Text Neck

Multicare Health Clinic Discusses Text Neck

Text neck is described as repetitive pain and stress injury that can be attributed to excessive texting or using handheld devices over an extended period of time. Holding your head in this downward position for long creates tension in the deep muscles of your neck and across your shoulders resulting in acute and chronic neck pain. Text neck is prevalent because of the number of hours people spend on their handheld devices. At Multicare Health Clinic at Sioux City, we will offer you a solution with your neck problem.

Causes of Text Neck

Text neck is associated with poor posture when using handheld devices. There is a specific weight that is exerted on the neck muscles by your head if you are in an upright position. But when your head is moved away from the neutral position, there is a dramatic change in its weight and this can impact the muscles of your neck. If this problem is left untreated, there will be a resultant inflammation on your neck ligaments.

How to Prevent Text Neck

Our chiropractors at Multi Care Health Clinic will make an assessment on your neck; they will look at common symptoms associated with text neck. Some of the symptoms they will look at will include upper back pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. Our chiropractors will advise you on things that you can do to prevent text neck like;

  • Ensuring that you take regular breaks from your phone during the day.
  • Putting the handheld device at an eye level all the time.
  • Ensuring that your work screen is set up in such a way that you are always looking forward.
