Do you have that tight, uncomfortable strain in your neck? Is it causing you to struggle at work or to even sleep at night? How you hold your phone as you text might be the perpetrator. Statistics show that about 82% of adults have cell phones and about a quarter of them experience neck pain.
What causes "Text Neck"?
Any pain or tension related to the neck is often caused by poor posture. Throughout the day, whether people are in class, sitting at a desk, or standing, if they're texting they're probably hunched over with their head extended. This causes the muscles to become tense, causing strain. The tension then leads to the stiffness and aches in the neck.
What can I do?
You can try to maintain correct posture by sitting straight with your eyes looking ahead as you text. Or you can visit a chiropractor.
What can the Stewart Clinic do for me?
