Tech neck has become an issue with the increased prevalence of tech in our homes and the abundance of time that teens and kids spend online. However, tech neck in kids has reached unprecedented levels with the emergence of the COVID-19 virus and the resultant learn-from-home regulations. The more time kids spend looking down at a screen, the greater their chance of developing tech neck, a painful condition that can lead to further complications if left unchecked. 

If your child is experiencing tech neck, reach out to Dr. Morin, Dr. Dekterov, and the rest of the chiropractic team at South Centre Chiropractic Clinic and Summerside Chiropractic in Edmonton to find out what your options are for treatment. 

What Is Tech Neck?

The muscles in your child’s neck do a lot of work whenever s/he looks down to browse the Internet on their phone or catch up with homework on their laptop. The term ‘tech neck’ refers to the neck pain that is experienced when neck muscles become overworked and sore from this constant contraction and bending motion. Tech neck is worse in kids who spend more time on the phone or computer. 

The good news is that a chiropractor can help your child get rid of painful tech neck. Contact our clinic today to get a treatment plan going to keep your child healthy. 

How Can a Chiropractor Help with Tech Neck?

Chiropractors are specially trained in handling musculoskeletal issues, including neck pain caused by tech neck. After assessing your child’s tech neck, our chiropractors will likely initiate a treatment plan that includes gentle, non-invasive adjustments. This will bring the spine back into alignment and should alleviate tech neck-related pain. 

Dr. Morin, Dr. Dekterov, and the rest of the chiropractic team will also help your child to understand the importance of proper posture and neck exercise in keeping tech neck at bay. Adjustments will not only relieve your kid’s tech neck pain, but will also increase their range of motion and make them less susceptible to tech neck in the future.
