Posture 2 Test – Side

chiropractic careForward head posture was commonly called “Dowagers Hump” in old England. That is because there is 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 of it’s natural position over the shoulders effectively increases the heads weight 3 times as much.

Forward head posture can also create changes in the neck (Cervical) vertebrae and the disks between the vertebrae causing irreversible harm. Limited mobility due to skeletal or muscle changes is often the result.
