Backpacks are a big cause of forward head posture; children today are now using backpacks to carry schoolbooks and laptops back and forth every day that weigh up to 30 or 40 pounds!
This stress put on children’s backs and shoulders force them to position their head forward to counter balance the weight resulting in abnormal stress to the discs, joints, and nerves of the neck, shoulders and lower back
Video games, TV, and the computer are putting major stress on our necks as well. Most kids are using poor #posture when playing video games or watching TV. Repetitively sitting in one position for long periods of time causes the body to adapt to this bad posture. The combination of corporate America and the Internet has allowed F.H.P to be relevant as ever, as it is very common in people who sit in front of the computer for most of the day.
The human body was not designed for extended periods of sitting, our bodies naturally adapt to the surrounding environment and as we continually have ourselves sitting in unconventional positions such as hours of sitting in the same sport, certain muscles that are responsible for good posture will weaken and tighten.
