“Text neck” is a condition that occurs from looking down at your phone or other electronic device for extended periods of time. The condition can cause pain in the neck and shoulders, and may even lead to headaches. Sometimes “text neck” can also occur from sitting at your computer desk for long periods of time without breaks. As the back muscles get tired the posture starts changing leading to what we call “text neck.”
Chiropractic care can help to treat text neck by realigning the spine and relieving pressure on the nerves. Chiropractors may also recommend exercises and stretches to help improve the range of motion in the neck.
