Text Neck: What is it and How to Treat it

Text neck is a term used to describe the pain, stiffness and poor range of motion caused by staring down at a hand-held device over a long period of time. The condition takes time to develop, and often gets worse with excessive use of devices. At Maryland Farms Chiropractic in Brentwood, we provide treatment for text neck that helps you recover from your pain without the use of prescription medication.

Poor Posture and Your Neck Pain

Staring downwards at a hand-held device is not a natural position. With so many people relying on cell phones and tablets to communicate, text neck has developed as a chronic condition seen by many chiropractors. Poor posture while looking down at a device causes strain on your muscles, ligaments and tendons. Signs of text neck include headaches, a stiff neck, and trouble turning your head from side to side.

Treatment for Text Neck

There are a number of ways our chiropractor can help you if you are suffering from text neck. Treatment may include cervical spine manipulations, ultrasound to improve blood flow, hot or cold therapy, and other manual strategies. As you progress in treatment, you will learn exercises to strengthen your neck and improve your overall posture. Our chiropractor can help ease the strain in your neck and improve your head and neck area’s range of motion. Strengthening your neck and upper back will also reduce the likelihood of you experiencing text neck again in the future.
