Is Your Neck Pain Caused by Text Neck?

Written By Harrison Chiropractic and Wellness on February 14, 2018

If you've been suffering from neck pain, you're not alone. 

Neck pain treatment is needed more these days because you spend more time hunched over computers and smartphones than in the past. 

Chiropractic care is the ideal treatment for cases of text neck, which is neck pain that you get after looking down at your technology devices for too long.

Why You Need Neck Pain Treatment

Text neck is doing more to you than just giving you a pain in the neck. It can be a major contributor to headaches. You might also be exhibiting behaviors of poor posture, and bad posture can compromise nerve roots that exit from the spinal bones which can lead to many other health issues, in addition to the neck pain you are experiencing.

Some of the other issues that will come along with your neck pain include:

  • Depression- Slouching and poor posture lead to more feelings of depression. 
  • Digestive Problems- Poor posture leads to a backup in your digestive system which can cause gas and constipation.
  • Poor Circulation- When you're not sitting up straight, you are making it harder for your body to complete all of its functions, including moving blood and oxygen through your system.
  • Stress- Slouching increases the cortisol your body secretes, which is the stress hormone.

How Chiropractic Care Helps

If you want to avoid the symptoms of text neck, you can get your neck pain treatment in Taylorsville with a fourth generation chiropractor that uses a non-invasive approach to help you get your good posture back.  

Dr. Harrison will do an in depth exam and x-rays to determine the extent of injury. Once you are diagnosed, you will be put on a appropriate treatment plan for your condition. You'll also want to focus on improving your posture on your own time.

Chiropractic care puts your musculoskeletal structure into proper alignment. When your spine is aligned, it helps your body heal itself naturally.
