See Your San Diego Chiropractor for “Tech Neck” Pain Relief Treatment

Tech neck, also called text neck, anterior head syndrome and Janda’s upper cross syndrome is truly a 21st century overuse injury-and nearly everybody you see is at risk! Just walking the streets of San Diego, you see just about everybody craning their head down to stare at their mobile device all the time. Even kids, whose necks are particularly sensitive to posture issues-spend an average of 90 minutes with their heads hanging down. The physics of this poor posture habit turns the average 10-pound head into a 60-pound weight pulling down on neck vertebrae, pinching nerves, over-extending ligaments, tendons and all of the muscles in the neck, shoulders and upper back. If you have symptoms like shoulder, upper back and neck pain or persistent headaches and migraines, see Chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl for pain relief treatment and ergonomic training.
