How Can Chiropractic Treatment & Therapy Help Text Neck?

Written By Reyna Chiropractic Clinic on March 19, 2018

Chronic neck pain? Who DOESN’T experience it today? 

Since the age of the smartphone, that number is dwindling. Millions of people around the world are spending hours each day staring at their phone, and this behavior is taking a toll on neck health. In fact, this condition has become so familiar that it’s now named ‘text neck,’ and it’s quickly becoming a bane of modern existence. 

If you hate how your phone makes your neck feel but aren’t quite ready to toss it in the trash, finding a middle way is essential for your neck health. This article will go through neck pain treatment solutions to help you keep text neck under control. 

What is Text Neck?

As a condition caused by tilting your head downwards for hours each day, text neck has surged in prevalence in the past decade. Necks aren’t designed to support so much weight each day, and merely tilting your head down a few degrees can exponentially increase the amount of pressure put on it. 

While reading a book can give you the same symptoms, the popularity of squinting down at small screens is the leading cause of most chronic neck pain today. In fact, a recent study shows that close to 90 percent of American adults keep a cellphone within reach at all times, meaning that the temptation to slouch over a screen is always strong. 

At-Home Suggestions to Eliminate Text Neck

Small changes in your daily life can make a profound difference in the ways that text neck impacts you. 

At Reyna Chiropractic Clinic, we recommend keeping your cell phone screen at eye level as much as possible, monitoring your posture to ensure you sit upright, and taking technology breaks throughout the day to stretch instead. 

These behaviors might seem small, but together they will give your neck the break it needs to prevent text neck from taking over your productivity.
