Scalene Muscle Stretch To Fix Forward Head Posture


Filed Under (Fitness, General) by Rick Kaselj

In today’s video, I wanted to go through a simple forward head posture stretch.

Scalene Muscle Stretch

I wanted to highlight the 2 key things that people should keep in mind when doing the scalene muscle stretch.

#1 – Look for a light stretch

You will sit nice and upright and then drop your ear towards the shoulder. You are stretching the opposite side. You have to look for a light stretch. Do not overstretch as you might rip the muscle apart and irritate the tissue that can lead to pain.

#2 – Make sure that your shoulders will not move upwards

If you are sitting, hold on to something that you can grab like a chair or a plinth. You will drop your ear towards your shoulder to intensify the stretch. If you don’t anchor with your hand or shoulder, your shoulder will just move upwards and you can’t feel the stretch.

You can anchor with your hand, bring the shoulder down and hold that in the place with your muscles and then drop your ear towards the shoulder. This will enable you to get the most out of the stretch. Hold the stretch for 20 seconds and do it twice on each side.

This is a great stretch to help overcome your forward head posture especially targeting the scalene muscle.

If you want to improve your posture and get rid of that ugly texting neck almost instantly, then check out the Forward Head Posture FIX program here:

Take care!

what if you already have the FHP and rounded shoulder posture to such a degree that you cannot achieve the alignment to start the stretch???

Hi Stan!

This is a good question. If you already have a rounded shoulder posture, you can start the exercise from the limit of alignment that you can do, and start from there. If you do back strengthening exercises and stretching of the pecs, you will slowly be able to achieve alignment. 🙂 Hope this helps!

Hi Stan! This is Samm from EFI. Start slow with the stretching. Try the best you can you get close to the alignment, and as you start to increase your range of motion, the alignment with start to come. Try looking in a mirror to help achieve the closest possible alignment! Hope this helps, good luck!
