In this video, I wanted to go through a forward head posture adjustment that you can do.
Forward Head Posture Adjustment (You Can Do Yourself)
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I’ll get Chris to demonstrate.
Before you can start going through the movement, you need to make sure that you are set into a good posture. You are in a good alignment with head, shoulders and hips. You will tilt the head down and bring the head back then elongate the back of the head. You will start off with 5 repetitions, holding the end position for about 5 seconds.
Do not overdo it. You don’t want to bring the head way far back or overstretch the back of the head. Overstretching the back of the head will irritate the tissue that can lead to pain and headaches. You are looking for a light stretch. It is more important for you to do this exercise often as opposed to doing a hundred in a row which can overstretch the tissues. You can progress to 10 repetitions with 10 seconds hold.
This is a great simple exercise that you can do anywhere to help adjust your neck.
