Text Neck: Don’t Be a Victim!

If you’re like most people these days, your Smartphone or tablet has probably become an integral part of your life. But according to our chiropractor at Witney Chiropractic Clinic, you could be putting your spine at risk by spending too much time hunched over your device.

Text Neck is a modern diagnosis given to patients experiencing back or neck pain as a result of  looking down at a mobile phone, tablet or other device for too long. The condition, which is becoming increasingly common, can also lead to shoulder pain and even certain neurological symptoms.

Our experienced chiropractor explains that while people have always bent their heads down to read or work, many people spend prolonged periods on mobiles and tablets without taking regular breaks. This is what makes the risk of pain or damage that much higher.  It’s crucial that you limit the amount of time you spend on your devices.  It’s very likely that your spine health will suffer if you don’t.
