Text Neck And Chiropractic Care

Text neck is a condition that causes pain in the upper back and neck due to texting. The epidemic of text neck is on the rise because so many people, especially children, use mobile phones, laptops, and video games.

This condition is characterised by many symptoms, including neck and back discomfort, shoulder tightness, stiffness, and headaches.

Text Neck is a chronic injury to the spine that causes postural abnormalities such as forward head carriage and rounded shoulders. It may put you at risk for disc problems, neuropathic pain, and nerve problems.

Text neck is a significant issue, but it can be easily addressed by starting with a chiropractic consultation.

This article discusses what symptoms of text neck are, how chiropractic may help with text neck and preventive measures for text neck.

Symptoms of Text Neck

Symptoms of Text Neck

Text neck comes with several symptoms.

  • Upper back pain can range from a burning pain to severe muscular spasms in the upper back.
  • Shoulder stiffness and soreness could lead to a severe shoulder muscle spasm.
  • Some patients have complained of shoulder pain or tightness, while others have reported shooting pains down their arms.
  • Text neck may lead to chronic difficulties, such as the early onset of arthritis.
  • When the condition worsens, severe muscle spasms and nagging pains are common.

Preventing Measures for Text Neck

Keep Good Posture

Make an effort to maintain proper posture. Chin up, looking forward, with shoulders back and a straight spine, standing upright.

Keep Devices at Eye Level

Using a monitor stand, raise your monitor to eye level. Invest in a transitional or standing desk instead.


Stretching is a simple and effective practice that you may do at any day. This stretch is excellent for preventing a text neck.

Sit in a Chair With a Headrest

Sit in a chair with a headrest if possible. While sitting, the back of your head should be in touch with the headrest.

Set Time Limits and Reminders

Try to spread them out rather than waiting until the end of the day to do all of your digital responsibilities. Set reminders on your smartphone or smartwatch to help you remain on track.
