Common Questions About Text Neck

Text neck is a condition that develops with frequent use of handheld devices, including tablets and phones. Text neck is one of the most common conditions affecting the neck. A chiropractor can easily identify the cause of this problem. Our chiropractors at Back In Motion Chiropractic provide chiropractic care in Beaverton, OR. If you suspect you are being affected by text neck, it is time to schedule a consultation.

What Are the Symptoms of Text Neck?

The symptoms of text neck include neck pain, soreness, and stiffness. Your pain may be dull or sharp, and you may feel it in one specific area or all over the neck and shoulders.

What Causes Text Neck?

Text neck is caused by looking down at a phone or another device. When your head tilts forward, gravity pulls on your neck. You will feel some pressure on your spine, which now has more weight added to it.

How Can You Avoid Text Neck?

Prevention is easier than treating text neck. You can prevent the condition from worsening by avoiding excessive phone use. When you use your phone, avoid staying in the same position for long periods. You should change positions frequently to allow your body to hold the weight safely.

What Exercises Can You Use to Treat Text Neck?

Our chiropractor may recommend that you take some steps to treat your text neck. For example, we may recommend that you try head rolls and head twists regularly to relieve your pain. We will also do more than provide recommendations for corrective exercises. We often recommend massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment, and physical therapy to help you see a real difference in your comfort level. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results.
