Test – Posture 2 – Side

We’ve all seen someone with it – the exaggerated forward head postureĀ  commonly called “Dowagers Hump” in old England. It is caused by a build up of muscle and connective tissue at the base of the neck required to hold the head in this forward position. Heads weigh between 8 to 16 pounds. Holding that weight forward, from its natural position over the shoulders, results in the head effectively weighing 3 times as much.

Forward head posture can also create changes in the neck (Cervical) vertebrae and the disks between the vertebrae. This can cause irreversible harm, resulting in limited mobility due to skeletal or muscle changes.
