Forward Head Posture Relief

Posture or FHP is 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 kinetic chain imbalance and dysfunction.  That can cause intense pain in several areas of the body.

The Weight of Your Head Increases Dramatically with FHP

The human head weighs between eight and twelve pounds 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.  As a result, the relative weight of the head over the body doubles due the effects of gravity for every one inch your head moves forward.
