Symptoms of Text Neck

Text neck can often lead to pain in your shoulder, upper back, and neck. This pain might be a dull ache or more of a stabbing pain, especially when you move around. Over time, you can also develop rounded shoulders and a forward head posture due to leaning down while on your phone or tablet. Additionally, text neck can cause reduced mobility in your neck and shoulders.

Causes of Text Neck

Why does text neck happen? When you use a digital device, you lean your head down to see the screen. This puts additional pressure and weight on your neck and upper spine. Looking down while utilizing your mobile device from time to time may not causes issues. However, it can lead to severe pain when you spend prolonged periods of time on your phone or tablet.

Chiropractic Care for Text Neck

Text neck can cause considerable discomfort, but chiropractic care can help. At Winter Haven Wellness Center, we offer a variety of chiropractic adjustments and /or spinal decompression to take pressure off of your upper spine. This technique helps align your spine and correct any misalignments that may have occurred due to text neck. We also offer massage therapy, which can relieve muscle tension and inflammation in your neck and upper back.

How to Prevent Text Neck

Holding your smartphone at eye level can help reduce the risk of text neck. Not only that, but limiting device use can also be beneficial. In addition, we can teach you exercises and stretches that can alleviate your pain and make your neck muscles stronger.
