With proper head posture, the head vertically aligns with the spine. Forward head posture occurs when a person leans their head forward, out of the neutral alignment with the spinal column.
If the alignment of the head is off, it can cause various symptoms, including stiffness in the neck, pain, and even balance issues. Most cases of neck pain have a posture component that is causing the symptom.
Forward head posture can strain the neck muscles putting extra pressure on the cervical spine and increasing the risk of spinal degeneration. Recognizing and understanding poor posture can help you correct the condition and relieve neck pain.
Fortunately, you can reverse forward head posture through exercise and stretching. These techniques will help you learn to align your head with the spine.
