Do you suffer from Text Neck?

As we all become more dependent on hand-held electronics such as cell phones, iPads and laptops, we are starting to see more and more injuries in the neck, shoulders and arms in chiropractic offices.  It isn’t the devices that are hurting us, but instead the posture and ergonomics that cause us to overuse the muscles along the back of our neck and into our shoulder blades as well as the muscles across the front of our chest.

One of my colleagues, Dr. Amy Gabrowski, produced a short video on You Tube that describes some of the common posture pitfalls along with a few stretches to help you stay loose as you text.    If you continue to have pain for more than two weeks after making these posture changes and stretching, please call our office.  You might need some hands-on care to get you back to 100%!
