“Text Neck” – How Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Can Help Solve This Modern Epidemic
“Text neck,” or the slumped over shoulder and neck position often seen when texting on a cell phone, has become an epidemic with the rise of technology use.
Top Five “Text Neck” Signs and Symptoms
Slumping over your phone to text or your computer keyboard to type can cause pain and stiffness, also known as “text neck.” Knowing the signs and symptoms of poor posture can be a helpful way of learning better posture practices no matter your technology use.
- Neck and Shoulder Discomfort
A stiff, tight, or nagging pain in the neck and shoulders is caused by leaning forward and down posture commonly implemented while texting.
- Muscle Imbalance and Stiffness
Straining the muscles around the neck, upper back, and shoulders can leave them tight, reducing your upper body’s mobility.
- Back Pain and Tension
The upper back tends to hold tension and can bring on pain from the lack of standing straight and chest forward.
- Hunched Over Posture
The hunched and bent forward posture has become wildly known due to the use of technology. This poor posture can misalign your spine and cause chronic pain.
Cervicogenic headaches, or neck headaches, are caused by joints in the neck that are misaligned. These headaches are commonly felt at the top of the neck and back of the head.
