Forward Head Posture – How To Fix Text Neck

Do you have a forward head brought on by being on your cell phone continuously? This is a pandemic in modern civilization and it is wreaking havoc on people’s structural integrity. Sitting in front of a computer used to be the biggest problem I tried to tackle. The text neck I am finding to be much more damaging. Position wise, holding a cell phone combined with the emotional stress that people get while being on a cell phone is the truly damaging aspect of this activity. Instead of this activity being a passive and non emotional, it has become a haven for most and muscle associations are coming along for the ride. Remember, you anxieties (we all have them) cannot escape your neuromuscular system.

If this emotional charge is present all day while you are constantly on your phone, and you are in a cervical protraction with a spine flexion, odds are you will feel the effects of a text neck. Even if you don’t show external signs of a text neck, the tension is there. Here is a video to help you with just that. Apply the techniques here lightly before really attempting to dig into your deeper restrictions.

    Hi.
    Do you have a video on piriformis syndrome? Or how to release sciatica pain?
    Thanks

      Hey Toni,

      Thanks for the message and interest in Functional Patterns.

      we don’t have anything that specifically tackles that area however a number of customers have resolved years of Sciatic pain through using the techniques in our book The Power of Posture and also our 10 week online course.

      Some clients have found that releasing their Piriformis gives them some immediate relief but this is a temporary fix, its important to address the body as a whole.

      If you not ready to take the plunge with the above links we understand, this free video tutorial may help in the mean time.

      Live intentionally, not habitually,
