Is Chiropractic an Effective Neck Pain Treatment for Text Neck?

Written By Coastal Integrative Health on August 16, 2019

People slumped over their phone all day aren’t the only ones at risk of developing “text neck.”

If you use a smartphone, read books, or spend time in front of a computer, your spine is at risk for damage from poor posture.

Research shows that tilting your head downwards to look at a book or device can add up to 60 pounds of pressure to your spine and literally warp the bones in your neck.

Chiropractic offers the best neck pain treatment because it’s non-invasive, effective, and solves the problem at its source.

The average head only weighs 10 to 12 pounds but gravity multiplies its weight on your spine when you tilt your head at certain angles.

Hold a 1-pound book close to your chest. Now, extend your arm out while holding the same book – it feels much heavier, right?

When you tilt your head downwards to scroll through Facebook or read Google News articles, this gravitational pull from your head can lead to neck pain from herniated and bulging discs on your cervical spine.

In practical terms, you will eventually suffer from pinched nerves, sharp or dull pain, tension, stiffness, and possibly headaches.

Aside from invasive surgery, chiropractic care is the only solution that identifies text neck at its source and creates a personalized treatment program.
