Over usage of electronic devices – such as smartphones, tablets, e-readers, or other handheld devices- can cause text neck or tech neck. Though technology comes with great advantages, health-wise, there are certain disadvantages. Text neck is one such concern. Text neck is the result of repetitive stress on the soft tissues in the neck and spine that occurs as a result of looking down constantly at handheld or electronic devices or unsupported neck posture for a prolonged period of time. Chiropractors can provide effective treatment for the condition. Chiropractic adjustment involves using the hands or a small device to correct misalignments of the vertebrae throughout the neck and spine. Professional chiropractic billing services are available to help providers submit error-free claims for proper reimbursement.
