Chiropractic Care For Forward Head Posture
Do you find yourself with forward head posture? Forward head posture is when bad posture is developed causing increased pressure on the neck and shoulders. Not only does forward head posture make you look like a hunchback it can have long-term negative effects such as soft tissue damage and chronic pain.
Forward neck posture can also cause neck pain, stiffness, decreased lung capacity and pull the spine out of alignment. Other symptoms of forward head posture are:
- Disc compression
- Joint pain
- Poor blood flow
Forward head posture causes subluxations in the spine which results in unnatural pressure on the joints, muscles and nerves. Chiropractors identify subluxations and adjust those joints into normal motion with treatment such as a chiropractic adjustment. A chiropractor can also recommend home exercises to strengthen upper back and neck muscles.
