Could Texting Cause Back Pain?

texting leading to back pain

Modern technologies revolutionized society but also brought all kinds of health problems. Whether it is sitting in front of a computer, texting, or watching television, our posture is being impacted. “Text neck” is now a modern condition. It is due to putting stress on your spine when you are in a curled neck position. This is a concern for not only adults but children who are the first of this generation using cell phones at a young age.

How Texting Causes Back Pain

When you text, your neck goes to approximately a 15-degree angle. This places at least 27 pounds of weight and force on your neck. Your spinal discs, joints, and ligaments begin to suffer as they hold this position throughout the day. If you feel “text neck”, it is important to visit a chiropractor. Ignoring the issue can lead to intense pain in your shoulders, upper and mid back, and neck.

To prevent spinal stress from texting, lift your phone to eye level. This will help keep your chin up, maintaining proper posture.

You shouldn’t live your life in pain. Doctor Funk Chiropractic in Roseville, California can treat back pain due to texting. Contact our chiropractic office today to start your journey to better health.
