More and more Americans spend most of their work time and free time on screens, resulting in poor posture and neck pain. We consider neck pain common, but that doesn’t mean it’s normal. You may experience the following symptoms:
Although screen time is a common reason for neck pain, there are other reasons for neck pain too, including:
Our chiropractors will perform an assessment of your neck’s condition, looking at the curve and any signs of disc degeneration. In a body that is healthy and has good posture, there is a slight curve in the neck that positions your head centered above the shoulders. This position is important; it distributes your head’s weight evenly so there is an equal amount of pressure on each of the discs in your spine.
Structural issues in the spine, including poor posture, can cause the head to be moved slightly forward from the ideal position. This creates more pressure on the discs, causing neck pain, headaches, and upper back pain.
Spinal manipulation can resolve neck pain and other symptoms associated with improper head position. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we will work with you to improve your posture and strengthen the upper spine for long-term relief from neck pain.
