Tech Neck

Tech neck is not an official diagnosis, but a term commonly used for forward head posture (FHP).  It is a much bigger problem than you might think.  For every inch that your head moves forward out of alignment, you put approximately 10 additional pounds of pressure on your cervical spine.  Over time, this extra pressure can lead to tension headaches and migraines, as well as stress and inflammation in your shoulders, chest, and upper back muscle groups.

Pain is the most obvious symptom that your neck is under too much stress.  Your neck, shoulders, and upper back should not hurt on a regular basis.  PAIN IS NOT NORMAL!  Additional symptoms of tech neck include temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems (pain or dysfunction in the jaw joints and muscles), numbness, tingling or weakness in your hands, and rotator cuff tendonitis.  Long term tech neck can lead to arthritis and degenerative disc disease of the neck.  If you look closely, the poor posture of tech neck is the same posture you will see in any nursing home.


Solution

Chiropractic care provides a healthy solution to this problem by:

  • Providing a doctor that specializes in correcting the spinal misalignments caused by chronic forward head posture (FHP).
  • Relieving the spinal stress created by poor posture. Tech neck is pulling and stretching the spinal cord causing nerve interference and muscle stress.  Chiropractors are the only doctors dedicated to the focus of correcting nerve interference.
