If you have upper back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain, you may have text neck. Our chiropractor in Livonia can evaluate your spine, neck, and posture to determine if you have text neck and recommend ways to reduce your symptoms and improve your posture.
Text neck is a condition that occurs when you look down for an extended period of time while using your phone, tablet or other hand-held digital devices. Text neck can also develop if you work at a job that required extended periods of looking down. This head down posture can put pressure on your neck muscles, lead to poor posture and cause neck, shoulder and upper back pain.
If you spend many hours a day looking down at your phone, your neck pain is probably being caused by text neck. To help alleviate the symptoms, you should hold your mobile devices at eye level and practice using good posture while sitting and standing.
To help alleviate your symptoms, we recommend taking frequent breaks and standing and stretching your neck. To stretch your neck roll your head toward your shoulder then perform several rotations from your shoulder to your front to the other shoulder and back. Then reverse the movement.
There are chiropractic treatments that can help with your text neck, including helping you improve your posture, making ergonomic recommendations and performing chiropractic adjustments to your upper back and neck. Chiropractic adjustments help with text neck by maximizing the range of motion of your spinal joints and lowering the inflammation in your neck and upper back.
You can schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for your back, neck and shoulder pain by calling us at 734-462-2262.
