Forward head posture, also known as “text neck,” is a common problem caused by poor posture and excessive screen time. Forward head posture occurs when the head protrudes forward from its neutral position, leading to musculoskeletal problems. Causes include prolonged sitting, weak neck muscles, and poor posture habits.

 Symptoms of Forward Head Posture:

Symptoms include neck and shoulder pain, headaches, reduced neck mobility, upper back pain, muscle tension, and fatigue.

 Physiotherapy Treatment Approaches:

  1. Posture Education: Teaching proper posture and ergonomics.
  2. Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques to improve joint mobility and reduce muscle tension.
  3. Stretching Exercises: Targeted stretches for the neck, chest, and upper back.
  4. Strengthening Exercises: Exercises to strengthen weak muscles supporting proper alignment.
  5. Postural Retraining: Guiding patients to retrain their posture through exercises.
  6. Ergonomic Modifications: Recommendations for adjustments to workstations and environments.
  7. Lifestyle Modifications: Encouraging breaks, physical activity, and reduced screen time.

 Benefits of Physiotherapy:

  1. Pain Relief: Alleviating pain and discomfort associated with forward head posture.
  2. Improved Posture: Restoring proper alignment and reducing postural deviations.
  3. Increased Strength and Flexibility: Enhancing muscle strength, flexibility, and mobility.
