Text Neck – creating poor posture, back problems, headaches, neck pain & muscle tension

Text Neck – creating poor posture, back problems, headaches, neck pain & muscle tension

Spending hours each day with our heads bent down at our mobile devices is putting excess pressure on the spine and puts us at risk for poor posture, back problems, headaches, neck pain and muscle tension.

Your head weighs about 10 pounds, but by tilting your head forward by just 15 degrees it puts over 25 pounds of pressure on your spine.  While bending down to look at mobile devices, most are tilting their head from 15 – 60 degrees putting up to 60 pounds of pressure on the spine!  Text Neck is causing poor posture, back problems, headaches, neck pain and muscle tension.

Our Body Stress Assessment screening can help!  This unique health screening is designed to help people recognize how postural stress may be affecting their health and overall stress burden.  We will identify physical and postural imbalances that may be contributing to various health symptoms and complaints such as headaches, neck and back pain, and muscle tension.  This intriguing screening analyzes a person’s posture and measures the degree of physical stress that one’s posture is placing on the body.
