How to Treat and Prevent Text Neck

If you are currently dealing with discomfort or neck pain that you believe is caused by phone usage, contacting our chiropractor in Downtown Vancouver is an option that may yield positive results regarding treatment. Contact Kilian Chiropractic in Vancouver to make an appointment with our chiropractor for appropriate text neck treatment. Here is some information on text neck and how chiropractic care can help if you are experiencing symptoms of this condition.

What Text Neck Is

If you have “text neck”, you are experiencing pain in the back of your neck as a result of looking down at a cell phone frequently. Those who work with laptops, tablets, or constantly reading or doing paperwork, may also experience this condition. Text neck usually has neck pain that radiates from the base of the neck upward. It may feel like a sharp shooting pain when you turn your neck or it could be a dull pain that does not subside until neck pain treatment is obtained.

Avoiding Neck Pain with Electronic Device Usage

It is best to refrain from using a cell phone or similar device too often so neck pain is not experienced. Use a holder to keep a device at eye level or set a timer indicating when it is time to stop looking at a device so the body is protected.

How Our Chiropractor Can Help Relieve Neck Pain

If you are dealing with neck pain, our chiropractor will first conduct an assessment of your symptoms to determine if they are indeed caused by overuse of an electronic device. In most cases, spinal adjustments will instantly relieve discomfort. The joints in the neck region are likely to be dealing with stress upon them from the constant weight of the head pulling the muscles and ligaments in an awkward manner. Temperature therapy can also reduce discomfort tremendously.
