Chiropractic Care for Tech Neck Pain

By Donna Stark

Have you been experiencing more pain and discomfort in your upper back and neck over the past few years than ever before? Are you noticing there isn't a day that goes by without the need to rub your sore neck and shoulders? It used to be that you would only ever feel discomfort if you had a bad night of sleep, but now that pain and stiffness is an everyday occurrence! What in the world is going on? Well, more than likely you are struggling with something that millions of others are struggling with too. It's tech neck, and fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help!

What Is Tech Neck?

The answer is simple. Tech neck is the pain and discomfort you feel after constantly leaning your head forward and straining your neck while using your electronic devices. Now, it may be hard to understand how that position can be so damaging at first, but keep this in mind ... your head weighs between 10 and 12 pounds. So, for every degree your head moves forward, the stress and tension on your body increase significantly. That 10 pounds can suddenly double or even triple its weight!

Steps to Take

Now that you understand what tech neck is, are you wondering what you can do to stop the pain and damage? Here are some helpful tips to follow from your chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

  • Put your electronic devices away and take more frequent breaks from them throughout the day
  • Start holding your technology at eye level so you aren't forced to look down all the time
  • Pay attention to your posture and make corrections as soon as your body slips into bad positions
  • Stretch those muscles every day to ease pain and reduce the risk of future discomfort
  • Get adjusted by your trusted chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic

Chiropractic Care for Tech Neck

By placing your spine in proper alignment, your local chiropractor can help you achieve less pain and stress in the body. Proper alignment encourages optimal function of the muscles, joints, and circulatory system in the body. Routine chiropractic care also eases tension, corrects joint dysfunction, soothes irritated nerves, and increases blood flow (which helps to speed the healing process).

Say Goodbye to Neck and Upper Back Pain

Do yourself and your family members a favor! Stay a step ahead of the pain and discomfort caused by tech neck by following the suggestions above and seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic regularly. After all, you only have one neck, so protect it at all costs!
