The Painful Cost of Technology

Texting 8


Handheld technology is fantastic at keeping us connected and entertained but too much time on our devices does come at a cost.  

Are you experiencing:

Neck, shoulder, wrist or forearm pain?  

Headaches?  

Burning between the shoulder blades? 

Numbness or tingling in your fingers? 

Too much time on your devices could be a big part of the problem. 

Try to help minimize the impact of repetitive strain:

Take breaks between emails and texts - Look straight ahead, then turn your head from side to side a few times.

Shake your forearms out regularly and do a few backward shoulder rolls.

Try the Postural Relief Position.  Click to connect to the video.


Chiropractic and acupuncture are great ways to counterbalance the physical stresses of technology. 

Ask your Chiropractor how to best protect yourself.
