Forward Head Posture

August 19, 2016

"A good stance and posture reflect a proper state of mind"

Forward head posture is a very common modern day postural distortion. It seems most individuals have forward head posture and do not even realise. This posture can lead to chronic pain, numbness in the arms and hands, improper breathing and even pinched nerves. This is because every inch your head goes forward there is an extra 4.5 kg of weight on your neck (The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation).

 

A way to combat this is by doing a very simple exercise called the chin retraction.

 

 

In this exercise you are simply trying to bring the head back to its correct position.
