We have become a society completely reliant on our electronic devices.  The average person spends 8 hours and 41 minutes per day on media devices.  91% of teens access the internet on cell phones or tablets.

When we are staring at our computers, phones, and tablets, we typically do so with poor posture. This leads to text neck in O'Fallon MO. Our back is slumped, and our head and shoulders are forward.  Being in this poor position for extended periods of time puts excess stress on the joints, discs, and nerves in the cervical spine.

Excess stress over long periods of time on these structures eventually leads to symptoms such as neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, numbness, and tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers.  If you are experiencing any of these, please call us today at (636) 272-7473 to make an appointment to see if you have Text Neck.  If so, the sooner we find the problem, the easier it is for us to help you.
