Last time we talked about something called postural collapse and how this can cause fatigue, lack of energy, weight gain and even obesity in some people.
And as promised, today I am going to explain to you what part of your spine and the specific posture distortion pattern that can cause these health issues.
When you have good posture, from the side view your head and neck will be vertically aligned and centered directly over your hips.[flashvideo file=http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/01.05.2016.posture.distortion.patterns.bi-1.m4v image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/postural.distortion.jpg width=500 and height=305 /]
If the head and neck are positioned forwards out in front of the shoulders and/or you have humping of the upper back right at the base of the neck, this specific postural distortion pattern is referred to as forward head posture (FHP).
And FHP can cause fatigue, lack of energy, weight gain and obesity.
This was explained in our last post.
The concerning thing about FHP is that according to statistics collected by the American Posture Institute, 60 to 90% of all adults have FHP and what’s even worse, 34% of all school-aged children have FHP.
There is a lot more you need to know about regarding FHP which I am going to share with you next time, but the only way to know for sure if you have this is to get your posture checked by a posture expert.
