Greater Moncton is facing a new rising problem - TEXT NECK. With an increasing dependence on modern technology, we seem to spending prolonged periods of time on our devices, and with damaging posture.
Moncton chiropractors, physiotherapists, and massage therapists are seeing a plethora of patients seeking care for persistent neck pain as a result of this surge in handheld entertainment. It's important to remember that maintaining ideal posture when using your mobile phone or tablet could prevent unnecessary strain on the upper back and neck. The above infographic highlights extreme loads placed on the spine as your head tilts further forward.
Technology is here to stay, so let's adapt our posture! Sit up straight and avoid TEXT NECK.
As a Moncton chiropractor, I spend a lot of time chatting to parents about their children's spinal health and what they can do at home to avoid unnecessary strain. Though technology continues to develop in the school systems, it seems that heavy chunky textbooks still end up coming home with children for homework. And, your child's spine is likely suffering due to improper weight overloading and inappropriate ergonomics with the backpack itself.
So, HOW HEAVY is too heavy? What is the PROPER way to wear a backpack?

Dr Ryan Coster & Chiro Clinic Moncton enjoy educating the community about the importance of Proper Posture. Though you may not be experiencing any pain yet, inappropriate posture can eventually lead to problems that could otherwise have been preventable. Take the time to assess your posture using the infographic above. If you are concerned or having difficulty with maintaining these recommendations, feel free to organise an appointment with Dr Coster for assessment.
