Poor Posture & Forward Head Syndrome
What Is Forward Head Syndrome?
The forward head syndrome is extremely common in today’s society and describes a condition where, due to changes in posture, the head juts forward. This can be mild or severe and is affected by different factors such as type of work, age, arthritis, and genetic factors.
Due to prolonged sitting, poor posture with work, sitting at a computer, and a host of other common postures, changes in your spine can occur over time. Think about how much time you spend looking into a screen or hunched over a desk. If your 12–15lb head is just 1 inch forward of your shoulder, it produces 300% more pressure in your neck.
This can lead to a variety of symptoms from neck pain, to headaches and even impinged nerves radiating pain into the arms & hands.
