DID YOU KNOW? The effects of long term forward neck posture leads to "long term muscle strain, disc herniations and pinched nerves."  Mayo Clinic Health Letter Vol. 18, #3 March 2000

It was noted in regard to Respiratory Dysfunction in Chronic Neck Pain Patients; …"the study demonstrated a strong association between an increased forward head posture and decreased respiratory muscle strength in neck patients." - The journal Cephalalgia, 2009 Feb 2

"For every inch of forward head posture, it can increase the weight of the head on the spine by an additional 10 pounds." - Kapandji, Physiology of Joints, Vol 3.

Forward head posture (FHP) can add up to thirty (30) pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine. This can pull the entire spine out of alignment. -Rene Cailliet, M.D., Director of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Southern California

FHP has been shown to flatten the normal neck curve, resulting in disc compression, damage, and early arthritis. - Gore DR, Sepic SB, Gardner GM. Roentgenographic findings of the cervical spine in asymptomatic people. Spine 1986; 6:591-694

FHP results in loss of vital capacity of the lungs by as much as 30%.  This shortness of breath can lead to heart and blood vascular disease. -Rene Cailliet, M.D., Director of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Southern California

The entire gastrointestinal system is affected; particularly the large intestine.  Loss of good bowel peristaltic function and evacuation is a common effect of FHP. -Rene Cailliet, M.D, Director of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Southern California

Testimonial

I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the Text Neck study. This significant intervention was life changing, and I will continue with my care plan and stay vigilant of my posture while using electronics. I have even decreased my amount of texting in hopes to further prevent Text Neck! Words cannot express how grateful I am for having been part of the study.
