How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help “Text Neck”?
Suffering from neck pain? Searching for a drug-free neck pain treatment?
If you are like pretty much everyone else in the United States right now, you probably spend way too much time looking down on your mobile phone or tablet. You may have the dreaded “text neck.”
What Exactly Is “Text Neck”?
“Text neck” is what happens to people who spend too much time with their head bent down and forward to text message and use digital devices.
The head itself is heavy, about ten to twelve pounds, like a bowling ball sitting on top of the neck. Looking down a lot puts a strain on the muscles of the neck, shoulders, and upper back - causing neck pain as well as tension headaches.
Here are some symptoms of “text neck”:
- Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Neurological Symptoms
- Chronic Headaches
- Arthritis in the Neck
How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Neck Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care can help with neck pain treatment in the following ways:
1. Reduce Strain on Neck and Back Muscles
Spinal manipulations can help alleviate stressed out neck and back muscles, reducing tension - and thus pain.
2. Improve Range of Motion in the Neck
Chiropractic care can help improve the range of motion in the neck, which can greatly reduce neck tension and help to rewire poor movement patterns caused by too much texting, or poor posture in general.
3. Fix Poor Posture
The head forward, rounded shoulders posture that is often found in “text neck” can also cause serious back pain and headaches, in addition to neck pain.
Chiropractic care can help improve this bad postural habit, resolving not only neck pain but other chronic aches in the body.
4. Heal Pinched Nerves
Problems with the wrist, often attributed to carpal tunnel syndrome, can actually be due to pinched nerves in the neck and shoulders caused by chronic poor posture.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to support the nervous system and free up pinched nerves causing pain, numbness, and other issues.
