Forward Head Posture or FHP is really a condition where your head tilts forward. When your head tilts forward, it creates a snowball effect of problems with your body because your body has to compensate for the displacement of your head. The shift affects your shoulders, hips and neck in such a way that causes intense pain in several areas of the body.
The Weight of Your Head Increases Dramatically with FHP
The human head weighs between eight and 10 lbs on average. When Forward Head Posture starts to develop the weight of your head begins to increase because your head begins to move forward away from its balanced position. Actually, the relative weight of the head over the body doubles due the effects of gravity for every 1 inch your head moves forward.
