Avoiding Forward Head Posture

Forward-head-posture-conditionForward Head Posture (FHP) is a condition where the position of your head moves forward from the center of your shoulders.  This in turn shifts your center of gravity, and the weight of your head seemingly increases dramatically.  Symptoms of FHP include:

  • Musculoskeletal complaints
  • Loss of lung capacity
  • Muscle tension headaches
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Back/neck pain
  • Muscle strain and instability
  • Disc herniations
  • Pinched nerves

FHP can stem from a variety of life choices, but one of the biggest culprits lately is hunching over electronics.  Looking for a way to snap out of your own bad habit?  Believe it or not, there’s an app for that.  The Text Neck Institute has created an Android app that reminds users of potentially poor posture.  After all, being mindful of your posture is the first step towards improving it.
