Forward head posture


If you’ve been experiencing neck pain frequently or suffer from headaches at all, then you may have forward head posture. So keep reading this blog to find out more about how we can fix this.

Forward head posture is something that’s very common in this day and age with the use of phones and screens as part of our daily lives. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about, but it can lead to long-term issues.

Early on, poor shoulder mobility can be experienced, as well as rounded shoulders. This is because we’re looking down at our phone all the time or leaning forward towards a screen as well. Later on down the line, we can get further issues, such as arthritis or bulging or herniated discs.

Interventions that help to improve this are massage therapy, which helps to relieve some of the tension that goes through the muscles that connect in towards the front of our neck, as well as the use of kinesiology tape to help improve our posture as well.

Going on from this, the simplest advice would be just to get away from the phone as well. Take a bit of a break. Additionally, you can perform these exercises to help reduce the risks of any complications that may come about.
