Cell phones may be found almost anywhere. People engrossed to their phones can be seen walking down any street.

It is a painful condition affecting the muscles that attach to the bones of your neck, known as the cervical spine. Text neck is a condition that affects those who use their phones and other electronic gadgets excessively.

How much time on your phone do you have to spend each day to acquire text neck? According to a poll conducted by e-marketer, the average American (including teens, young adults, middle-aged persons, and elders) spends 3 hours and 35 minutes per day on the phone, and 1 hour and 9 minutes per day on a tablet. That’s 4 hours and 44 minutes every day spent crouched over a little screen, exerting 40 to 50 pounds of pressure on the muscles in the back of the neck.

Whiplash

Whiplash causes neck pain, which is treated by almost every chiropractor. Whiplash occurs when the muscles of the neck are damaged by violent movements of the head. Neck muscles are damaged as a result of the accident’s force. Inflammation and swelling are involved in their healing process, which causes the spine’s joints to become misaligned. Inflammation, on the other hand, does not appear right away. Swollen neck muscles can take a few days to start pulling the cervical vertebrae out of position. A ripple effect can take a few days, weeks, or months to create pain not only in the neck, but also in the shoulders, arms, and hands. You can save a lot of pain by seeing your chiropractor as soon as feasible.
