How Heavy is Your Head?

Updated: May 8

"Your head is heavier than a bowling ball. It’s true. For every inch that the head moves forward in posture, it increases the weight of the head on the neck by 10 pounds! An average bowling ball weighs 16lbs or less. If you consider how heavy a bowling ball is imagine how heavy your head is to hold when it juts forward.

Poor neck posture leads to head, neck, and shoulder pain. Daily activities such as working on the computer, driving, and sleeping (with bad posture) all promote a forward head posture." (Source: Alison Miller)

To correct this, it isn't enough to sit up straight or pull your shoulders back. Do you know how tiring that can be? Instead strengthen the back muscles that have been overused and overstretched; stretch the front of the chest and re-establish normal functional movement patterns. I can help you do that. Ask me how.
