Why it Matters:
Think of your posture as a dynamic pattern of responses, reflexes, and habits – not just as a fixed position.
Gravity, your work environment, and your body’s anatomy all play essential roles. For instance, sitting for hours at a time staring at a computer screen is a perfect example of a damaging static posture that over time can lead to the development of chronic forward head posture.
Forward head posture affects millions of people who spend their days using computers and has the potential to cause pain and degenerative changes in your spinal joints. It places stress on the neck and shoulders and weakens the supporting muscles.
