Is Chiropractic Care an Effective Neck Pain Treatment for Text Neck?

Written By Thorassic Park on September 16, 2019

Woman with neck painIf you’re reading this on a smartphone, there’s a good chance you’re tilting your head to look down at the screen.

Unless you hold the phone up in front of your face, the weight of your skull can put intense pressure on your cervical spine – up to 60 pounds of pressure!

Chiropractic care is arguably the most effective solution for text neck because it’s the only neck pain treatment that targets the condition at its source.

Why is Chiropractic Effective?

The truth is, there aren’t many treatments available for text/tech neck. Doctors may recommend over-the-counter analgesics, stretches, and possibly even surgery if the condition is bad enough.

Chiropractic care, however, addresses the source of text neck pain. If you look at healthy neck x-rays, you’ll see a subtle curve. With text neck, the spine becomes straight – or even curves in the opposite direction.

Plus, studies show that chiropractic care can reduce neck pain in as little as a few weeks.
