Addressing Symptoms of Chronic Forward Head Posture

Are you experiencing neck pain, headaches, or shoulder tension? These symptoms may be related to a

common issue known as Forward Head Posture (FHP). FHP occurs when the head is positioned forward of the body’s center of gravity, often due to prolonged use of computers, smartphones, and other devices.

Symptoms of Chronic Forward Head Posture


Patients with FHP may experience:

   •    Neck Pain: Persistent discomfort or stiffness in the neck.


   •    Headaches: Tension headaches that can originate from the base of the skull.


   •    Shoulder Tension: Tightness and pain in the shoulders, often extending to the upper back.


   •    Reduced Mobility: Difficulty in moving the neck and shoulders freely.


   •    Fatigue: Generalized tiredness, especially in the upper body.


   •    Poor Posture: Noticeable rounding of the shoulders and a forward-tilted head.


How Chiropractic Care Can Help

As a chiropractor, I specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal issues like FHP. Here’s how we can address this problem together:

   1.    Chiropractic Adjustments: Realigning the spine and neck to improve posture and alleviate pressure on stressed muscles.


   2.    Soft Tissue Mobilization: Targeting tight and overworked muscles such as the levator scapula, semispinalis capitis, and suboccipital muscles to relieve tension and pain.


   3.    Postural Exercises: Strengthening and stretching exercises tailored to correct FHP and prevent recurrence.


   4.    Ergonomic Advice: Providing guidance on proper workstation setup and daily habits to maintain a healthy posture.
