Do you have “Text Neck”? The signs include neck pain & headaches. Shoulder and upper back pain are common complaints, too. Many people, especially those in the millennial generation, spend 5 hours or more a day texting or surfing the internet on their phones or tablets. While using these tech devices, the neck is bent with the head forward. Did you know that the head is heavy and actually weighs an average of 10 to 11 pounds? In addition, for each inch it is in a forward position, your neck and upper spine experience that weight as doubled! The result is pain caused by compression of the vertebrae in the neck and tension of the muscles in the neck and upper back. Patients in my office find that acupuncture for neck pain is very effective - and I can help you modify your posture while you use your devices. If you are in pain try acupuncture for a natural solution!
