What should I do to correct my forward head posture?
Apr 26, 2014

Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Avoid slouching or a head-forward posture. Sit straight in your chair with your lower back supported, feet flat on the floor, and shoulders relaxed. Don't sit for long periods without getting up or changing positions. Take short breaks several times an hour to stretch your neck muscles
If you work at a computer adjust the monitor so the top of the screen is at eye level. Use a document holder that puts your work at the same level as the screen.
If you use the telephone a lot, use a headset or speaker phone. Don't cradle the phone on your shoulder.
Adjust the seat of your car to a more upright position that supports your head and lower back. Make sure that you are not reaching for the steering wheel while driving. Your arms should be in a slightly flexed, comfortable position.
Use proper lifting techniques,Lift with your knees, not your back.
