Text Neck Smart phones are ruining your spine and you!

 With smartphone users now spending an average of two to four hours a day with their heads dropped down, this results in "700 to 1,400 hours a year of excess stresses seen about the cervical spine", according to the research.

People simply forget how often they look down at their phones and for how long.

This can cause: head pain, neck pain, arm pain and numbness More importantly it stretches your spinal cord 2-3 inches longer than it should. This ultimately decreased the connection between your brain and body by 50% after only 2 minutes.When you stand and face forward in a normal standing position, all the curves of your neck and spine are in correct alignment. But when you drop your chin on to your chest for a long period you are stretching the whole structure.

Eventually, in conjunction with a sedentary lifestyle, it could lead to serious consequences.

You can use the phone is better ways with voice recognition, siri or simply call people instead of always texting. Take regular breaks and you can even alter your texting positions to avoid problems.

It is not the first time we have been warned about the dangers of texting. In 2011 it was blamed for an increase in pedestrian deaths in the US, with some towns considering the introduction of fines for people who text while walking. "Blackberry thumb" – repetitive strain injury caused by texting – has been joined by "iPad hand", aches and pains caused by swiping and typing on a tablet. The list of ailments expands with every new piece of technology.

Getting your spine checked regularly also reduces your changes of any spinal damage occurring and increases the Brain-Body connection.

Remember, anything worth having (teeth, house, cars....spine) all need to be maintained.

God Bless,
Dr. Matthew Posa

I simply lucked out when I found Dr. Posa The staff at The Healthy Family Chiropractic are amazing and very well informed. I was in so much pain when I first visited Dr. Posa, and after 2 visits my pain decreased by 50%! After a few more visits I felt 20 years younger! Thank You! Thank You!

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. I decided to go to Dr. Posa before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pain is 95% gone and my life has changed because of Dr. Posa. Thank you so much!

From the time I walked in the door I was impressed! I was seen promptly, and Dr. Posa was a true professional. When I was younger I was in a car accident and have been suffering with neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I couldn't get out of bed! After 6 treatments I started to see relief, and today it's like the accident never happened. I've been seeing Dr. Posa for about 2 years now and I am so excited about the future!
