What is Texting Neck?
Texting the neck is caused by the constant forward hunched position while someone is texting. It can be challenging to feel relief due to the continuous motion of having your neck forward and looking down. This habit can lead you to experience symptoms such as:
- Stiff neck and shoulder area
- Headaches, also known as cervical neuralgia
- Eye pain or eye strain
- Constant neck pain
All these symptoms can make it challenging to get through the day without pain. Yet, our chiropractors can help provide effective treatment for neck pain.
How Can Our Chiropractors Treat Texting Neck?
Our chiropractors will ask you a series of questions and do a physical exam to ensure that the text neck causes your neck pain. They can then provide treatment options to help you feel relief from your pain, including:
- Muscle massages around the neck area
- Neck adjustments to help alleviate compression and realign the spine
- Lifestyle advice helps improve your ergonomics and straighten out your spinal system
Our chiropractors will determine which treatments will be effective and if other chiropractic care is necessary, such as different types of manual adjustments and trigger point therapy. First, however, it will be up to you to improve your texting style to reduce the reoccurrence of texting neck. For example, helping yourself can be as simple as holding your phone at eye level, sitting upright while at your computer, and taking breaks can help.
