How heavy is your head?

forward head
Do you often feel like your head is too heavy for your neck? Well, it probably is. Our daily rituals of driving, using hand held devices, and working in poor posture positions can lead to a problem called forward-head carry. In other words, the further forward we hold our head, the heavier our head becomes for our spine to support. This is a problem that can lead to neck and shoulder pain, headaches and, if it's there long enough, permanent degenerative changes to our spine. This is something that you can easily check on your whole family - just check to see if the ears line up with the shoulders. Exercises, chiropractic adjustments, and stretches can correct this type of misalignment.
