Chiropractic Care at Our Hull Chiropractic Provides Relief From Text Neck

The average human head weighs 12 pounds, which is all supported by the neck. In order to prevent the neck from being overstressed, you have to use proper posture. People who are constantly looking down at a cell phone run the risk of suffering from text neck. Hull Chiropractic in Indianapolis, IN can help to address this painful condition.

Causes of Text Neck

While it is called text neck, this condition is caused by looking down with the head bent over. Looking down to read constantly instead of holding the book at eye height, looking down at a computer, and looking down at your cellphone are all possible causes. The rate of this condition occurring has become more prevalent since people are using cell phones more.

Preventing Text Neck is Possible

You can prevent text neck by doing activities, including looking at your phone, with your head straight instead of bent over. By keeping your head straight, you are taking the strain off the seven vertebrae in the neck and allowing all structures in the neck to support the head. Limiting the use of your cell phone and other activities that require you to drop your head can also be beneficial.

Stretching Can Help Relieve Text Neck

Doing a chest stretch can help to relieve text neck. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Stand up straight with your back facing a wall.
  • Place your arms by your sides.
  • Turn your forearms a bit so your thumbs point toward the wall that is behind you.
