Children and teenagers who are frequently hunched over their mobile devices are experiencing headaches, neck pain, and shoulder pain in rapidly growing numbers. These headaches, neck pain, and shoulder pain that manifests stems from the way in which kids and teenagers hold their heads and necks when using technology, or specifically their phones. Text Neck must not be undermined and should be addressed as soon as possible with chiropractic care, before it causes permanent damage to the spine. CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY recommends visiting one of our chiropractic location for non-surgical and all-natural intervention to manipulate the spine and correct the posture.
