--How to help prevent Tech Neck and pain from prolonged computer usage--

Many people today suffer from bad posture, and there are ways to improve it. One way is to stop using the computer for 10+ hours a day, or repetitive texting on our smart phones. For most, that is not an option. The other recommendation is ergonomic workplace stations, chiropractic care and exercises to improve your cervical lordosis, or your posture of your neck and shoulders. By improving the neck and back posture with chiropractic care and exercises, it will take that additional pressure off of your curve in your neck, called the cervical lordotic curve. Many people are getting migraines or headaches from prolonged computer work, and out chiropractor can help place you on a treatment plan to improve these painful cervicogenic headaches.

What can you do to help prevent Tech Neck and how can a Doctor of Chiropractic help?

Improving your posture and helping keep your spine in proper alignment will allow you to be able to sit longer with less pain and spasm. Computer work puts a lot of stress on the neck and shoulders, and can lead to painful conditions like tech neck, whiplash, or Upper Crossed Syndrome. Anything that you can do to alleviate the pain and spasm will be helpful. Alternative healthcare options like chiropractic care and therapeutic exercise are a healthy way to approach this common problem. We recommend improved posture for anyone who uses the computer regularly, so that you are not developing bad habits which could cause pain in the future. Many people today are working from home more than before, and are looking for ways to improve their neck and shoulder pain with proper ergonomics and chiropractic care. 

By doing so, you can help not only alleviate spasm and pain, but also help to prevent degenerative changes to your back and spine. Chiropractic care is helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of prolonged computer related injuries, so if your job requires being at the computer for 8 hours or more a day, you should consult our Doctor of Chiropractic for an ergonomic evaluation.
