Fixing Forward Head Posture to Resolve Neck Pain
A common reason patients visit chiropractors is to seek treatment to heal their neck pain. Why patients suffer from this could be due to a traumatic injury, but most of the time, it is because forward head posture takes a toll on their necks. With manual therapies and instructions you can take advantage of on your own, BodyFixers mobile chiropractors are capable of solving your forward head posture and neck pain!
How Forward Head Posture Hurts Your Neck
Given a head typically weighs 10 to 11 pounds, leaning it forward strains the muscles supporting it. When someone leans forward to look at a computer or other device, that person is adding approximately 10 pounds to the muscles supporting the head and neck every inch leaned forward. To demonstrate how much pain your muscles supporting your head and neck endure, place a 10-pound object close to your body and proceed to stretch it farther away from you. As its proximity from you increases, how much heavier it feels will become quite evident. Then imagine putting your muscles through that on a daily basis!
Symptoms of Forward Head Posture
Any type of pain in your neck should be addressed, but to have an idea of what it is you are exactly experiencing, here are some symptoms of forward head posture:
- Dull pain or soreness across the side or back of neck, shoulder, upper back or head.
- Fibromyalgia, a form of fatigue caused by widespread musculoskeletal pain.
- Severe burning pain in muscles.
- Stiff neck.
- Numbness in hands.
To rid yourself of these or any other discomforts forward head posture is responsible for, do not hesitate to receive treatment from BodyFixers!
Consequences of Avoiding Treatment
People who delay receiving chiropractic care for their forward head posture-induced neck pain may be alright in the near future, but failing to eventually be treated may result in long-term damage:
- Constant strain injures soft tissues in the back of the neck, shoulders and upper back.
- Reduce neck mobility.
- Cervical curve straightens.
- Muscle fatigue.
- Muscle atrophy.
