Neck Pain

Chiropractic for Neck Pain in Mt Gravatt

woman working with neck painWith the increase in hand-held technology in our lives, and hours more of our time spent in front of screens, our necks are taking the brunt of this physical stress on our bodies. Known commonly as “tech neck,” it’s causing us pain, throwing our muscles out of whack and causing disruptions to our nervous systems.

The result is literal pain in your neck, seemingly impossible to navigate in your daily life.

The Causes of Neck Pain

When someone is looking at a mobile device, or sitting and working at a computer, their head comes forward and in front of the rest of their body. The muscles in the back of the neck are getting stretched in this position, while the muscles in the front are being contracted.

This, in turn, places uneven pressure on the spine.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

Dr. Bank (Chiropractor) will begin by observing your neck rotation to see where there may be issues. During your exam he’ll check your full range of motion, which will address a few different areas. He’ll look at your spinal health, your muscular balance and the muscles’ ability to turn the head one way or the other, as well as your lymphatic system.

If these systems aren’t working efficiently, your neck rotation will be affected.

Be Aware of ‘Tech Neck’

Something we need to pay special attention to in today’s digital age is our use of technology and how this impacts our neck. Not only do we need to be mindful of how much time we’re in a sitting position, but also how often we have devices in our hands, on our laps or on our desks. This can cause imbalances in our spines.

If your little ones or teens are having neck pain as a result of our current reliance on technology, chances are good they should be seen by Dr. Bank as well.

How Chiropractic Can Help Your Family

During your visit with Dr. Bank, he’ll ensure your soft tissue has proper tension, your muscles are strong, and the spine is moving. Once that happens, the healing starts.

Call our office today to schedule an appointment to learn how you and your family may overcome the problems our tech use can cause. Get care today!
