Chronic Neck Pain Be Due to Technology Overuse

In today's age of big laptops, tablets, and the constant pull to check our phones, technology overuse is an epidemic.

Even if you don't notice any pain or discomfort, it doesn't mean the issue isn't there. It's important to take precautions when using technology so that the pain doesn't lead to more serious issues down the road.

If you're suffering from chronic neck pains due to technology overuse, we can help! Let this article be your guide on the best ways to manage neck pains due to possible technology overuse and your hint to give the best neck pain relief in Davie City a try already.

 

Chronic Neck Pain 101

Chronic neck pain is often caused by the strain that comes from working in front of a computer all day or spending hours on your cell phone. This type of repetitive stress injury often results in stiffness and soreness in the upper back as well as tightness in muscles along either side of the spine (for instance: the trapezius).

It also tends to come hand in hand with headaches or migraines due to poor posture when reading, texting, or watching videos on your small screen. Unfortunately, this creates unnecessary tension between shoulder blades, causing them not only to get stiff but also inflamed. It also sets off even bigger problems than just the pain that stems from sitting still too long!

 

Pains Associated with Technology Overuse

A variety of symptoms and conditions related to poor posture and repetitive strain injuries are associated with technology overuse. These may include:

  • Neck pain, which may radiate down into the upper back and shoulders
  • Headache that increases in intensity over time and is brought on by computer use or prolonged sitting with a poor posture.
  • Shoulder pain or discomfort when lifting objects from behind you such as lifting your arms up behind your head.
  • Back pain that increases when bending forward to reach for things, such as reaching for books on the floor under your desk or getting out of bed at night
  • Wrist pain when typing, especially if you type with one hand off the keyboard, holding onto an object for too long like holding onto a steering wheel while driving, or gripping something tightly like holding a pencil.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be time to evaluate your ways and routines when it comes to using your gadgets. The good news is that with a few simple adjustments, most of these problems can be alleviated.

Lifestyle Changes You Can Do to Address Neck Pains

If you’re suffering from neck pain due to technology overuse, you’ll want to make some changes. Here are a few ways to avoid further damage:

  • Use a headset or speakerphone when talking on the phone. If you have chronic neck pain and can't get away from your desk all day, try using a speakerphone instead of holding the phone up to your head. A good headset will allow your hands and arms to relax while still allowing you the ability to chat with coworkers, clients, and friends without having an awkward conversation where they can hear all of the office sounds around you.
  • Take frequent breaks from being stationary in front of screens. Whether it's walking around the block for five minutes or stretching at your desk for 10 minutes, taking regular breaks will help relieve tension and keep blood flowing through your body as well as increase productivity overall by allowing muscles to rest between periods of activity.
  • Use laptop stands or other devices that elevate monitors off desks so necks don't have so much downward pressure placed upon them.
  • Use tablets rather than laptops whenever possible—and definitely do not use laptops while lying down on couches or beds!
