5 Ways Technology’s Damaging Your Spinal Health 

Now think about how, when busy on an iPhone or tablet, you hold your device down, out, and away from you—you most likely tilt your head downward so your eyes can meet the screen. This may seem innocuous, but the long-term effects of this position have a medical diagnosis: sometimes called ‘text neck’ or ‘computer neck’, its official name is Forward Head Posture (FHP).

 Chiropractic care seeks to address and correct problems like FHP. By slowly adjusting the body’s accumulated structural habits through routine therapies and corrective exercises, chiropractic can work to undo the long-term physiological effects—and their painful and debilitating symptoms—of problems like FHP. It’s worth noting that chiropractic care has been shown to be more cost-effective than other comparable therapy options.

And luckily, you won’t have to give up your iPad.
