Marcum Chiropractic Clinic is Portland’s premier chiropractic and health care center. The clinic is run by Dr. Todd Hartwig, who specializes in car accident injuries, trauma, and sports medicine.
The clinic has recently highlighted the dangers of using mobile devices and the effects they are having on people’s posture. Dr. Hartwig calls the effects of mobile device use “an epidemic.”
The clinic explains that frequent use of mobile devices harms posture as a result of always being hunched over, head down looking at a screen. Other related health issues due to mobile use include stress on the neck, a strain on the back, headaches, and jaw pain.
Overuse of mobile devices can go beyond these health issues and cause a condition now being referred to as “text neck.”
“Text neck” manifests itself with several symptoms and signs. These include immediate upper back or neck pain when using a mobile device, constant or searing pain in the neck and shoulders at days end, overall shoulder pain, and muscle tightness and headaches, which get worse when using a mobile device.
The report states it is never too late to reverse these symptoms. A good start is for a person suffering from these problems to hold their device in front of them so they are looking straight ahead and keeping their neck and spine in the correct alignment.
A series of stretching exercises can help to alleviate symptoms, as can a visit to a chiropractor. A chiropractor, such as those at Marcum Chiropractic Clinic, can help to relieve muscle tightness and to ease a patient’s neck and spine back into alignment.
