Take Care of Your Posture

on December 1, 2012

For every inch that the head moves forward in posture, it increases the weight of the head in the neck by 10 pounds !!

… Poor neck posture leads to a Forward Head Position, which is one of the most common causes of neck, head and shoulder tension and pain. This can be a result of injuries like sprains, and strains of the neck leading to weak neck muscles, poor sleeping positions and the illustrated examples of driving stress, computer neck, couch neck and readers neck along with improper breathing habits.

The extra pressure on the neck from altered posture flattens the normal curve of the cervical spine resulting in abnormal strain of muscles, ligaments, bones and joint of the neck causing the joints to deteriorate faster than normal resulting in degenerative joint disease or neck arthritis.
