Do YOU have it?

Anterior Head Syndrome

"To live a long, active, energetic life, few things matter more than good posture."
- Renee Calliet, M.D.

Do you experience tension or spasm in the neck and shoulders in Jupiter FL? Do you feel as though you have a "granny hump' on your back or rounded shoulders with your head protruding forward? Posture with your head forward, in which your ears are not lined up with your shoulders or are in front of your shoulders and your shoulders are rounded, is known as Anterior Head Syndrome. In fact, for every inch your ears are forward from your shoulders, the muscles of your neck and back work ten times harder to support the weight of your head. Posture affects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture (AJPM 1994). The following list represents conditions that are often the result of anterior (forward) head shift known as Anterior Head Syndrome:

  • Neck & Back pain

  • Numbness & Tingling
  • Muscular spasm& Tension
  • Headaches (including migraine)
