Text Neck

Most of us use our smartphones as a primary form of communication, however, constantly looking down at digital devices can strain your neck and cause persistent pain. At Klump Chiropractic Center in Pittsburgh, PA, we provide a variety of chiropractic treatments to relieve any discomfort due to text neck and improve your health. Before you visit us, learn more bout the symptoms of text neck below:


What is Text Neck?

Text neck is commonly caused by overusing the neck muscles from looking down at a device. While the condition is typically related to cell phone use, it can also occur when utilizing a laptop or tablet excessively. If you are experiencing discomfort in your neck, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible since text neck can lead to chronic pain and conditions like herniated discs.

Symptoms of Text Neck

The symptoms of text neck can vary from person to person and may depend on how much time is spent looking at a device each day. You may experience neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, and headaches. Some people might notice that their symptoms become worse over time, while others find that their symptoms seem to come and go. 

Chiropractic Care for Text Neck Treatment

Chiropractic care help provide pain relief from text neck. During your initial consultation, we will speak with you about your symptoms and a potential treatment plan. Your treatment plan will be designed for your specific needs and may include spinal manipulation, chiropractic adjustment, and stretching. 

Our chiropractor may also recommend that you change the way you use your mobile device. Switching to a computer messaging app or using the voice message feature on your phone allows you to communicate with the same efficiency while reducing neck strain. During each chiropractic appointment, our team will talk with you about your progress to ensure that you are healing properly.
