A Heads up About Forward Head Posture

Girls texting.

“Text neck” can cause major problems in the spine.

Whether we’re hunched over our desks at work or slumped on the sofa with our Smartphones, the result is Forward Head Posture (FHP).

While technology is evolving, humanity is devolving into a bent-over, sedentary species. 60-90% of adults and 34% of school-aged children present with FHP.

Posturally weak children become chronically ill adults with no core musculature control, decreased flexibility and diminished strength. FHP (also known as “Text Neck”) is a modern-day health epidemic, robbing people of all ages of the health and quality of life they deserve.

The good news is that Dr. David J. Matheson can help!

Other common causes of poor posture:

  • Slouching with the shoulders forward while reading, looking at computer, etc.
  • Improper lifting techniques
  • Habitually carrying heavy bag over the same shoulder
  • Sitting on wallet, which contributes to “pelvic unlevelling”
  • Physical trauma (motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, etc.)
  • Wearing shoes that do not support feet (distorts natural weight distribution)
  • Standing with torso shifted over one hip
  • Sleeping on stomach causes increased rotation of the neck (cervical spine) and increased extension of the low back (lumbar spine)
