Common Questions About Text Neck Answered by our Tacoma Chiropractor

If you use your phone frequently throughout the day, you can develop what is known as text neck. This condition occurs when you have neck pain from the way you hold your head and neck while texting, playing games or browsing the internet on your phone. Find out more about text neck with answers to these frequently asked questions provided by Bakke Chiropractic Clinic in Tacoma.

What Causes Text Neck?

You can get text neck when you have poor posture while you sit or stand and use your phone. If you tend to lean forward with your shoulders hunched, this puts more strain on your neck muscles and the spinal discs in the upper part of your spine, leading to pain and stiffness. 

What Can I Do to Relieve Pain from Text Neck?

You can ease tension in your neck muscles by doing chest stretches. This involves standing straight, keeping your arms at your sides and slowly turning your forearms so that they face behind you. Stretching your fingers can also help ease tension in your hands.

How Can I Prevent Text Neck?

There are certain things that can reduce your risk of text neck. Sitting up straight and holding your shoulders back while using your phone can help. You should also hold your phone in front of your eyes rather than looking down at the screen. Tucking in your chin instead of tilting your whole head down can also help. 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Text Neck?

Chiropractic care helps relieve text neck by correcting misalignments that have developed in your upper spine. Straightening your spine helps eases pressure on muscles and nerves in your upper back and neck, which should provide you with relief. Stretches are another part of chiropractic care that can help text neck symptoms and reduce your risk of having them come back.
