Do you struggle with forward head posture? I am about to give you 2 SIMPLE MOVES to fix forward head posture. If your head sticks out in front of your shoulders, instead of above your shoulder then you probably have forward head posture.
Forward head posture can cause a lot of strain on your neck muscles, and potentially damage your cervical spine over time. Let’s get started with 2 things you can implement to fix forward head posture immediately.
Our bodies are supposed to have our head, neck, and back aligned with each other. Unfortunately, forward head posture is becoming more and more common due to an increased use of being on computers all day, using phones, video games, etc. The longer you have forward head posture, the more pain you will have in your neck and upper back.
The first thing you want to do to fix this is STRETCH YOUR NECK. This is a 3-way stretch. The first step is to TUCK YOUR CHIN AND PULL GENTLY DOWN ON YOUR HEAD. This will stretch the back of your neck and do that 3 times for 30 seconds. Next you want to TILT YOUR HEAD TO ONE SIDE, PUT YOUR HAND ON TOP, AND GENTLY APPLY PRESSURE. Do this 3 times on both sides to get a good stretch.
Now we want to retrain our neck to sit back in its proper position. You are going to do this with the CHIN TUCK. Tuck your chin as if you are trying to create a double chin, and then push your head back. I know it will look weird and probably feel weird too, but once you start to do these things you will start to see a difference in your posture. This will help alleviate a lot of stress in your neck and upper back.
Correcting forward head posture sooner than later will save you from having pain in the future, and help you avoid damage to your cervical spine. The older you get the harder you get, the harder it is to come back from injuries.
That wraps up this video guys, I hope it will help you out.
