What A Chiropractor Can Do for Text Neck Syndrome
Text Neck Syndrome is the phrase a chiropractor uses to refer to what is technically called Anterior Head Syndrome. It has to do with where your head is positioned in relation to your shoulders. This is a condition that is often diagnosed in people who spend a significant amount of time looking at a computer screen, tablet, or mobile device. At Walker Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Miramar, FL, we are familiar with this condition. We have successfully treated many of our patients for this condition and others using chiropractic care.
How to Spot Text Neck Syndrome
How you go about your day has a lot to do with where you may experience the pain. The symptoms of this condition include experiencing pain in your shoulders, neck, and the top portion of your back. Frequent headaches can also be a sign that you are suffering from this condition. Text neck may lead to conditional pain such as pain any time you flex your neck. The pain can make it more difficult to move around and interfere with your daily activities.
There are steps that you can take during your day that will help prevent pain. One of them is to change the way you sit while you are engaged in the activities that cause pain. An easy way to avoid slumping forward is to place soft material on the chair while you are sitting on it. The material should support the lower part of your back. You can also avoid pain by not sitting at a desk all day. Using a standing workstation prevents you from spending your days putting unnecessary stress on your body.
