting up the home work environment remember to implement ergonomics basics.
