You love the technology you carry around with you that keeps you connected to the world. But if you spend a lot of time looking down at your phone, tablet, or computer, you run the risk of developing Tech Neck Syndrome. Back on Track Chiropractic helps patients in Birmingham AL, as well as Hoover, Mountain Brook, and Homewood, break free from the pain of Tech Neck Syndrome.
How Does Tech Neck Syndrome Develop?
The human head is designed to sit upright on the spine. Slumping over to see a screen throws off the alignment of the body. As the head moves closer and closer to the chest, it becomes very heavy and harder for the neck, shoulders, and back to support it. Peering toward your waist causes the neck muscles to shorten and tighten. The shoulders also become more rounded. The misalignment can lead to pain radiating from the neck, down through the shoulders, and into the back.
How We Treat Tech Neck Pain
Back on Track Chiropractic treats Tech Neck Syndrome pain by returning the body to its proper alignment through spinal correction.

Back on Track Chiropractic also offers massage therapy to correct musculoskeletal issues brought on by technology use.

We may also offer some guidance about the way you view your devices. We believe lifestyle changes can go a long way toward treating your health challenges. At Back on Track Chiropractic, we practice natural therapies that are better for treating Tech Neck Syndrome than accepting a prescription for a painkiller.
