Text neck may sound like a gimmicky condition, but Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan Sweeney would say otherwise. Texting tends to draws the neck forward, resulting in a posture that can cause muscle strain, as well as more serious problems such as disk hernias and pinched nerves.
To undo the effects of text neck, sports and work injuries, and other function-impacting issues, Dr. Sweeney and his team take an integrative, holistic approach that considers the whole body. Based on initial examinations, the staff—which includes massage therapist Kelly Allen and eclectic-health practitioner Dee Dee Torre—decides what treatment or combination of treatments would have the most positive impact on each patient. This might include chiropractic adjustments done alone, or in conjunction with therapies such as massage, rehabilitative strength training, or reiki healing that aims to infuse patients with healthful energy.
