Have you ever experienced headaches or pain in your neck, arms, or shoulders as a result of prolonged smartphone use?
Strain injuries in the neck, forearm, wrist and hand as a result of digital devices have recently been on the rise, and are commonly referred to as Text Neck.
Refraining from holding your smartphone or tablet for extended periods of time and looking straight ahead when viewing your device will help to reduce the amount of strain placed on your neck, back, and shoulders.
How can my chiropractor help with my neck pain?
Treatment may include soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, joint mobilizations and manipulation, which can all be used to help decrease pain and increase range of motion. Specific stretches and rehabilitation exercises will improve strength and assist in preventing painful recurrences.
