Poor Posture: What are the effects?

The graphic demonstrates the progression of forward head posture (FHP). This puts compressive loads upon the upper thoracic vertebra, and is also associated with the development of Upper Thoracic Hump, which can devolve into Dowager Hump when the vertebra develop compression fractures. Would you be surprised that your neck and shoulders hurt if you had a 20-pound watermelon hanging around your neck? That’s what FHP can do to you. Left uncorrected, it will continue to decline.
