Is Your Smart Phone Causing Your Neck Pain?

Text Neck Pain Treatment

Browsing social media, answering texts, playing games, and catching up on your favorite shows on the go – we spend a lot of time on our phones. Unfortunately, these super convenient devices can encourage bad posture and cause some pretty painful neck problems, also known as text neck or tech next.

If your neck is feeling more stiff and sore these days, the team at Glacier Chiropractic wants to help you figure out whether smartphone use could be the culprit behind your aches and pains.

What Is Text Neck?

Text neck is a painful condition that results from staring down or remaining hunched over for extended periods – the position we use when working or playing on most smart devices. The average head weighs about ten pounds. As you look down at your screen, supporting this added weight can stress your cervical spine. Every inch you tilt your head down potentially doubles this stress on your spine.
