Advances in technology have set us ahead and made some tasks much simpler. However, some of these modern-day advances are bringing about new-age health concerns. ‘Text neck,’ is one of the fastest developing health concerns that occurs when chronic stress exists around the neck area. As more Americans continue to rely on devices like smart phones or lap top computers, it’s important to take preventative measures that help you avoid experiencing neck pain.
Who’s At Risk?
Young children are most affected by this condition and this is troubling as their bodies are still developing. To combat this condition, chiropractic care is recommended to remedy the stress endured to the neck.
Although it may not seem like much, tilting the head even 15 degrees can add almost 30 pounds of weight onto the neck gravely affecting the spine. If this action is repeated continuously, pain in the neck, shoulders and upper back could arise as well as the development of headaches. If these symptoms are left untreated, strains and overuse syndromes could develop.
A Healthy Posture Can Help Prevent Pain and Discomfort
Posture plays a vital role in your health and this new age condition can have a drastic impact on your health. If you experience neck pain, accompanied by radiating pain into the shoulders and arms as well as muscle weakness and tension headaches, you may be suffering from text neck. Consulting with a chiropractor can help to rectify this condition as well as manage the symptoms associated with the condition.
