What is Tech Neck and How to Avoid It

If you’ve never heard of tech neck, it’s likely that you may have experienced it at some point or another without being aware of its name. As you can probably guess, Tech Neck has to do with problems and pains that occur in the neck area due to the technology devices we use every day, which include our smartphones, our computer screens, and our television screens as well.

Mostly, tech neck gets alleviated by smartphone use, since we all tend to keep our phones at about hip level, craning our heads downward in order to view texts, video, etc.

Doing this every day takes a serious toll on your neck. But there are ways you can counteract the effects of tech neck and restore full mobility in your neck, not to mention get rid of any pain or discomfort you’re experiencing the drug-free way.

First, try to limit your screen time, both when it comes to your phone and your computer/TV screen. Try to look upward whenever possible in order to counteract any lingering tech neck.

Take a yoga class, which will end up increasing your range of motion, not to mention make your neck and surrounding areas feel great.

Lastly, chiropractic treatment is also a great way to counteract tech neck. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how our treatments help get the very best out of our patients.
