The Painful Side Effect to Gifting Gadgets this Holiday Season
Text neck, a condition in which the continual use of technology causes neck pain and discomfort, can cause serious health risks. It happens most often when you bend over to read text message, browse the internet or gaze at video game screens and controllers. And with the large amount of technology and gadgets gifted over the holiday season, cases of text neck will be rampant.
Symptoms of text neck can include:
The severity of these symptoms will vary from person to person, but tend to be more prominent with an increased level of activity on the phone or device used.
There are solutions for this type of pain. Of course, curbing technology use might be the most obvious one, but if you can’t pry the controller from your child’s hands this winter break, there are other options, as well, including neck stretches and a routine visit to the chiropractor.
Since text neck often causes actual misalignment of the spine, chiropractic care can help. A chiropractor can use spinal manipulation to properly align the spine and keep it healthier and pain free. And at The Joint Chiropractic, we are able to treat children, as well as adults, so aligning the spine of the child who is never without his phone is no problem.
The Joint Chiropractic has experts available to speak to media in-studio or on location at a clinic about the dangers of text neck. Contact
