Have you ever noticed Frankenstein’s walk from the side? His head is well positioned forward in front of his body. A position called Forward Head Carriage. This position puts tremendous stress upon the neck and upper back resulting in a progressive neurospinal condition affecting the spine, muscles discs, tendons and ligaments of the neck and upper back regions. Left untreated, it results damaged spinal curvature in the neck, adhesion formation, degenerative joint disease, disc pathology, osteoarthritic bone formation and neurologic interference. Overtime it can become permanent in nature and result in headaches, neck pain, upper back pain & burning, numbness & tingling in the arms and hands, lowered resistance to infection and other health problems related to the organs that those nerve supply.
Now if we compare that to the Millennial generation we see the same posture. Often the head is positioned forward in front of the shoulders. The hole in your ear should be positioned directly over your shoulders so that your spine can properly support our head. The immergence of extensive time spend in a forward head position from texting and using electronic devices is creating a condition called Tech Neck or a FrankenSpine.
Your spine and your skull protect the most important system in your body, your central nervous system. Chiropractic understands and appreciates the significant role the nervous system plays in the health of the entire body. Any disturbance or interference to the nervous system will impair its ability to communicate with the cells, tissues and organs, thus creating a physiologic state of dis-ease. If left uncorrected dis-ease leads to poor health and chronic disease.
The good news is that it is reversible with proper chiropractic care. A Gandolfi Chiropractic we use a combination of exercises and adjustments to scientifically reverse Tech Neck.
If you or a loved one suffer from Tech Neck, Gandolfi Chiropractic becomes the obvious choice.
