The human body is a complex system that can be difficult to understand. The body must maintain a three-dimensional balance to function properly. One way the body achieves this balance is through the use of muscles that work opposite one another, called agonists and antagonists.
If an individual has a forward head posture before and after, then the muscles involved are not balanced. Which can result in a variety of health problems including muscle tension, headaches, fatigue, and back pain. Improving your posture will help to relieve these symptoms. Forward head posture may also result in numbness or tingling sensations in the arms and hands.
