What is Text Neck?

Text neck is a condition caused by prolonged and repetitive neck flexion, often as a result of spending long hours looking at electronic devices, such as smartphones and computers. This prolonged and repetitive neck flexion leads to neck pain, headaches, and tightness in the upper back and neck muscles. Over time, text neck can also cause changes in the spinal curves and alignment, leading to long-term chronic pain and disability. To prevent text neck, it is important to maintain good posture when using electronic devices, take regular breaks to stretch, and engage in regular exercise and stretching to maintain good neck and upper back health. Physiotherapy can be extremely helpful in treating text neck, as physiotherapists can provide pain management techniques, soft tissue mobilization, and exercises to help improve posture and relieve pain.

If you are experiencing foot pain, it is important to see a physiotherapist near you to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate rehabilitation plans.
