  • What is Forward Head Posture and How to Correct It?


    Ever notice that after a long day spent on the computer, your neck and shoulders hurt? Or that your neck muscles begin to ache when you spend too long craning your head down to text on your phone?

    Incorrect forward head posture can lead to chronic pain, numbness in the arms and hands, improper breathing and even pinched nerves. This is because for every inch your head extends forward, your neck has to support an additional 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) of weight![1] Many people do not realize that they have poor neck posture from prolonged computer use, television viewing or incorrect sleeping positions which all affect how you hold your head. Stretch and strengthen your muscles with specific exercises to reduce tension and other symptoms of poor neck posture.

    Doctors have begun to notice a new phenomenon lately – and it’s all thanks to the fact that more people are using computers and smartphones on a daily basis.  People tend to crane their head forward, which puts significant pressure on the spine and its surrounding muscles.  This position is known as Forward Head Posture - which is a leading cause of chronic pain disorders. 

    Correcting Forward Head Posture Tips:

    • Set up your Computer Ergonomically. Raise your monitor so that the top third of your screen is at eye-level. Measure the distance from your monitor to your eyes to ensure it is 18 to 24 inches (45.7 to 61.0 cm) away from your face. You may need to prop your computer up on some books, use a taller or shorter desk, or adjust the height of your chair. Use a tape measure to determine how far your face is from your computer screen, and adjust where you place your chair accordingly. [9]
    • Use a Standing Desk at Work:  A standing desk is one of the best ways to correct forward head posture, as it teaches you to hold your head upright.  What’s more, a standing desk prevents slumping, as you’re standing up straight.
    • Hold Your Phone in Front of Your Face: When texting on your smartphone, hold the phone up so that it’s in front of your face. This position prevents your head from craning forward, which can stress and fatigue the surrounding neck muscles.
    • Stretch every 30 minutes that you’re in front of a desk, computer, or TV. If you work at a desk or work in front of a computer, get up and move around frequently to decrease the pressure on your neck and back. A brief pause to walk around every half hour can be beneficial. Try to take 30 seconds or a minute to do neck stretches every 2 hours. The same goes for sitting on the couch and watching television.[11   Gentle exercises can help relieve any pressure built up in the muscle, which can minimize the aches and pains associated with forward head posture.

    Addressing forward head posture often involves mindfulness of your posture, as well as how you’re holding your head.  Pay attention to your posture for the next day, and see how often you crane your head forward.
