Forward Head Posture
is a correctible condition that can be the result of trauma (intense and fast stress on the neck) or long term cumulative stress such as poor posture. The  x-rays below are example before and after treatment to correct forward head posture and its negative effects on your health.

Tragically this is an underdiagnosed common problem in our society that causes a myriad of sypmtoms effectingthe entire body.  The problem stems from whiplash injuries from car crashes, football and other sports, and our flexion dominated society (cell phones, PDA's, computers, TV viewing, poop posture, etc...) often is not properly treated
 
Here is what some experts say about the detrimental effects of forward head posture and altered spinal structure:

 

“Forward head posture leads to long term muscle strain, disc herniations, arthritis and pinched nerves.”  The Mayo Clinic, Nov. 3rd, 2000

“For every inch of forward head posture, 

it can increase the weight ofthe head on the spine by an additional 10 pounds.”
 Kapandji, Physiology of Joints, Vol 3.

“Loss of the cervical curve stretches the spinal cord 5-7 cm and causes Disease.”  
Dr. Alf Breig, Neurosurgeon (Nobel Prize Recipient)

90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine” Dr. Roger Sperry, (Nobel Prize Recipient for Brain Research)

Additionally, Dr. Sperry demonstrated that 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body to gravity.  Only 10% has to do with thinking, metabolism, and healing, so when you have forward head posture your brain will rob energy from your thinking, metabolism, and immune function to deal with abnormal gravity/posture relationships and processing.

"To live a long, active, energetic life, few things matter more than good posture"  
Rene Calliet, MD (The Rejuvenation Strategy)

"Posture effects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production.  Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are among the most easily influenced by posture"  
American Journal of Pain Management, 1994;4: p36-39.

Bottom line here is that, you can fix this problem with specific exercise, spinal adjustments, traction protocols, and ergonomic considerations.  I do this everyday at my office and get great results with my patients.  The technique I use in practice is called CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics / Clinical Biomechanics of Posture).  This is the most highly researched and published technique in chiropractic and you can research (over 100 published research papers.)

I wish I had known about this place sooner! In just two treatments I'm more explosive than I had been in years! lol I wish I was making this stuff up, but just give it a try like I did and you'll see for yourself!
