Massage for ‘Text Neck’
Mobile Massage Therapist Newcastle Angela Mackintosh, Remedial Massage Therapist - The first smartphone was introduced by Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs in 2007. They definitely have their positive points in our busy lives but they do come with loads of negative impacts, once being ‘text neck’. The disorder is associated with chronic headaches and shoulder/neck pain.
The average human head weighs about 12 pounds—but for every inch the head hangs forward, the amount of weight put on the spine increases by 10 pounds. In this forward head posture, it can result in a loss of the natural curve of the spine.
This is where massage can help to relieve those tight knots in muscles, ligaments and tendons supporting the neck and areas of the spine.
