Text Neck: What It Is and How Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Can Help

Written By Duluth Chiropractic and Wellness Center on November 4, 2020

Text NeckText neck is a painful phenomenon that millions of people are dealing with right now. 

People are so attached to their phones, laptops, and tablets that they spend most of their day staring down at them. The result: sore neck and shoulder muscles and even headaches. 

Fortunately, you don’t need to suffer. With a few lifestyle tweaks and chiropractic neck pain treatment from your Duluth, GA chiropractor you’ll feel better than ever. 

Get Relief with Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment

Texting and scrolling through social media might not seem like a big deal – until you take your anatomy into account

The average head weighs between 10-12 pounds. Your neck is well-equipped to carry that weight if you’re in proper alignment, which is definitely not the case when you’re constantly on your phone. 

Looking down at your electronic devices pulls the muscles of the head, neck, and shoulders forward, causing them to strain as they hold the weight of your head. 

Symptoms of text neck include

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Neck muscle spasms
  • Sore neck and shoulder muscles
  • Tingling in the hands or arms
  • Slipped discs
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Reduced mobility 

How Your Duluth, GA Chiropractor Can Help

Drs. Steven Sommer and Mayan Orgel use the latest technology to help relieve their patients’ pain. Included in your neck pain treatment plan will be: 

  • Spinal Adjustments: Spinal misalignment can lead to more pain and muscle tension. Adjustments restore proper alignment quickly, easily, and painlessly. 
  • Massage Therapy: Sometimes your muscles need some extra help to let go of tension. A massage therapist uses various techniques to reduce tension and pain. 
  • Cold Laser Therapy: A low-light laser can penetrate soft tissue and heal it at a cellular level. 

Lifestyle Changes That Can Reduce Your Pain

In addition to getting chiropractic neck pain treatment, it might be time to evaluate your lifestyle. We’re not saying give up texting or social media. However, some adjustments can help lower your pain. 

When you’re at work, raise your computer monitor so you’re not constantly looking down at it. If you’re on your phone or tablet, take periodic breaks and stretch your neck, shoulders, and arms.

Little adjustments can make a big difference in how you feel.
