Carol Stream, IL Chiropractor can correct TEXT NECK! This debilitating condition is causing kids and adults to experience neck pain, headaches, and muscle spasms. Mayo Clinic has found that in the long term, text neck can lead to disc herniation as well as early spinal degeneration.
As for the muscles in your upper back and neck are concerned, for every inch your head moves forwards, the head gains 10 pounds in weight. With the added weight of the head, all the muscles in the upper back and shoulders have to work so much harder to keep the head (chin) from dropping onto your chest. This also forces the muscles in the neck to stay constantly contracted and in turn can begin to irritate the spinal nerves. This nerve irritation may cause headaches at the base of the skull, neck pain and mid-back pain.
The only way to find out how much unneeded stress your body is carrying is by a structural chiropractic examination. We have state-of-the-art equipment to determine if you or your children are suffering from text neck. Consultations in our Carol Stream office are always complimentary and Dr. Doug and our team at NorthCoast Wellness Center are dedicated to your health!
